Abstract

This paper presents a graphical technique for optimum design of heat exchanger networks (HENs) by applying the pinch analysis rules. The new contribution of this graphical approach is to include the driving force of temperatures and their variations throughout the design in the graphical representations. This would allow the consideration of both heat transfer area and energy during the design/analysis. The graphical approach is applied on a case study of low temperature distillation process.
