ABSTRACT

An equipment design project was carried out to design an inverter (Bioreator) or the production of 100,00 metric tones per year of ethanol from sugar cane.
An inverter is a part of process equipment used in ethanol production from sugar cane.  While the rest process equipment include crusher, filter, centrifuge, fermented, distribution column and dehydrator.
Having based on design on a steady –stated operation, the required feed rate and enthalpy in the inverter, calculated from material and energy balance are as follows:
 Feed rate required; (Input) 
 Sugar  = 70.766kmol/hr
 Water  = 13814.95kmol/hr
 Invertabe = 106.149kmol/hr.
 Output Stream;
 Sugar = 141.531kmol/hr
 Water  =13744.18kmol/hr
 The Energy required = 17379.16mj/hr
The required design data for the inverter is summarized as shown below;
Volume of inverter required  = 910.969m/hr
Diameter of inverter required = 8.31m
Height of inverter required = 16.62m
Type of Agitator required  = Turbine agitator 
Liquid depth     = 14.603m
Baffle plate width   = 0.83m
Speed of Agitator    = 0
Diameter of Agitator  = 4.16m
Power required for ungassed = 506 x 106watts
Power required for gassed = 5.182 x 106watts
Design Pressure   = 1.1atms
Design Temperature   = 400C
Permissible Stress   = 165N/M
Wall thickness of inverter  = 6.55mm
Commission Allowance   = 3.0
Number of Impeller   = 2
The detail information on the above datas can be traced on Appendix A, B. F and G.
The success of this design project came as a result of collective efforts of some group members, although little difficulties were encountered.
