Steam with 80% quality is being used to heat a 40% total

solids tomato purée as it fl ows through a steam injection

heater at a rate of 400 kg/h. The steam is generated at

169.06 kPa and is fl owing to the heater at a rate of 50 kg/h. If

the specifi c heat of the product is 3.2 kJ/(kg K), determine the

temperature of the product leaving the heater when the initial

temperature is 50°C. Determine the total solids content of the

product after heating. Assume the specifi c heat of the heated

purée is 3.5 kJ/(kg°C).

A gas feed stream containing 4.03 mole % methane and balance O2 is mixed with a pure

stream of O2. The final stream composition is 2.05 mole % methane. Determine the amount

of O2 needed to dilute the feed stream.

Hint: Assuming a basis may be helpful

In the selective oxidation of isobutylene to dimethyl ketone using a MoO3/U308/SiO2 catalyst it is thought that each reactant utilizes different catalytic sites. The reaction rate is controlled by surface reaction between the two adsorbed species. Postulate a sequence of elementary steps and derive the LH rate equation; sketch the rate versus pressure of isobutylene curve assuming the 0 2 pressure is large. Compare this plot to the case where both reactants compete for the same sites.

An isothermal reversible reaction (A ↔ B) is carried out in an aqueous solution. The reaction is first-order in both directions. The forward rate constant is 1 h–1 and the equilibrium constant is 1. The feed to the plant contains 100 kg-mol/m3 of A and enters at the rate of 120 m3/h. The reactor is a stirred tank of volume 180 m3. The exit stream then goes to a separator, where the concentration of A (CA) is doubled and 30 m3/h is sent back to the CSTR in a continuous operation.

a. Find the conversion.

b. Compare this conversion with what you will get if there is no recycle.

The inside of a baking oven is at a temperature of 177degrees celcius. The wall of an oven is made up of 4mm thick stainless steel of thermal conductivity 15.5W/mk. Determine the heat conduction heat loss per unit area from the oven if outside temperature is at 27degrees celcius above room temperature

Explain the disadvantages of operating reactor isothermally and what is the impact of this disadvantage?

A pump is installed to deliver water from a reservoir of surface elevation zero to another reservoir of elevation 290 ft. The 10-in-diameter suction pipe (f = 0.022) is 90 ft long, and the 8-in-diameter discharge pipe (f = 0.028) is 4900 ft long. Minor losses are neglected.

The pump characteristic at 1100 rpm is defined by:

ha = 365 – 20 Q2 (1)

where ha, the pump head, is in feet (ft) and Q, volumetric flowrate, in cubic feet per second (ft3/s).

1. Compute graphically the flowrate and the pump head at the operation conditions.

2. Repeat the question for the case of two identical pumps in series

3. Repeat the question for the case of two identical pumps in parallel.
