HotEndDesign
ThehotenddesignoftheproblemgiveninTable5.7isshowninFig.5.34.TheCPtablewithCP
rules and number stream rules are also given to guide the design. As CP of the stream 1 is
betweenstream2andstream6asperCPrules.Thisticksoffstream6&2.Thethirdmatch,
andstream7tickingoffstream4.Aftertheabovesaidmatchingonlythecoldstreams7&8
needs heating of 4.25 kW and12 kW respectively which was supplied through heater. This
completes the hot end design of the problem as shown in Fig.5.34. It should be noted that
number of units in this design is two less that the targeted value of 8. This is due to the
presenceoftwosubsetequalityintheproblem.
