To simplify numerical simulation while and keep the basic characteristics of the process, following assumptions are made: (1) constant thermal properties are maintained for the shell-side fluid; (2) the heat transfer processes and fluid flow are in steady-state and turbulent; (3) the leak flows between baffle and tube and that between baffle and the shell are neglected; (4) Neglect the natural convection induced by the fluid density variation.; (5) the constant tube wall temperatures are kept in the whole shell side; (6) the whole heat exchanger is well-insulated hence the heat loss to the environment is totally neglected.

Numerical analysis of the basin with baffle was carried out using the CFD package Ansys Fluent.
The unique angled design of the baffles allows them to be nested in the Zero-U space between VP2 cabinets to support both side intake and venting between adjacent cabinets.
The design protects users by drawing room air into the front of the enclosure, sweeping the cabinet interior, pulling the air to the back through the baffle, and filtering the air through a 99.999% bag-in/bag-out ULPA filter before returning the clean air to the laboratory.
