Question #76775

Steam with 80% quality is being used to heat a 40% total solids tomato puree as it flows through a steam injection heater at a rate of 400 kg/hr. The steam is generated at 169.06 kPa and is flowing to the heater at a rate of 50 kg/hr. Assume that the heat exchanger efficiency is 80%. If the specific 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 specific heat of the puree is not influenced by the heating process.
