Its not a homework problem Its a project for a chocolate industry and really need to calculate this load.

### RE: need to calculate the load for a co

Good luck finding someone to do your job. In general, we don't do that. If you do the work and post it and ask specific questions on parts of it, not the whole thing, you have a good chance of getting some good feedback and critique.

Good Luck,

" Its a project for a chocolate industry and really need to calculate this load."

Try working something out yourself and then post the results
Ask someone where you work how to do it
Pay an experienced engineer to calculate it

I can't work out what your current system is?.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

### RE: need to calculate the load for a co

Have you searched and researched old threads on the site for “cooling tunnel”?

Good Luck,

### RE: need to calculate the load for a co

Presumably you are a mechanical engineer, so, it should be a straight forward problem for you if you had stayed awake during your thermodynamics and heat transfer courses.

I was searching for things and found out about this forum. Issue have been solved days back. I don't know how things work here. Thanks for co operation. No need anymore.
