Flow of Fluids

Aniline is to be cooled from 200 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit in a double-pipe heat exchanger having a total outside are
For cooling a stream of toluene amounting to 8600 lb/h at a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit is available.
The exchanger consists of Schedule 40 ,1 and ¼ inches pipe and Schedule 40,2-inches pipe. The aniline flow rate is10
if flow is countercurrent, what are the toluene outlet temperature, the LMTD and the overall heat transfer coefficient?
Cp of Aniline=0.545 BTU/lb-°F and Cp for toluene= 0.438 BTU/lb-°F.

Solution: Aniline:
q= mCP(T1-T2)
