A new Problem
« on: October 08, 2015, 10:59:19 PM »
Hello Guys,

i am working on a problem for which I need your help. Here is the problem

There is one ice cream factory deploying a new type of ice cream.

However, this new process requires constant monitoring of the solidification process by a trained technician. This is accomplished by visual observation through a 1⁄4 thick glass porthole with a 1 diameter. The ice cream is formed on the inside surface of the porthole at -5F. Since the glass is in contact with the ice cream its cool surface causes water to condense out of the humid factory air and then freeze to the surface.
The plant owners would like to implement a device that keeps the porthole clear of ice for easy viewing while not introducing a large energy load on the machine. I would like to Prepare a simple description of solution concept. Remember, the internal ice cream process must be visually monitored.

Simple. You need whatthey use on freezer glass doors. They are usually double pane, lack atmosphere in between the panes, and use a warming strip to keep the glass from condensing.
