Heat Transfer Laboratory helps the students to understand the basic concepts of heat transfer: Conduction, Convection and Radiation which are the three basic modes for heat transfer to take place. To enhance the practical knowledge of industrial equipments, students perform experiments on some common heat transfer equipments such as Double Pipe Heat Exchanger, Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger and Single Effect Evaporator etc.

List of Major Equipment

  • Boiler
  • Different types of Heat exchangers (DPHE,STHE,FTHE,BTHE)
