RUBIO, Luis A; CHERNIKOFF, Raúl E; MUNOZ, Ernesto y SINI, Sergio A. Experimental study to predict evaporators performance. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2007, vol.18, n.2, pp. 83-86. ISSN 0718-0764. doi: 10.4067/S0718-07642007000200013.
In this work, an industrial scale evaporator with one tube, that can be assembled in six different ways, was designed and constructed. A model based on the identification and reduction of variables was developed and an experimental evaluation was made by operating the evaporator in a climbing forced circulation. The data were related applying the global model and a simple predicting equation as function of independent macroscopic variables was obtained. Further research should include reconciliation of the equation obtained for the global model with those to be obtained by the application of the local model.
