Murphy's law

To estimate the time it takes to do a task, estimate the time you think

it should take, multiply by two, and change the unit of measure to the

next higher unit. Thus allocate 2 days to do a one-hour task.

use to solve the problem.

Corollary:

calculations, and there are times when we must be precise. The

essence of engineering is to be only as complicated as you have to

be, but you must also be able to get as complicated as the problem

demands".

Packed versus Plate Tower

Packed Tower

Diameter < 4 ft

Cannot handle dispersed solids in feed

No interstage cooling

Limited operating range

not suitable for large temperature variations

cheaper to construct

design database is poor

cheaper if corrosive fluids are involved

pressure drop is smaller (good in vacuum operation)

heated or cooled

Pressure drop.

Types of Heat Exchangers

Shell and Tube

Extended surface

Coiled tube

Air-cooled

13

Selection of Tubeside fluid

Corrosive fluids

Fluid with greater fouling tendency

Fluid at higher pressure

Less viscous fluid

14

Heat Exchanger Geometry

Tube dia: 3/4 or 1 inch

Tube wall thickness: Depends on pressure

Baffle spacing: ~ shell diameter

15

Utility Selection

Chilled water 40 F

Refrigerant < 32 ( Freon, Propylene)

Dowtherm for higher temperature

Waste heat boiler ( at higher temperatures)

16

Heating Medium

Medium pressure steam 15-150 psig, 360 F

High pressure steam < 500 psig, 450 F

Dowtherm < 750 F

Fused Salt < 1100 F

Direct Fire > 450 F

17

Short cut methods for HX design

3/4 in OD tubes, 8 ft length

< 10,000 sq.ft. area per exchanger

Assume 15-20 F min approach temp.

If necessary optimize area by adjusting outlet temp of utility

Use tables and graphs for U.

Keep Q/A < 12,000 Btu/hr/sq.ft in reboilers

For coolers use max water outlet temp permissible

For air-coolers use 20 hp per 1000 sq.ft of area. Air inlet at 90 F.

Temperatue approach 40 at outlet

1. Homogenous Gas Phase

- fast reaction , 1 sec ras. Time

- strong heat effects

furnaces for endothermic

diluent for exothermic

small die for exothermic

(better heat transfer)

- Plug flow for faster reactions, high conversion

- combination may also be used

3. Hetero liquid/gas

- stirred vessels with baffles/agitation

- use gas velocity

0.2 ft/sec if gas is mostly absorbed

0.1 ft/sec if gas is 50% absorbed

0.05 ft/sec if gas is mostly not absorbed

4. Liquid/Solid

- well-stirred CSTR

- slurry reactors

5. Solid/gas

- packed types (solid not consumed)

- fluidized bed

- spouted bed
