Dear to all


Would you be so kind as to clarify, what is meant by the term "No. of Crosspasses" on Data Sheet of Heat Exchanger


Is this term related with the number of baffles perpendicular to the flow?


Thanks very much

Crosspasses is a term that HTRI uses. It identifies the different characteristics of baffles.

No. of Crosspasses = No. of baffles + 1

As the fluid travels through the shell side of a shell and tube exchanger, it passes nominally perpendicular across the tube bundle because the baffles partially block the flow. The fluid changes direction when it gets to the other side of the baffle and travels perpendicular to the tubes in the opposite direction. Each time the fluid passes perpendicular to the tube bundle is a crosspass.
