14. Basic Theory of Pinch Thermodynamics of Clean Production

15. A heat recovery problem • Consider a system with two hot streams to be cooled and two cold streams to be heated. To obey the Second Law, thermal energy transfer is limited by the temperature difference. Assume that there must be a 5 K difference in temperature for heat to be efficiently transferred. What are the minimum heating and cooling that must be supplied from external utilities (i.e.: high pressure steam and cooling water? Thermodynamics of Clean Production

16. Simple heat balance • Heat supplied • due to H1 = 1000*(250-120) = 130,000 • due to H2 = 4000*(200-100) = 400,000 • total = 530,000 • Heat demand • due to C1 = 3000*(150-90) = 180,000 • due to C2 = 6000*(190-130)= 360,000 • total = 540,000 • Constraint due to second law has not been considered: heat must be transferred from high to low temperature Thermodynamics of Clean Production

17. Heat exchanger Tho Thi Tco Tci • The smaller DT is, the less is the heat recovered, and the less is heat exchange area required. This leads to decrease in capital cost but increase in utility used • A rule of thumb is to let DTmin = 5 K Thermodynamics of Clean Production

27. Pinch in Separation Thermodynamics of Clean Production

28. Gas treating • The theory of pinch can be extended to design a separation network, one such application is in the removal of hydrogen sulfide from coke oven gas • El-Halwagi and Manousiouthakis, AICHE J. 1989m v.35, p.1233-1244 • The basic process is shown in the following diagram Thermodynamics of Clean Production

29. Utility and process resource • Specifications • Ammonia is available at 2.3 kg/s as a byproduct of the process • Chilled methanol is available as a external mass separating agent • Henry’s law of hydrogen sulfide in ammonia and methanol are 1.45 and 0.26 respectively • Targets for cleaning and inlet conditions of solvent are as follows: • What is the minimum amount of methanol required Thermodynamics of Clean Production

30. Saturation Targets • Due to mass transfer limit • since ammonia is responsible for cleaning the bulk gas, therefore its saturation target cannot be greater than the equilibrium composition of the richest inlet composition 0.070/1.45=0.0483 • since inlet ammonia contains 0.0006 H2S, the cleanest target it can achieve is greater than 0.0006*1.45=0.00087 • What is the minimum extra capacity of ammonia that is left • What is the maximum amount of methanol required Thermodynamics of Clean Production

31. Composition levels Thermodynamics of Clean Production

32. Composition cascade • Extra ammonia capacity = 2.3-0.04242/(0.0483-0.0006)=1.41 • Maximum methanol needed = 0.00059/(0.0001/0.26-0.0000) =1.53 Thermodynamics of Clean Production

36. Summary • Pinch targeting is the estimation of minimum resource required for accomplishing a task, thus identifying wasteful processes • Pinch analysis also provide guidelines of good design practice • Although pinch targeting and analysis do not provide actual solutions of the design problem, they are still very helpful in reducing energy and other resource usages.

39. Basic Rankine Cycle Boiler Turbine Pump Condenser • Most traditional power plants employed a standard Rankine cycle, the process flow diagram of which is shown below. • Typical operating conditions are as follows • The working fluid is water • The compressor and pump operate adiabatically and reversibly • There is no heat loss • Boiler produces saturated steam at 10 MPa • Condenser produces recycled water at 310 K and 0.1 MPa. Thermodynamics of Clean Production

40. Rankine cycle efficiency • Water at 310 K and 0.1 MPa ~ saturated water at 310 K • H=155 kJ/kG, S=0.5319 kJ/(kG K), VL=0.001007 M3/kG • Pumped to water at 10 MPa • W~VDP~0 • Boiled to saturated steam at 10 MPa • T~585.15 K; • H=2725 kJ/kG, S=5.611 kJ/(kG K), • Q=(2725-155)=2570 kJ/kG • Expanding to wet steam at 0.1 Mpa • T~373.15 K; S=5.611 kj/(kG K • SL=1.306 kJ/(kG K);SV=7.355 kJ/(kG K) : x=0.712 • HL=419 kJ/kG;HV=2676 kJ/kG: H=2025 kJ/kG • W=2725-2025 kJ/kG = 700 kJ/kG • Cooling to 310 K • Q=2025-155=1870 kJ/kG • Efficiency • 700/2570x100%=27% Thermodynamics of Clean Production

42. Rankine Cycle vs Carnot Cycle • To provide heat for the boiler, a fuel is burned and produces a flue gas at 1000 K. To cool the low pressure steam in the condenser, the cooling water is available at 300 K. • Carnot efficiency between 1000 and 300 K is 70% • Area outside the black-lined region but inside the red box is the lost work, thermo-efficiency is 39% Thermodynamics of Clean Production

43. Improving the Rankine Cycle • It is well known that the efficiency of Rnakine cycle can be improved by superheating and waste heat preheating Thermodynamics of Clean Production
