Chemical Engineering Transactions
An experimental investigation was performed, and results are presented here for an evaporation and condensation heat transfer study that took place using enhanced heat transfer (1EHT) tubes of different outside diameters. Results were compared to the performance of a smooth surface copper tube. The equivalent outer diameter of the horizontal copper tubes considered were 12.7 mm (0.5 in) and 19.05 mm (0.75 in). The test apparatus included a straight horizontal test section with an active length heated by water. Constant heat flux was maintained and refrigerant quality varied.
