Gasketed Plate Heat Exchanger Design (PHex v7.0) is a software tool that is made to demonstrate the thermal analysis and calculations of Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers. The calculations are performed through a series of click buttons arranged in order.
Please note that the software can only do the basic design calculations the mechanical design!.
The software is easy to use and have the ability to calculate unknown temperatures
The plate dimensions and materials can be entered, this includes the size of plate heat exchanger and chevron angle
Below is a list of main features:
||Support S.I Units and English (U.S) Units of measurement
||Unit converter containing 23 measurements with 200-unit conversion.
||Full version includes manufacturers plate database containing over 230 plates.
||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 format (Microsoft Excel or pdf)
||Export Results summary to Microsoft excel or Print Results summary.
||Temperature and Flow rate estimation in the event of insufficient data.
||Heat load required (clean or fouled) calculations.
||Total effective area calculation.
||Surface area calculation.
||Number of plates calculations.
||Overall Coefficient (clean / dirty) calculations
||Pressure drop Channel/Port/Total for Hot side and cold side Calculations.
||Plate heat exchanger dimension calculations.
||Velocity through ports, Mass velocity through channel/ports calculations.
||Reynolds and Nusselt numbers calculations.
||Select from a list of 12 Nusselt number correlations.
||Heat transfer coefficient calculations
||Ability to define a heat load
||Calculate two unknown temperatures
||Estimate the Physical properties of pure components for more than 1450 components; the database has the ability to estimate Thermal Conductivity, Density, Heat Capacity and Viscosity. The database also included critical properties, boiling and melting points and come as separate software but easily integrated with the software.
||Create your own database of Plates and Components. You can add your fluid physical properties and load the data to your project.
||Add your own Nusselt number correlation in two different formats through correlations database and use them during software calculations
||Overall heat transfer coefficients
||Material Thermal Conductivities.
There is also the option to specify a Heat Load as well as the ability to calculate any unknown two temperatures, to calculate two unknown temperatures the heat load and the flow rates must be specified.
The demo version will function with limitations for 30 days
