The operation analysis of high-performance heat exchanger with tubes elliptical indicated that the heat exchangers can be subject to damage. The reason for this is probably improper distribution of working fluid in tubular space of heat exchanger. Therefore, a part of the tubes may be improperly cooled and subject to compressible stresses. The paper presents an experimental stand allowing to confirm the given assumption. The experimental investigation enables to examine the mass flow rate in heat exchanger tubes. Also, it is possible to assess the impact of the construction of inlet, intermediate and outlet chambers on the flow distribution within the heat exchanger tubes.
