Chapter 4 Transient Heat Conduction4-102E Chickens are to be frozen by refrigerated air. The cooling time of the chicken is to be determined for the cases of cooling air being at –40°F and -80°F. Assumptions1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The thermal properties of chickens are constant. Analysis The time required to reduce the inner surface temperature of the chickens from 32ºF to 25ºF with refrigerated air at -40ºF is determined from Fig. 4-44 to be t≅2.3 hoursAir -40°C Chicken 6 lbm 32°FIf the air temperature were -80ºF, the freezing time would be t≅1.4 hours Therefore, the time required to cool the chickens to 25°F is reduced considerably when the refrigerated air temperature is decreased. 4-103Chickens are to be cooled by chilled water in an immersion chiller. The rate of heat removal from the chicken and the mass flow rate of water are to be determined. Assumptions1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The thermal properties of chickens are constant.
