# Module 9001 Energy Balance

## Paul Ashall, 2008

Concerned with energy changes and energy flow in a chemical process. Conservation of energy first law of thermodynamics i.e. accumulation of energy in a system = energy input energy output

## Paul Ashall, 2008

Forms of energy

Potential energy (mgh) Kinetic energy (1/2 mv2) Thermal energy heat (Q) supplied to or removed from a process Work energy e.g. work done by a pump (W) to transport fluids Internal energy (U) of molecules

## m mass (kg) g gravitational constant, 9.81 ms-2 v velocity, ms-1

## Paul Ashall, 2008

IUPAC convention
- heat transferred to a system is +ve and heat transferred from a system is ve - work done on a system is+ve and work done by a system is -ve

## Paul Ashall, 2008

Uses

Heat required for a process Rate of heat removal from a process Heat transfer/design of heat exchangers Process design to determine energy requirements of a process Pump power requirements (mechanical energy balance) Pattern of energy usage in operation Process control Process design &Paul development Ashall, 2008 etc

Enthalpy balance
p.e., k.e., W terms = 0 Q = H2 H1 or Q = H

, where H2 is the total enthalpy of output streams and H1is the total enthalpy of input streams, Q is the difference in total enthalpy i.e. the enthalpy (heat) transferred to or from the system
Paul Ashall, 2008

continued
Q ve (H1>H2), heat removed from system Q +ve (H2>H1), heat supplied to system.

## Example steam boiler

Two input streams: stream 1- 120 kg/min. water, 30 deg cent., H = 125.7 kJ/kg; stream 2 175 kg/min, 65 deg cent, H= 272 kJ/kg One output stream: 295 kg/min. saturated steam(17 atm., 204 deg cent.), H = 2793.4 kJ/kg
Paul Ashall, 2008

continued
Ignore k.e. and p.e. terms relative to enthalpy changes for processes involving phase changes, chemical reactions, large temperature changes etc Q = H (enthalpy balance) Basis for calculation 1 min. Steady state Q = Hout Hin
Q = [295 x 2793.4] [(120 x 125.7) + (175 x 272)]

## Q = + 7.67 x 105 kJ/min

Enthalpy changes
Change of T at constant P Change of P at constant T Change of phase Solution Mixing Chemical reaction crystallisation

## Latent heats (phase changes)

Vapourisation (L to V) Melting (S to L) Sublimation (S to V)

## Mechanical energy balance

Consider mechanical energy terms only Application to flow of liquids P + v2 + g h +F = W 2 where W is work done on system by a pump and F is frictional energy loss in system (J/kg) P = P2 P1; v2 = v22 v12; h = h2 h1

## Bernoulli equation (F=0, W=0)

Paul Ashall, 2008

## Example - Bernoulli eqtn.

Water flows between two points 1,2. The volumetric flow rate is 20 litres/min. Point 2 is 50 m higher than point 1. The pipe internal diameters are 0.5 cm at point 1 and 1 cm at point 2. The pressure at point 2 is 1 atm.. Calculate the pressure at point 2.
Paul Ashall, 2008

continued
P/ + v2/2 + gh +F = W
P = P2 P1 (Pa) v 2 = v 22 v 12 h = h2 - h1 (m) F= frictional energy loss (mechanical energy loss to system) (J/kg) W = work done on system by pump (J/kg) = 1000 kg/m3
Paul Ashall, 2008

continued
Volumetric flow is 20/(1000.60) m3/s = 0.000333 m3/s v1 = 0.000333/((0.0025)2) = 16.97 m/s v2 = 0.000333/ ((0.005)2) = 4.24 m/s
(101325 - P1)/1000 + [(4.24)2 (16.97)2]/2 + 9.81.50 = 0 P1 = 456825 Pa (4.6 bar)

## Sensible heat/enthalpy calculations

Sensible heat heat/enthalpy that must be transferred to raise or lower the temperature of a substance or mixture of substances. Heat capacities/specific heats (solids, liquids, gases,vapours) Heat capacity/specific heat at constant P, Cp(T) = dH/dT or H = integral Cp(T)dT between limits T2 and T1 Use of mean heat capacities/specific heats over a temperature range Use of simple empirical equations to describe the variation of Cp with T
Paul Ashall, 2008

continued
e.g. Cp = a + bT + cT2 + dT3 ,where a, b, c, d are coefficients H = integralCpdT between limits T2, T1
H = [aT + bT2 + cT3 + dT4] 2 3 4 Calculate values for T = T2, T1 and subtract Note: T may be in deg cent or K - check units for Cp!
Paul Ashall, 2008

Example
Calculate the enthalpy required to heat a stream of nitrogen gas flowing at 100 mole/min., through a gas heater from 20 to 100 deg. cent. (use mean Cp value 29.1J mol-1 K-1 or Cp = 29 + 0.22 x 10-2T + 0.572 x 10-5T2 2.87 x 10-9 T3, where T is in deg cent)
