A low cost, laboratory scale flow loop dedicated to the evaluation of convective heat transfer coefficients in liquids is available at ESI.
-Current liquid temperatures can vary from room temperature to 250 degrees F.
Fluid heating is achieved via an electrically powered generator
Convective heat transfer coefficients have been correlated to published literature and found to be in excellent agreement. Recently convective heat transfer coefficients of newly formulated nano-fluids have been successfully studied.
