Original Abstract

Recently, polymer hollow fibers have been popular for making heat exchangers, known as polymeric hollow fiber heat exchangers (PHFHEs), because their superior characters, including corrosion resistance, cost-effectiveness, light-weight, high ratio of surface-area to volume, dual transport ability, and less douling ability. A PHFHE has been designed for the use in an automobile radiator. Experiments have been conducted to evaluate the effects of the major operating parameters on the thermal performance of the PHFHE. A second heat exchanger made of stainless steel tubes has also been built with the volume size similar to that of the PHFHE built, so that the results fom these two heat exchangers can bo compared with each other. Preliminary results indicate that the overall heat transfer coefficient of PHFHE is about 12% higher than of the stainless steel heat exchanger at similar operation conditions.
