The heat transfer cooling of a hot liquid in a stirred vessel has been studied experimentally with coolant flowing through a half-coil around the vessel. Correlations have been developed for the heat transfer coefficient of the half coil jacket. A mathematical model for the half coil jacket liquid temperature dynamics and its analytical solution is used to find the shell side temperature profile as a function of time. It is found that the model predictions are in satisfactory agreement with the experimental data and that the developed correlation is superior to previously published correlations for similar systems.
