What are Baffles?
Baffles are flow-directing or obstructing vanes or panels used to control air flow in an appliance and working alongside gas flow they maintain a consistent healthy burning flame. Baffles are an integral part of the shell and tube heat exchanger design. A baffle is designed to support tube bundles and direct the flow of fluids for maximum efficiency.
Implementation of baffles is decided on the basis of size, cost and their ability to lend support to the tube bundles and direct.Longitudinal Flow Baffles which are used in a two-pass shell. Impingement Baffles which are used for protecting bundle when entrance velocity is high, Orifice Baffles, single segmental Baffles and double Segmental Baffles.
