Air cooled heat exchanger software (ACHex) is made to demonstrates the thermal design and sizing calculations of Air cooled heat exchangers. The software will design horizontal induced draft or forced draft units for liquid and gas services and will produce a three page summary of all results and a basic drawing representation
Thermal design and sizing calculations of Air cooled heat exchangers design. Below is a list on the main features:
Induced draft/forced draft operation modes, Calculate the nr. of Bays/Fans/Tubes/Tube rows/Tube bundles, Bundle Face Area, Total Bundle Face Width, Bundle Width, Surface Area for Bare Tubes and Fin Tubes, Air Mass Flow Rate, Log Mean Temperature Difference, Fin Efficiency, Fan Diameter and Total Fans Projected Area Per Bay, Fan Driver Power requirement.Calculate Outlet Air Temperature using iteration or incrementing techniques.
5. Calculate the Tube Side Flow Area, Tube Side Velocity, Tube Side Reynolds' Nr, Tube Side Flow Regime and Tube Side Nusselt..and many more features
Affordable unlike other software in the same industry which cost thousands of dollars, easy to use as it has a clear step by step approach, flexible and allows users to enter data or calculate it.
This software mainly targests professional engineers, engineering students and academics in the chemical and process engineering field
