    (B) 1
    (C) < 0

    (C) Lower static submergence
    (D) Small downcomer liquid seal

7. Large process vessels operating under extreme temperature and pressure conditions are normally clad/ lined with materials like stainless steel, aluminium, nickel & its alloys, copper & its alloys and titanium. The cladding thickness is generally about __________ percent of the total thickness.

8. Pick out the wrong statement pertaining to shell and tube heat exchanger.
    (A) Clearance between shell & baffles and between tube & baffles should be minimum to avoid by-passing of the fluid, but it should be enough to permit the removal of tube bundle
    (B) Baffles are supported independently of the tubes by tie rods and positioned by spacers
    (C) Tie rods are fixed at one end in the tube sheet by making blind holes and the minimum number of tie rods is 4 with at least 10 mm diameter
    (D) Bracket supports are used for horizontal shell, while saddle support is used for vertical shell

9. Pick out the wrong statement pertaining to the design of a horizontal tube evaporator.
    (A) It is unsuitable for concentrating those liquids, which form a scale or deposit salt
    (B) It is suitable for process, in which the final product is a liquor instead of solid
    (C) Its usual dimensions are: tube dia = 2-3 cms; evaporator body dia = 1-4 meters and evaporator height = 2.5-4 meters
    (D) Liquor flows inside the tube, while the steam is outside submerging the tube

10. In case of plain carbon steel, butt welded joints are used for shell plate thickness ≤ __________ cms.

    (B) Ratio of LMTD to the true temperature difference
    (C) Differenced of true temperature difference and the LMTD
    (D) Geometric mean of the true temperature difference and the LMTD
