Figure 26. Grid Diagram for H2 matching with cold utility below the pinch
Now after we completed the network above the pinch we go below the pinch. In this
simple example we have only one hot steam H2 below the pinch. The hot stream H2 needs to
be cooled down from 310 ºC to 300 ºC. The amount of load needed to be removed from this
stream is equal to 50 kW. Therfore the amount of cooling utility required using cooler will be
50 kW, which is exactly the cooling utility target obtained earlier during the utilities targeting
step. Combining the design above the pinch and below the pinch gives us the complete design
of the heat exchanger network that satisfy our two objectives of minmum number of units and
minimum utitilties consumption at T_min equal to 10 ºC.                              Search WWH ::
