Heat Exchanger Design

  1. Apr 3, 2009 #1
    I have 1,935,420 lbs/hr of process fluid entering all liquid at 168F. 38,000 lbs/hr boils, and the mixture exits at 190F. Total duty is 45,500,000 BTU/hr. Is there a way to calculate the liquid specific heat and the vapor specific heat with this information?

    Sorry, no. You need more temperature measurements becuase there is no set ratio of specific heats.
