Title: TRANSVERSE PRESSURE DIFFERENCE ACROSS STAGGERED AND INCLINED SPACERS IN THE ART FUEL-TO-NaK HEAT EXCHANGER

Abstract

The ART fuel-to-NaK heat exchanger was modified with six 60 staggered spacers and six 60 inclined spacers alterately placed. Transverse pressure taps were installed across one spacer of each type. The average transverse pressure difference across each instrumented spacer was expressed in terms of the ratio of the transverse pressure difference to the quantity, pu/sup 2//2g,, over the Reynolds modulus range of 3,000 to 8,O00. For the inclined spacer, this term fell between 1.4 and 1.1; for the staggered spacer, the data varied randomly between 0.01 and 0.3 with no definite trend established. The tube bundle friction factor was also determined and fell about 10% below the data previously obtained using vertical spacers. (auth)
