This dataset contains raw primary temperature data obtained from the three HCOHPs charged with ethanol, methanol, and deionized water respectively and tested in the laboratory using three different heat inputs. The maximum heat input element temperatures were 100°C, 125°C and 192°C, for test Run 1, 2 and 3, respectively. The temperature data were obtained from three Omega K-type thermocouples attached to each condenser and evaporator of the HCOHP respectively, two attached to the adiabatic sections, and two attached to the inner and outer surfaces of the cylindrical copper vessel for the heat transfer. The other dataset is derived from the average temperatures from the raw primary temperature data. Here, relevant equations for the determination of the heat flux, power input, thermal contact resistance and overall thermal resistance was used. The data are presented on six separate Excel files. The first three files are captioned HCOHP Primary Data – Run 1, HCOHP Primary Data – Run 2, and HCOHP Primary Data – Run 3 representing raw primary temperature data for the three HCOHPs for each test run. The second three Excel files are captioned HCOHP Derived Data – Run 1, HCOHP Derived Data – Run 2, and HCOHP Derived Data – Run 3 represent the derived data obtained from the average raw primary temperature data for each test run. In the Excel files EOHP, MOHP and WOHP represents the ethanol charged HCOHP, methanol charged HCOHP and deionized water charged HCOHP, respectively.
