This software tool is made to demonstrate the thermal design calculations of Shell & Tube condensers. The tool can design, horizontal condensers, vertical condensers including reflux condensers.
Below is a list of main features:
Support S.I Units/English (U.S) Units of measurement
Import physical properties data to hot side and cold side from Microsoft Excel & from WeBBusterZ
Physical properties database (included)
Export Results to Engineering Data sheet in Microsoft Excel for editing
Export Results summary to Microsoft Word or Print Results summary.
Horizontal (shell side/tube side),Vertical (shell side/tube side) and Reflux condensers thermal design.
Full/Partial condensation (Subject to condensation model selection please visit webbusterz for more information).
Sub cooling, Zone analysis, Shear Controlled and Gravity Controlled condensation (Subject to condensation model).
Basis and assumptions that the software makes during the calculations are stated on a visible panel.
Support single phase vapor condensation on hot side and liquid coolant on cold side, bare tubes only
Calculate unknown Cold side temperature, Unknown Hot or cold side flow rate.
Triangular and square pitch tube orientation
Detailed results displays many calculated variables such as: Duty, Area, Number of tubes, Shell/Tube velocities, flooding velocity and operating velocity for reflux condenser, Reynolds numbers, Condensation heat transfer coefficient, flow regime, Number of Baffles and Baffle spacing, Scale resistance (dirt factor), Overall heat transfer coefficient for both Clean and Fouled conditions, Pressure drops.
Track calculation changes from trial to another
Basic Physical Properties estimation database included as separate software (Contains 1450 components)
Add your own properties in the additional user databases
Tube counts,standard tube sizes tables,Thermal conductivities.
