This research work presents experimental investigation of condensation heat transfer characteristic of steam flowing inside the helical coil with cooling water flowing in shell in counter direction. The experiments were performed using steam saturation temperature ranging from 103 – 115 Degree Celsius and pressure 0.2 – 1 bar gauge. The experiments were performed with cooling water flow rate 3 ℓ/min and 8 ℓ/min. The effect of mass flux, heat flux and heat transfer coefficient for three different curvature ratio of stainless steel helical coil have been investigated. It is concluded that the experimental results of the helical coil are more superior to straight tube.
