Flow distribution issues in parallel flow heat exchangers

Pega S. Hrnjak

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This paper discusses issues of single- and two-phase flow distribution in manifolds of heat exchangers: flow in the tube after the expansion valve, flow regimes in the manifold, and pressure drop in the heat exchanger channels. A few typical options for reasonable distribution are shown.
