Abstract

Using paradichlorobenzene in a natural convection environment, a correlation between mass and heat transfer were developed. It was determined that for a 2-nominal cylinder of paradichlorobenzene, a heat transfer coefficient of 1.570 W/m^2 K could be compared to a mass transfer coefficient of 0.00360 kg/m^2 s. For a 1.5-nominal cylinder, the heat transfer coefficient was 4.065 W/m^2 K and the mass transfer coefficient was 0.00456 kg/m^2 s. Finally, for a 1-nominal cylinder, the heat transfer coefficient of 4.645 W/m^2 K correlated with the mass transfer coefficient of 0.00295 kg/m^2 s.
