N1 Heat Transfer in Regenerators

Abstract

The term “regenerator” denotes a heat transfer device which comprises a packing through which two different gases are alternately passed. The amount of heat to be transferred is temporarily stored in this heat-storing packing through which the gas stream is directed, and which is also variously referred to as the regenerator’s checker (work), matrix, grating, bed, heat store, or storage mass. The regenerative heat transfer involves locally non-steady-state subprocesses which are generally referred to as “heating” or “cooling.” Depending on the viewpoint, these terms apply either to the storage mass or to the different gas flows Deceased .
