##### Chemical Engineering - pipe sizing
« on: November 20, 2012, 10:01:16 AM »
I tried the chemresources and got a moderator who wanted to CHARGE me for answering. Sooo disssapointed,
PS its really urgent, please assist.

Question is,
a heating tank ( approx 1.2m tall and 0.86m Diameter) will have a flow of 1000kg per hour of vegetable oil running through. It needs heating of 50 to 65 deg. With about 3 bar steam running through the heating coil.
What length should the coil would be sufficient? Calculation in SI units

Tell me what else info you need?

you should cal. the heat duty of this drum through energy balance , and then cal. the area of the coil according this equ.KADTM=Q,then according TO A=PI.D.L,THEN THE d and l is available.
