Sample text

The sum of all these is the total energy of the system. The total energy of the system remains constant when one sort of energy is transformed to another type. Reaction heat I should have added that into the above list. If a chemical reaction such as burning wood liberates heat, it is called an exothermic reaction. Thermal cracking of hydrocarbons absorbs heat. That’s an endothermic reaction. Water hammer If I hammer a nail into a brick wall, the nail gets very hot. This is an example of converting the momentum of the hammer into sensible heat of the nail.

I really liked her. But she dumped me. Gloria told her mother that I was just another nerd. What was it about the Coke that removed the iron deposits from our sink? It was carbonic acid (H2CO3). ) Carbonic acid is formed when CO2 dissolves under pressure in water. The resulting acid has a 5 to 6 pH, even at relatively high acidic concentrations. The acid readily dissolves iron to form water-soluble iron carbonate, Fe(HCO3). This is a problem in process plant steam heaters. There are always some residual carbonates in boiler feed water.

Never unscrew the thermowell from a vessel that’s in service. Kettle reboiler Also called a gravity feed reboiler. It has only a vapor outlet nozzle venting back to the tower. Bridle Same as level-trol or stand-pipe. Used to measure liquid levels in a process vessel. Vortex breaker Located in draw-off nozzle sumps, or on the liquid outlet of the bottom of a vessel. Not required for low nozzle outlet velocities. Nozzle Connections on the side of vessels and heat exchangers. Nozzles come in standard sizes corresponding to standard pipe diameters.
