Question

City water will be cooled in a heat exchanger by sea water entering at 15°C. The outlet temperature of the sea water is 20°C. City water will be recirculated to reduce water consumption. The suction line of the pump has an inner diameter of 154 mm, is 22 m long, and has two 90° bends and a hinged check valve. The pipe from the pump to the heat exchanger has an inner diameter of 127 mm, is 140 m long, and has six 90° bends. The 900 bends are all made of steel with a radius equal to the inner diameter of the pipe, R/d = 1.0. The heat exchanger has 62 tubes in parallel, each tube 6 m long. The inner diameter of the tubes is 18 mm. All pipes are made of drawn mild steel (? = 0.0445 mm). The sea water flow rate is 120 m3/h. Assume that there is one velocity head loss at the inlet and 0.5 velocity head loss at the outlet of the heat exchanger. The elevation difference is 10.5 m. Calculate: a. The total pressure drop in the system (kPa and m liquid head = H m) b. The power of the sea water pump (pump efficiency ? = 60%). Plot the pumping power as a function of the sea water flow rate (for three flow rate values: 2,000 L/min, 2,500 L/min, and 3,000 L/min).

A concentric tube heat exchanger is comprised of a stainless
steel (ks = 40 W/mK) inner pipe, NPS 2- nominal schedule
40 size (corresponding to an inner diameter of 52.5 mm and an outer
diameter of 60.3 mm), and an outer stainless steel pipe of NPS
3-nominal schedule 40 (ID = 77.9 mm, OD = 88.9 mm). The heat
exchanger has an effective length of 35 m.
The inner pipe fluid is ammonia (?a = 0.3 · 10?6

Hot water enters a counter-flow double-pipe heat exchanger at
180F with a velocity of 5 ft/s. Cold water at 80F flows at 3 ft/s
in the outer section of the exchanger. The diameter of the inner
pipe is 1 inch, the pipe wall thickness is 1/8", and the outer pipe
diameter is 2 inches. The overall heat transfer coefficient times
area per unit length UA/L = 150 Btu/hr-ft-F. If the exchanger is 16
feet long, what is the exit temperature...

A 1-shell-2-tube pass heat exchanger
is made of a steel alloy (thermal conductivity 45.4 W/(m K). It is
used to cool distilled water from 34oC to
29oC using water which flows inside tubes with an outer
diameter of 19 mm and an inner diameter of 16 mm. The number of
tubes in the shell is 160 (80 per pass). The mass flow rate of
distilled water in the shell is 76180 kg/h. The cold water enters
the heat exchanger at...

The condenser of a large steam power plant is a heat exchanger
in which steam is condensed to liquid water. Assume the condenser
to be a parallel flow shell-and-tube heat exchanger consisting of a
single shell and 10,000 tubes, each executing two passes. The tubes
are of thin wall construction with D = 30 mm and the steam
condenses on their outer surface. The heat transfer rate that must
be effected by the exchanger is Q = 2 × 10^9...

A parallel flow heat exchanger is used to transfer heat from hot
water at 80oC, flowing at 5 L/min to cold water at
15oC which is flowing at a rate of 15 L/min. The overall
heat transfer coefficient is 2000 W/m2oC and the area is
0.2m2.
Calculate the heat transfer rate, the outlet temperature of the
cold water.

Water at a flow rate of 60 kg/s enters the shell-side
of a baffled shell-and-tube heat exchanger at 35 °C and leaves at
25 °C. The heat will be transferred to 150 kg/s of raw water coming
from a supply at 15 °C. You are requested to design the heat
exchanger for this purpose. A single shell and single tube pass is
preferable. The tube diameter is ¾ in. (19 mm outer diameter with
16 mm inner diameter) and tubes...

Question 2. Answer all parts of this question a) A shell and
tube heat exchanger is to heat 10,000 kg h–1 of water from 16 to
84°C using hot oil entering at 160°C and leaving at 92°C. The oil
will flow through the shell of the heat exchanger. The water will
flow through 11 brass tubes of 22.9 mm inside diameter and 25.4 mm
outside diameter, with thermal conductivity 137 W m–1 K–1, with
each tube making two passes through...

A counter current double pipe heat exchanger is used to boil but
not superheat water at 100 DegreeC at rate of about 0.1 kg/s. This
is achieved by flowing hot oil at 400 DegreeC through the inner

exchanger?
What is the overall heat...

A particular swimming pool has one inlet and one outlet
pipe.
The diameter of the inlet pipe is 1 cm.
The diameter of the outlet pipe is 10 cm.
The average velocity of the flow in both inlet and outlet pipes
is 0.1 m/s.
The pipes are very old and rusty, so e = 0.2 mm.
