- The purposes of this research was to investigate and analyze the effect of fluid flow variation to the performances of tube and fins radiator type. The research was done experimentally to analyze the heat transfer rate and the effectiveness of the radiator. The experiment research was carried out in a simulation system of dryer consist of reservoir water tank, a heater, pump to circulate hot water to the radiator and a cooling fan. The hot water mass flow rate was varying at 0.09 kg/s and 0.18 kg/s, and the cooling air velocity at a constant rate in 1 m/s. From the result, showed that the air side temperature of radiator were tends to decrease over time. This was in line to the exhaust heat transfer rate from the radiator, where they also tend to decrease over time for both water flow rate variation. The average heat transfer rate was higher with the higher water flow rate, which were around 3971.65 Watt. The effectiveness of the radiator (ɛ) over time tends to increase with an average of ɛ = 0.34 for hot water mas flow rate 0.09 kg/s, and average ɛ = 0.43 for the mass flow rate 0.18 kg/s. The maximum effectiveness value for both mass flow rate variations were obtained at 30 minutes which is 0.32 and 0.45.
