3Crystallization‰A solid – liquid separation‰Mass transfer occurs of a solute from the liquid solution to a pure solid crystalline phase.‰Solid particles formed from a homogeneous phase eg :‰Water to form ice‰Formation of snow particles from a vapor‰Formation of solid particles from a liquid melt‰Formation of solid crystals from a liquid solution

6Mass Balances in CrystallizationThe solution (mother liquor) and solid crystals are in contact for a long enough time to reach equilibrium. Hence, the mother liquor is saturated at the final temperature of the process.The yield can can be calculated using the initial concentration of solute, the final temperature and the solubility at this temperature.The crystals can be anhydrous or hydrate.Mass balance :Water balance : Input = OutputSolute balance : Input = OutputF kg Hot solutionX1kg solute/100 kg H2OC kg CrystalX2kg solute/100 kg H2OS kg solutionkg H2O evaporate
7Heat Balance in Crystallization‰Heat of Solution – absorption heat; when a compound whose solubility increases as temperature increases dissolves‰In crystallization the opposite of dissolution occurs. At equilibrium the heat of crystallization is equal to the negative of the heat of solution at the same concentration in solution.‰The most satisfactory method of calculating heat effects during a crystallization process is to use the enthalpy-concentration chat. However only a few charts are available.TcH2O, Tc, HvHot solutionTf, H1Solute/solventTc, H3Total Heat RemovedQ = (H2+ H3+ Hv) – H1Crystal, Tc, H2

9A saturated solution containing 400 kg of KCl at 360 K is cooled to 290 K in an open tank. The solubility of KCl at 360 K and 290 K are 43.55 kg KCl/100 kg H2O and 34.5 kg KCl/100 kg H2O, respectively. The specific gravity of the solution is 1.17. Calculate‰Volume of the tank (in m3).‰Amount of crystals formed if 22% of the total water is vaporized.
10A saturated solution containing 1500 kg of MgSO4 at 550 K is cooled to 293 K in an open tank. The cooling process will crystallize the salt as decahydrate, (MgSO4.10H20) and then be separated from the tank. If the solubility at 550 K is 35.5 kg MgSO4/100 kg H2O and at 293 K is 21.5 kg MgSO4/100 kg H2O, calculate the weight of crystals formed if only 5% of the total water is lost by evaporation during cooling process.If the crystallization process was conducted in a closed tank but not insulated, calculate the heat lost to the surrounding if:Average heat capacity of feed = 2.85 kJ/kg.KHeat of solution = – 13.3 x 103kJ/kgmolMgSO4.10H2O Latent heat of vaporization (H20, 293K)=2453 kJ/kgMolecular weight: Mg 24; S 32; O 16; H 1.

On cooling, 10 % of the original water present evaporates. For a feed solution of 100 kg total, calculate :a)The yield of crystals if the solution is cooled to 290 K, where the solubility is 8.6 kg Ba(NO3)2/100 kg total water.b)The yield if cooled instead to 283 K, where the solubility is 7.0 kg Ba(NO3)2/100 kg total water.2.A batch of 100 KCl is dissolved in sufficient water to make a saturated at 363 K, where the solubility is 35 wt. % KCl in water. The solution is cooled to 293 K, at which temperature its solubility is 25.4 wt. %.a)What is the weight of water required for solution and the weight of crystals of KCl obtained?b)What is the weight of crystals obtained if 5 wt. % of the original water evaporates on cooling?3.A hot solution containing 100 kg of MgSO4and water having a concentration of 30 wt% MgSO4is cooled to 288.8 K, where crystals of MgSO4.7H2O are precipitated. The solubility at 288.8 K is 24.5 wt% anhydrous MgSO4in the solution. Calculate the yield of crystals obtained if 5 % of the original water in the system evaporates on cooling.

The solubility of the salt is 35.5 kg MgSO4/100 kg total water. The average heat capacity of the feed solution can be assumed as 2.93 kJ/kg.K. The heat of solution at 291.2 K (18 oC) is – 13.3 x 103 kJ/kg mol MgSO4.7H2O. Calculate the yield of crystals and make a heat balance to determine the total heat absorbed, q, assuming that no water is vaporized.5.A feed solution of 10 000 lbmat 130 oF containing 47.0 lb FeSO4/100 lb total water is cooled to 80 oF, where FeSO4.7H2O crystals are removed.
