Fouling Factors

When residue and dirt accumulate on the tube walls of heat exchangers that have been in use for an extended period of time, the effective heat transfer coefficient will decrease. The resistances to heat flow due to the surface residues are known as fouling factors. INSTED®/Database allows you to access various heat exchanger fouling factors.

Fluids in the database are arranged into seventeen categories, including general fluids, process fluids, water system fluids, various oil refinery fluids, etc.
