18 Error Analysis

19 Propagation of Error Determine the accuracy of measured variables Determine the accuracy of measured variables Apply the propagation of error equation to each function Apply the propagation of error equation to each function

20 Variable Measurement Accuracy Flow rate of the steam +/- 5 lb/hr Flow rate of the steam +/- 5 lb/hr Flow rate of the cooling water +/- 50 lb/hr Flow rate of the cooling water +/- 50 lb/hr Temperature readings +/- 2 °F Temperature readings +/- 2 °F Largest sources of error Largest sources of error –Mass flow rate of the steam –Mass flow rate of the cooling water

21 Calculated Error Values ∆Q TS ≈ +/- 1,000 btu/hr ∆Q TS ≈ +/- 1,000 btu/hr ∆Q SS ≈ +/- 50,000 btu/hr ∆Q SS ≈ +/- 50,000 btu/hr ∆U o ≈ +/- 4 btu/lb °F hr ∆U o ≈ +/- 4 btu/lb °F hr ∆U i ≈ +/- 4 to +/- 1.6 btu/lb °F hr ∆U i ≈ +/- 4 to +/- 1.6 btu/lb °F hr

22 Propagation of Error Heat Transfer

23 Propagation of Error Heat Transfer Coefficient

24 Conclusions and Recommendations

25 Conclusions Q TS, Q SS, U o all increase as the steam flow rate increases Q TS, Q SS, U o all increase as the steam flow rate increases Q TS, Q SS, U o all have a linear relationship with the mass flow rate of the steam Q TS, Q SS, U o all have a linear relationship with the mass flow rate of the steam Heat transfer rate of the tube side is equal to the heat transfer rate of the shell side Heat transfer rate of the tube side is equal to the heat transfer rate of the shell side

26 Recommendations Operation Recommendation Operation Recommendation –Operate the shell and tube heat exchanger at approximately 75% for sufficient heat transfer and economic efficiency Experiment Recommendations Experiment Recommendations –Monitor pressure gauge (PG-07) at low steam rates to prevent a vacuum
