Balance de materia y energía QUIM-MS-2008 Caso Balance de materia en un equipo de acondicionamiento de aire

Problem statement Fresh air air containing containing 4.00 4.00 mole% mole% water water vapour vapour is to be cooled cooled and dehumidified to a water content of 1.70 mole% water. A stream of fresh air is combined with a recycle stream of previously dehumidified air and passed through the cooler. The blended stream entering the unit contains 2.30 mole% water. In the air conditioner some of the water in the feed is condensed and removed as liquid. A fraction of the dehumidified air leaving the cooler is recycled and the remainder is delivered to a room. Taking 25.0 mol/min of dehumidified air delivered to the room, calculate the fresh feed rate, rate of water condensation, and the rate of recycled dehumidified air.

All other systems have one/two degrees of freedom. The equations governing all the other systems, can be expressed in terms of one/ two unknown variables. The most convenient way of solving the material balance in this case is to formulate the water mole balance and the overall balance for each of the other systems:

Mixing point: Aircon unit: Splitter:

n1 + n5 = n2 0.04 ⋅ n1 + yw,5 ⋅ n5 = 0.023 ⋅ n2 n2 = n3 + n4 0.023 ⋅ n2 = n3 + yw, 4 ⋅ n4 n4 = n5 + n6

This is now a system with 5 equations/8 variables, which can be solved using the results obtained on the overall system

Evaluation of material balances - II Mixing point: n1 + n5 = n2 0.04 ⋅ n1 + yw,5 ⋅ n5

=

0.023 ⋅ n2

The mole fraction of water in stream 5 equals the mol fraction in stream 6 (physical law from point around splitter). Furthermore, from the material balance around the whole system we know the molar flow rate of stream 1: 25.6 + n5 = n2 0.04 ⋅ 25.6 + 0.017 ⋅ n5 = 0.023 ⋅ n2 mol n = 72.5 ⋅ mol 5 Solving these equations simultaneously: n2 = 98.1 ⋅ min min mol Splitter: n4 = n5 + n6 = 97.5 ⋅ min

Balance de materia y energía QUIM-MS-2008 Caso Cristalización del cromato de potasio, K2CrO4

Principle of crystallisation/precipitation Crystallisation/precipitation: Recovery of materials in solution as a solid. Governing principle: Solubility product, KSP For an ionic compound, such as K2CrO4, solubility is given by: K2CrO4(s) 2 K+ + CrO42and the solubility product is defined as: KSP

=

2

[K ] [CrO42 ] +

Often in literature solubility is given in g/100 g H2O. This is the amount of pure salt dissolved in pure water. The solubility of K2CrO4 is 62.9 g/100 g water at 20oC. Thus, 62.9 ⋅ g 1 mol 100 ⋅ g mol [K ] = 2 ⋅ 100 ⋅ g ⋅ 194.19 ⋅ g ⋅ 0.1 ⋅ litre = 6.5 ⋅ litre 3 mol mol KSP = 136 ⋅ [CrO42 ] = 3.2 ⋅ litre litre 3 +

Problem statement A solution containing 33.3 wt.-% of K2CrO4 (4500 kg/h) is to be fed to an evaporative crystallisation process. Before entering the evaporator, the fresh feed is mixed with a recycle stream containing 36.4 wt% K2CrO4. The stream leaving the evaporator, which contains 49.4 wt% K2CrO4, is fed to the crystalliser, in which the solution is cooled and crystals are formed. The filter cake removed from the crystalliser consists of K2CrO4 crystals and a solution containing 36.4 wt% K 2CrO4. The crystals account for 95% of the total mass of the filter cake. The solution passing the filter, which also contains 36.4 wt% K2CrO4, is recycled back. Calculate the rate of evaporation, the rate of production of crystalline K2CrO4, the feed rates that the evaporator and the crystallizer need to handle, and the recycle ratio. What are the benefits of recycling?
