Experimental Examination Of Booster Heating Coil In Foodstuff Display Cabinet

[Full Text]



P. Navaneethakrishnan, Pss.Srinivasan



Display cabinet, Heat transfer, booster heating coil, Guide plate.



Display cabinets are one, which is used to keep the foodstuffs in warm condition. The foodstuffs are kept in warm conditions by the surrounding hot air. The air got heat from the electric heating coils. The heating coils use the electric power to produce the heat. There are some problems with heat distribution between the different foodstuffs. This problem is caused by many parameters. Out of that heating coil, booster heating coil and guide plate are the critical parameters. An experimental investigation is carried out to find the effect of the heating coil and guide plate. From the experimental analysis, the optimum location of the booster heating coil and guide plates are found out. It is identified that the guide plate at bottom and middle with booster coil gives the minimum temperature variation and minimum energy consumption.
