摘要: Experiments are carried out here to measure the evaporation heat transfer coefficient h(r) and associated frictional pressure drop DeltaP(f) in a vertical plate heat exchanger for refrigerant R-410A. The heat exchanger consists of two vertical counterflow channels which are formed by three plates whose surface corrugations have a sine shape and a chevron angle of 60 deg. Upflow boiling of refrigerant R-410A receives heat from the hot downflow of water. In the experiments, the mean vapor quality in the refrigerant channel is varied from 0.10 to 0.80, the mass flux from 50 to 100 kg/m(2)s, and the imposed heat flux from 10 to 20 kW/m(2) for the system pressure fixed at 1.08 and 1.25 MPa. The measured data indicate that both h(r) and DeltaP(r) increase with the refrigerant massflux except at low vapor quality. In addition, raising the imposed heat flux is found to significantly improve h(r) for the entire range of the mean vapor quality. However the corresponding friction factor f(tp) is insensitive to the imposed heat flux and refrigerant pressure. Based on the present data, empirical correlations are provided for h(r) and f(tp), for R-410A in the plate heat exchanger.
