Abstract

The present study examines the performance difference between straight and coiled capillary tubes. The test results indicate that the helical effect increased with decrease of the diameter of coiling, and the effect of inlet conditions is relatively small. Based on the present test results, a simple relation is proposed which can quantitatively describe the difference between coiled and straight capillary tubes.
