Cle7 Steam Requirement

It is desired to evaporate lOOOlb/h of 60° F water at 1 atm at a power plant. Utility superheated steam at 40 atm and 1000°F is available, but since this stream is to be used elsewhere in the plant, it cannot drop below 20 atm and 600°F. What mass


flowrate of the utility steam is required? Assume that there is no heat loss in the evaporator.

From the steam tables:

For saturated steam:

For saturated water:

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
