In a food processing company where milk is the key ingredient, as a part of many processes, milk is heated. The temperature needs to be accurately regulated to provide the downstream unit operations with milk at the expected temperature and consistency.Rather than running time consuming and expensive equipment, a model of heat exchanger and the control loop using software can be designed and manufactured.This process, however, demands an accurate model that takes into account the temperature dynamics across the entire length of the counter current heat exchanger, so that the controller can be tuned. In this paper, A Double Pipe heat exchanger will be designed using CFD model and validated using experimental setup. Next a control loop using MATLAB (R2011a) will be designed to control the valve for achieving required temperature.
