Cryogenic heat exchanger with turbulent flows
J. Amrit1, C. Douay1, F. Dubois2, G. Defresne1

An evaporator-type cryogenic heat exchanger is designed and built for introducing fluid-solid heat exchange phenomena to undergraduates in a practical and efficient way. The heat exchanger functions at liquid nitrogen temperature and enables cooling of N2 and He gases from room temperatures. We present first the experimental results of various parameters which characterize the heat exchanger (efficiency, number of transfer units, heat exchange coefficient, etc) as a function of the mass flow rate of the gas to be cooled. An analysis of the Nu-Re diagram is also presented. All experiments were conducted with N2 gas. The scope of this tool is readily extended to research purposes.
