Tutorial 3 - Question 5
A flash recovery vessel is supplied by the trap draining an evaporator which works at 10 bar(g) and a
steam consumption of 1000 kg/h. The flash steam from the vessel is fed to a tank heating coil at a
pressure of 0.5 bar(g). What is:
(a) the quantity of fash steam to be expected?
(b) the quantity of residual condensate to be discharged from the flash vessel?
(c) the temperature of the condensatte leeaving the flash vessel.
