Abstract :

An industrial application of plate heat exchangers is demonstrating a large dominance over the shell and tube heat exchangers. In this paper focus on the modeling a copper plate heat exchanger for milk pasteurization in a food industry using high temperature for a short time. The efficiency of the plate heat exchange depends on numerous factors like space requirement, material required for construction, pressure drop and energy requirement for circulation of milk and water by using pump. This paper presents theoretical analysis of counter flow copper plate type heat exchanger and CFD analysis of pressure drop for milk and water over plate heat exchanger.
