Glass packing materials used for intensification of heat transfer at boiling on tubular surfaces

The paper presents the results obtained in determining the partial heat transfer coefficient at boiling on vertical and horizontal tubular surfaces surrounded by different types of glass packing material. In both cases, an intensification of heat transfer can be noticed as compared to the boiling on the same installation performed without glass packing materials. During the experiments pseudo-critical values of thermal flux appear on the vertical and horizontal heating tube with glass packing materials, and the boiling heat transfer coefficient, α, has lower critical values than that on nucleate ordinary boiling. This denotes a differential heating mechanism, determined by the presence of the glass package around the heating tube. The heat transfer intensification is greater with the horizontal tube than with the vertical one.
