Given: Conditions in Exercises 8.28 and 8.30. Find: Column diameter. Analysis: Conditions of Exercise 8.28: Flow rate of feed/raffinate = 12,400 lb/h. Flow rate of solvent/extract = 24,000 lb/h Assume raffinate is dispersed. The following properties are given in Exercise 8.30. ρR = ρD = 63.5 lb/ft3 and ρE = ρC = 45.3 lb/ft3 µC = 1.0 cP or 0.000021 lbf-s/ft2 Interfacial tension = σI = 13.5 dyne/cm or 0.000924 lbf/ft uµ ρ Assume o C C = 0.01 σ i ∆ρ σ ∆ρ (0.000924)(63.5 − 45.3) Therefore, uo = 0.01 i = 0.01 = 0.177 ft/s µ C ρC (0.000021)(45.3) U D mD / ρ D 12,400 / 635 . = = = 0.369 The flooding correlation of Fig. 8.39 is too difficult U C mC / ρC 24,000 / 45.3 to read for low values of UD/UC . Instead, use Eqs. (8-62) and (8-59). From Eq. (8-62), with UC/UD = 1/0.369 = 2.71, (1) φ Df = 1+ 8 UC / U D 1/ 2 4 UC / U D − 1 −3 = 1 + 8 2.71 1/ 2 4 2.71 − 1 −3 = 0.257 From Eq. (8-59), using φD = (φD)f = 0.257, UD UC UD UC + = + = uo 1 − φ D = 0.177(1 − 0.257) φ D 1 − φ D 0.257 1 − 0.257 which simplifies to, 3891U D + 1346U C = 01315 . . . (2) Solving Eqs. (1) and (2) simultaneously, UC = 0.0473 ft/s and UD = 0.0175 ft/s Therefore, at flooding, (UD + UC) = 0.0175 + 0.0473 = 0.0648 ft/s Size the column for 50% of flooding. Therefore, (UD + UC) = 0.0648/2 = 0.0324 ft/s Total volumetric flow rate = Q = 12,400/63.5 + 24,000/45.3 = 725 ft3/h = 0.201 ft3/s Column cross-sectional area = AC = Q/(UD + UC) = 0.201/0.0324 = 6.2 ft2 Column diameter = DC = (4AC/π)1/2 = [4(6.2)/3.14]1/2 = 2.8 ft Exercise 8.34 (continued) Analysis: (continued) Conditions of Exercise 8.30: Flow rate of feed/raffinate = 21,000 lb/h. Flow rate of solvent/extract = 52,000 lb/h Raffinate is dispersed. The following properties are given in Exercise 8.30. ρR = ρD = 63.5 lb/ft3 and ρE = ρC = 45.3 lb/ft3 µC = 1.0 cP or 0.000021 lbf-s/ft2 Interfacial tension = σI = 13.5 dyne/cm or 0.000924...
