ay 1552M T RNEY CORRUGATED METAL TUBING The production of potable water from saline water requires extensive quantities of v heat-transfer surface in the form of condenser tubing. Estimates have variously placed the capital investment involved with the heat exchange surface in desalting plants at as much as 50 percent of the total.

Accordingly, it becomes extremely pertinent in the continuing efforts to reduce the cost of potable water that the cost of the heat-transfer surface be reduced. it is known in the art that corrugated tubing or surface enhancement provides an improved heat-transfer coefficient as compared to a plain cylindrical tube.

It is further well known that large amounts of cooling water, sea water in the case of desalting apparatus, must be pumped through condenser tubing. Surface enhancement always leads to increased pumping requirements because the pressure drop, AP, on the inside of the condenser tubes is increased by the surface enhancement. Thus it becomes highly desirable to provide for improved condenser tubing in which the heat transfer is maximized but the increase in the pressure drop kept as low as practical.

It is highly desirable, however, to provide still further improvement in this art. 7

Accordingly, it is a principal object of the present invention to provide an improved metal tubing.

A further object of the present invention is toprovide a large increase in heat transfer with a minimum increase in pressure drop.

It is a still further object of the present invention to provide an improved tubing as aforesaid which achieves a surprisingly high heat-transfer coefficient at a reasonable cost.

Still further objects and advantages of the present invention will appear from the ensuing specification, especially when taken into consideration with the accompanying drawings,

wherein:

FIG. 1 graphically represents heat-transfer data from the examples which form a part of the present specification; and

FIG. 2 shows a side view of a portion of representative tubing of the present invention.

in accordance with the present invention it has now been found that the foregoing objects and advantages may be readily achieved and a metal tubing with improved heat transfer provided. The tubing of the present invention comprises a hollow corrugated tube having a plurality of lands and grooves extending along the circumference thereof, said grooves comprising at least two independent, continuous grooves extending helically along the circumference of the tube, with each groove being in spaced relationship to each other, with said tubing satisfying the following formula:

(L.W./G.\V.)+(X0.03) From 0.5 to 2.25 wherein LW. land width, G.W. groove width, and 0 angle of advance of the helically extending grooves. in the preferred embodiment of the present invention the grooves comprise three independent, continuous grooves extending helically along the circumference of the tube, with each groove being in spaced relationship to each other.

In accordance with the present invention it has been found that the foregoing corrugated metal tubing achieves a surprising high heat-transfer coefficient. This surprising heat-transfer coefficient could not be anticipated even in view of the improved heat-transfer coefficient obtained by corrugated tubing in general.

A further advantage of the improved heat-transfer coefficient is the resultant equipment savings and many other cost savings in heat exchange machinery. This is especially important in cases where large capital investment is required.

In accordance with the present invention the metal tubing may be corrugated by any method known in the art. A particularly preferred method and apparatus is shown in copending application Ser. No. 679,459, now abandoned, by Joseph Winter for "Apparatus For Forming Corrugated Tubing." ln accordance with the teaching of the foregoing patent application, corrugated tubing is produced by an apparatus characterized by having an inner frame movably mounted on an outer frame, with a die rotatably mounted on the inner frame. The die has an annular opening through which passes the tube to be corrugated and shaped die members projecting into the annular opening. The pitch and depth of the spirals or corrugations can be adjusted and controlled over a wide range of configurations. The resultant corrugated tubing is characterized by having a plurality of lands and grooves extending helically along the circumference thereof. In cross section, the tube has a plurality of uniform, symmetrical, wavelike in, dentations, with the wall thickness of the tube being approxi mately uniform throughout. The grooves comprise a plurality of independent, continuous grooves extending helically along the circumference of the tube, with each groove being in spaced relationship to each other.

The tubing of the present invention may be made of a wide variety of metals and their alloys. For example, copper and its alloys, aluminum and its alloys, titanium and its'alloys, iron and its alloys and so forth. Corrugated tubing made from welded seam tubemay be readily used. 7

The corrugated tubing of the present invention should preferably have a wall thickness from 0.010 inch to 0.50 inch and an outside diameter of from 0.25 inch to 10.5 inch.

in use, when tubing is corrugated normally a section of the tubing is left uncorrugated to provide a plain undistorted tube wall at each end of the corrugated tubing for a locus for sealing into a tube sheet. A multitude of tubes are conventionally attached to tube sheets which separate the heat-transfer media on the outside from the heat-transfer media on the insideof the tubes. The tubes are normally sealed at the point between the heat exchange tubes and the tube sheet by rolling in the tubes or by welding or by brazing.

As pointed out hereinabove, it is a finding of the present invention that improved overall heat-transfer coefficient, U is obtained when the tubing satisfies the following formula:

(L.W./G.W.)-H 0x0.03) From 0.5 to 2.25 The term L.W. refers to the land width in inches, with the land being measured at right angles instead of along the tube axis. The term G.W. refers to the groove width measured in the same manner. The term 0 refers to the angle of advance of the helically extending grooves from a right angle to the tube axis. ln general, it can be stated that the lower the value of (L.W.IG.W.'), the better the heat-transfer coefficient. It may be hypothesized that the lower values of L.W./G.W. are caused by larger groove widths in relation to smaller land widths which enhance liquid film thinning at the peaks of the lands and decreases film thickening at the valleys of the grooves. The relatively larger groove width in relation to relatively smaller land width is clearly shown in FIG. 2, wherein reference numeral 1 shows the plain uncorrugated end'and reference numeral 2 shows the corrugated portion. This is particularly apparent with respect to the heat-transfer coefficient on the steam side.

The value for (L.W./G.\V.)+(0X0.03) may for convenience be termed the heat transfer efiiciency number, P.

Furthermore, the overall heat-transfer coefficient for corrugated tubes may be expressed in terms of the above geometric parameters by the following formula:

U,,=l245-l-48.3P62.2P'-+8.34P wherein P is the heat-transfer efficiency number defined above and U, is the overall heat-transfer coefficient. in accordance with this equation for the enhancement of the present invention, the value of P may vary from 0.5 to 2.25.

in addition to the foregoing, the pressure drop, AP, should be kept at a reasonable value, preferably between 0.6 and 4.5 at 6 feet per second of water.

The present invention will be morereadily apparent from a consideration of the following illustrative examples.

EXAMPLE I This example utilizes a copper base alloy having the following'composition: iron, 2.3 percent; phosphorus, 0.025 percent; copper essentially balance. Several pieces of seamwelded tubing were prepared from the foregoing alloy having a tube length of 42 inches. The tubing had a 1-inch OD. and a wall thickness of 0.049 inch. Some of the tubing was formed characteristics thereof.
