	%X In this work, we experimentally study heat transfer
from exhaust particulate air of detergent spray drying tower to water
by using coiled tube heat exchanger. Water flows in the coiled
tubes, where air loaded with detergent particles of 43 micrometers
in diameter flows within the shell. Four coiled tubes with different
coil pitches are used in a counter-current flow configuration. We
investigate heat transfer coefficients of inside and outside the heat
transfer surfaces through 400 experiments. The correlations between
Nusselt number and Reynolds number, Prandtl number, mass flow
rate of particulates to mass flow rate of air ratio and coiled tube
pitch parameter are proposed. The correlations procured can be used
to predicted heat transfer between tube and shell of the heat
exchanger.
