Calculate Volumetric Flow Rate Of Air And Mass Flow Rate Of Towels Entering A Dryer

Question

Wet towels at the Biltmore Hotel are dried in a continuous dryer after washing for use by hotel guests. The towels contain 45% water (by mass) when they enter the dryer and 3% water (by mass) when they exit the dryer. The slightly damp towels (3% water) exit the dryer at a rate of 850 kg/day. Hot, perfectly dry air (115°F, 1 atm) is also fed into the dryer. When the air leaves the dryer is has cooled to 100°F (1 atm still) and has a relative humidity of 55%.

a. Determine the volumetric flow rate of air (m3/day) entering the dryer.

b. Determine the mass flow rate of towels (kg/day) entering the dryer.

 

Summary

The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it discusses about calculating the volumetric flow rate of air entering and the mass flow rate of towels entering a dryer.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
