###### Question: (12). An evaporator is fed with 10000 kg/hr of a solution containing 1% solute by weight. It is to be concentrated to 1.5% solute by weight. The feed is at a temperature of 37°C. The water is evaporated by heating with steam available at a pressure of 1.34 atm absolute, corresponding to a temperature of 108.3°C. The operating pressure in the vapor space is 1 atm absolute. Boiling point elevation and other effects can be neglected. The condensate leaves at the condensing temperature. All the physical properties of the solution may be taken to be same as that of water. What is the quantity of steam required per hour? Calculate the economy & heating surface area required. (3+2+2=7 Marks) Data: Enthalpy of feed = 38.1 kcal/kg Enthalpy of solution inside the evaporator (at 100°C)= 98 kcal/kg Enthalpy of vapor at 100°C = 644 kcal/kg Latent heat of vaporization of steam = 540 kcal/kg
