Abstract

Thermally driven chillers (absorption or desorption systems) use heat instead of electricity to activate the generator of an absorption chiller. This work presents an experimental facility designed for testing innovative components of a simple effect absorption cooling system. The study focuses on the single phase heat transfer in a plate heat exchanger operating as a generator. The resulting total heat transfer coefficient U and Nusselt number Nu are given. The corresponding results are analyzed and correlation equations have been obtained and compared with those reported in the literature. The obtained results will be useful to predict the functioning of the plate heat exchanger for research and simulation.
