I was hoping someone could help me out here.
Delta T refers to the difference in between your vapor temp and evaporation temp doesnt it?
Example above: (tell me if I’m wrong)
If I’m at 130 torr and my ethanol evaporates at 37c, since delta T is 30, I’d be raising the temp of my ethanol vapor to 67c correct?
The reason I’m asking about this is for pre heating, I’m trying to figure out a way to prevent boiling my ethanol in the plate pre heaters when using the hot vapor to pre heat. I think I could do this by using a plate heat exchanger to cool the vapor down into a liquid before running it though the plate pre heaters that pre heat the crude.
What do you guys think?
