Abstract

An experimental study on four louver fin tube heat exchangers were carried out in a forced-circulation wind tunnel. The heat exchangers consist of three anti-corrosion coated louver fin heat exchangers with various fin pitches and one non-coated louver fin heat exchanger. The effect of anti-corrosion coating on both dry and wet operating conditions were investigated. In addition, the effect of fin pitches was also shown in the present investigation. Data were presented in terms of total j factors, sensible j factors and friction factor f.
