The present study reports the experimental validation of thermohydraulic modeling for prediction of pressure drop and heat transfer coefficient. Experiments were performed on plate heat exchanger using chilled water and ice slurry as secondary fluids. Propylene glycol (PG) and mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) are used as depressants (10%, 20%, 30%, and 40% concentration) in ice slurry formation. The results show that thermohydraulic modeling predicts the pressure drop and overall heat transfer coefficient for water to water and water to ice slurry within the discrepancy limit of ±15%.
