A calandria (another term for a thermosyphon reboiler) is used to vaporize 5000 kg/hr chlorobenzene (1 atm pressure, 131ºC) using 65 psia saturated steam. The heat of vaporization of chlorobenzene is 324.6 J/g. Use Table 13.2 to estimate the overall heat transfer coefficient. a) calculate the heat exchanger surface area required (m2) and b) determine the mass flow rate of steam required (kg/hr).
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it deals with calculation of surface required for a heat exchanger and to determine the mass flow rate of steam required. The solution has the calculations in detail.
