Estimating the time needed for a vaporization operation in a batch reactor means dealing with a heat transfer area that decreases with time. Tricky? Not so with the equations presented in this course.
The clear step-by-step approach presented in this course walks the student from basic concepts through the derivations of simple equations that estimate the vaporization times for using steam or a heat transfer fluid (HTF) as the heating utility. Assumptions and limitations are carefully explained for qualifying the calculations. A suggested spreadsheet format presents a stand-alone display of the underlying data and of the calculated results.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
