• Networks featuring minimum utility usage are called MAXIMUM ENERGY RECOVERY (MER) Networks.
DIVISION AT THE PINCH
RECALL THAT • No heat is transferred through the pinch. • This makes the region above the pinch a HEAT SINK region and the region below the pinch a HEAT SOURCE region.
Heat is obtained from the heating utility

• Heat exchangers will not contain heat transfer across the pinch.CONCLUSION • One can analyze the two systems separately. that is. .
in Tp TC.PINCH MATCHES • Consider two streams above the pinch TH.out= Tp.in> TC.in= Tp+Q/FCpH But TH.∆Tmin FCpH < FCpC Golden rule for pinch matches above the pinch. ∆Tmin ∆Tmin Violation when FCpH > FCpC . Q/FCpH > Q/FCpC Thus replacing one obtains TC.out+ ∆Tmin.out Q Tp.∆Tmin + Q/FCpC TH.
EXERCISE • A similar rule is obtained below the pinch. . Derive it and illustrate it.
Thus replacing one obtains Tp.ANSWER Tp TH.in= Tp.out= Tp-Q/FCpH But TH.Q/FCpC TH.in FCpC < FCpH Golden rule for pinch matches below the pinch.out> TC. ∆Tmin ∆Tmin Violation when FCpC > FCpH .∆Tmin Q TC.∆Tmin .out TC.in + ∆Tmin.
our first design rule: START BY MAKING PINCH MATCHES . Thus. one should start locating these matches first.CONCLUSION • Since matches at the pinch need to satisfy these rules.
QUESTION • Once a match has been selected how much heat should be exchanged? .
ANSWER • As much as possible! • This means that one of the streams has its duty satisfied!! THIS IS CALLLED THE TICK-OFF RULE .

DISCUSSION • State what are your objections to the pinch design method. so far!! .
THESE ARE MINE • It seems to imply building expertise • It does not seem to guarantee that one will always obtain a good result. • What if there are unequal number of streams at the pinch? • What if the inequalities are not satisfied at the pinch? .
GENERAL FORMULA FOR UNIT TARGETING Nmin= (S-P)above pinch+ (S-P)below pinch If we do not consider two separate problems. above and below the pinch we can get misleading results. .

2 FCp=0.4 150 OC 140 OC 130 OC 100 OC Target=170 OC Target=140 OC 127. then no pinch matches are possible. FCp=0.25 FCp=0.5 10 C2 Assume the matches H1-C1 and the matches H2-C2 have been selected. What is then.15 FCp=0. if the number of hot streams is larger than the number of cold streams.UNEQUAL NUMBER OF STREAMS AT THE PINCH Indeed.5 OC 122.5 OC 90 OC C1 7.1 H1 H2 H3 FCp=0. the solution? . Since H3 needs to go to the pinch temperature. Such matching would be infeasible. even if there is portions of C1 or C2 that are left for matching. there is no cold stream left to match.
