Tutorial EKC 316 Separation Process

Topic: Humidification/Dehumidification

Problem 1:
Moist warm air is to be cooled and dehumidified to a wet-bulb temperature of 30C
using water of 25C in a dehumidification column. The air enters the tower with a drybulb temperature of 85C and wet-bulb temperature of 45C at 4800 kg/m2h rate. The
overall gas phase mass transfer coefficient is estimated to be 2150 kg/ m 3h. The flow
rate of water is 1.4 times the minimum. Calculate height of the tower.
