Fall 2004 ICE Topics: Process Control by Design 10.492 Problem Set 6: calculating the HX network base case For this problem set, each student should submit individual work. Here’s the network: W 1 T 6 T 5 T 4 T 1 T 9 T 7 E101 E102 E103 1 1 9 7 E101 E102 T 8 W 2 T 2 W 3 T 3 2 K These are all unspecified organic liquid streams. Let all the heat capacities be simply 2500 J kg -1 -1 , all the heat transfer coefficients 250 W m -2 K -1 , and all the heat exchangers 117 m 2 . The inlet streams are W1: 8.0 kg s -1 , 248°C W2: 9.0 kg s -1 , 138°C W3: 5.5 kg s -1 , 102°C (1) Calculate the unknown temperatures and heat duties at steady-state. (2) Imagine that you are employed in a process engineering group. You and your colleagues
