## Vessel diameter = 0.15 m

Vessel length = 5 m
Wall thickness = 0.05 m

## Properties of Glucose at 60oC:

Cp = 2.43 kJ/kg.C
= 1540 kg/m3
= 0.0043 kg/m.s

k = 0.488 W/m.K
o
Properties of water at 60.0 C: (Table A.2, J.P.Holman, 2010)
By interpolating:
Cp = 4.1862 kJ/kg.k
= 984.48 kg/m3

k = 0.6559 W/m.k

## The outlet ratio of the unit operation is glucose: water = 1: 0.

Therefore, using the properties of glucose
The density of glucose at 60 o C = 1540 kg/m3
The viscosity of glucose at 60 o C = 0.0043 kg/m.s
The specific heat capacity of glucose at 60 o C = Cp = 2.43 kJ/kg. C or 0.438 kJ/kg.k

## Tco- 298.15 K = 33.95 K

Tco = 332.1 K

Since the value (332.1 K) is approximately as the assumption value (330.00 K). Hence,
the temperature of the cold water out is 330.00 K. The heat transfer rate is 7952.7196 W.
Comparing to co-current flow heat exchanger in which = 0.70. Therefore, the
counter-current flow heat exchanger is selected because its efficiency (0.97) is higher
than the efficiency (0.70) of co-current flow heat exchanger.
