2 There is a requirement to cool 160,000 Kg/hr of a ethanol from 70°C to 30°C. Cooling water will be used for cooling, with inlet and outlet temperature of 20°C and 60°C. Design a gasketed-plate heat exchanger for this duty with stainless steel(k=15 W/mK) Plates of 0.5mm thick. Maximum operating pressure and allowable pressure for both fluids is 2 bar and 0.6 bar respectively and maximum permissible velocity is 3 m/s. Show one iteration of design calculation including thermal and hydrodynamic and if design is not satisfactory in lirst iteration then comment on the calculations?

5 A shell and tube heat exchanger has the following configration:
The shell side fluid is a hot water (mass flow = 7500 kg/hr) with the following properties:

  Specific heat, kcal/Kg.K   4.3706
  Thermal conductivity, W/m.K   0.5787
  Viscosity, cP   0.3307
  Specific gravity   0.9673

Using Bell-Delaware method, calculate the shell side heat transfer coefficient for following data.
  Number of tubes   34
  Shell Inner Diameter   279.401 mm
  Bundle diameter   254.88 mm
  Tube outer diameter   25.4 mm
  Sealine strips   None
  Pitch 1.25Δ   31.75 mm
  No. of baffles   35
  Baffle spacing (centre to centre)   75 mm
  Baffle cut   24.48%
