## CONVECTION SECTION CALCULATION

Total heat loss, QL = 1.877 X 107 1.408 X 107 = 4.69 X 106 Btu/hr
Heat output by flue gas from convection, Q E = QL (2% of QT) (2% of Qex)

McGraw hill,pp 700

## = 4.15 X 106 Btu/hr

Qconvection = QR QE (2% of QR)
= 8.296X 106 Btu/hr
Heat capacity of crude oil, Cp = 0.72 Btu/lb oF
Mass flow rate of crude = 6 X 104 lb/hr
Qconvection = Mass flow rate of crude x Cp x (Tc Temperature of entering furnace)
TC = 692 0F
