# 22 A.1 Predict of mass transfer coefficients in closed channels.

Estimate the gas phase mass transfer coefficients for water vapor evaporating into air
at 2 atm and 25 oC, and a mass flow rate of 1570 lbm/hr, in the systems that follow.
Take DAB = 0,130 cm2/s.

(a) A 6-in i.d. vertical pipe with a falling film of water on the wall. Use the following
correlation for gases in a wetted-wall column :
Shloc = 0,023 Re0,83Sc0,44 (Re > 2000)
(b) A 6-in-diameter packed bed of water saturated spheres, with a = 100 ft-1

Solution :
4𝑊
𝐷(𝑣𝜌) 𝐷( 2 ) 4 𝑊
𝑅𝑒 = = 𝜋𝐷 =
𝜇 𝜇 𝜋 𝜇𝐷
Calculate μ (viscosity of air) and v (kinematic viscosity) using reprop at 25 oC with 2
atm, we get :

## μ = 0,01846 cp = 0,0001846 g/cm.s

v = 0,07792 cm2/s

So,

1 ℎ𝑟 453,5 𝑔

𝑅𝑒 = =
𝜋 𝜇𝐷 3,14 (0,0001846 𝑔𝑟 . 𝑠)(6 𝑖𝑛 2,54 𝑐𝑚)
𝑐𝑚 1 𝑖𝑛
= 89580,26

Then,

𝑣 0,0779 𝑐𝑚2 /𝑠
𝑆𝑐 = = 0,60
𝐷𝐴𝑊 0,13 𝑐𝑚2 /𝑠

= 0,599

## It follows that the Sherwood number

So ,
𝐽𝐷 = 𝐽𝐻 = 2,19 𝑅𝑒 −2/3 + 0,78𝑅𝑒 −0,381

= 0,02749

## Calculate k using table 22.2-1 :

So,

Calculate k :

kc = 0,03868 vo

kc = 0,03868 x 458,27 𝑠

kc = 17,72 cm/s
