Simulation of a plate heat exchanger used to cool a sucrose solution

This example shows a two-fluid plate heat exchanger used to cool a solution of sucrose (60° Brix) with water. This counter-current heat exchanger has two passes on both sides. Each pass is counter-current. Pure sucrose component is modified to represent the thermal and transport properties of the sucrose solution (60° Brix).
This heat exchanger is modeled using ProSim PHE, ProSim’s CAPE-OPEN unit operation dedicated to the simulation of plate heat exchangers. ProSim PHE can take into account the effect of the stacking and of the pressure drop on the enthalpy curves. In this example, the ProSim PHE unit operation runs inside the ProSimPlus environment, i.e., within the ProSimPlus simulation software where the thermodynamic and physico-chemical data needed are automatically calculated using Simulis Thermodynamics, the thermodynamic calculation server of ProSimPlus.
