# Final Laboratory Experiment

Evaporation
1. Objective:
The activity aims to solve problems involving material and energy balances of unit operations such as
evaporation.
2. Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs):
The students shall be able to:
2.1 Solve Material Balance Equation regarding Evaporation using MATLAB.
2.2 Solve Energy Balance Equation regarding Evaporation using MATLAB.
3. Discussion:
An important instance of heat transfer occurs quite often in the process industries and is given the
general name evaporation. In the evaporation, the vapor from a boiling liquid solution is removed and a
more concentrated solution remains. In the majority of cases the separation process called evaporation is
refers to the removal of water from an aqueous solution
Typical examples of evaporation are concentration of aqueous solutions of sugar, sodium chloride,
sodium hydroxide, glycerol, glue, milk and orange juice. In these cases, the concentrated solution is the
desired product and the evaporated water is normally discarded. In a few cases, water, which contains a
small amount of minerals, is evaporated to give solids-free water to be used as boiler feed, for special
chemical purposes, or for other purposes. Evaporation processes to evaporate seawater to provide
drinking water have been developed and used.
A simplified diagram of a single-stage or single effect evaporator is given in figure 1. The feed enters at T F,
K and saturated steam at Ts enters the heat exchange section. Condensed steam leaves as condensate
or drips. Since the solution in the evaporator is assumed to be completely mixed, the concentrated product
and the solution in the evaporator have the same composition and temperature T 1, which is the boiling
point of the solution.

## Figure 1. Simplified diagram of single effect evaporator

The concept of an overall heat transfer coefficient is used in the calculation of the rate of heat transfer in
an evaporator. The general equation can be written as,
q=UA T =UA (T sT 1)

Where q is the rate of heat transfer in W(btu/hr), U is the overall heat transfer coefficient in W/m 2 K, A is
the heat transfer area in m2, Ts is the temperature of the condensing steam in K and T 1 is the boiling point
of the liquid in K.

For the material balance, since we are at steady state, the rate of mass in = rate of mass out. Then, for
total mass balance,
F=L+ V

## For a balance on the solute (solids) alone,

F x F =L x L
Enthalpy Balance for the system is given as,
Q=F Cp F (T T F )+V v
