Question: a feed of 4535 kgh of a 20 wt salt...

Question details

A feed of 4535 kg/h of a 2.0 wt% salt solution at 311 K enters continuously a single-effect evaporator and is being concentrated to 3.0%. The evaporation is at atmospheric pressure and the area of the evaporator is 69.7 m2. Saturated steam at 383.2 K is supplied for heating. Since the solution is dilute, it can be assumed to have the same oiling point as water. The heat capacity of the feed can be taken as cp=4.10 kJ/kg×K. Calculate the amounts of vapor and liquid product and the overall heat-transfer coefficient U.
