Xfh Ultra Workshop

Course Fee: US$450

This workshop is an introduction to modeling the performance of process fired heaters using Xfh Ultra. Starting with a brief review of fundamental concepts, attendees will then use an API 560 Specification Sheet of a proposed fired heater design to develop a complete fired heater model in Xfh Ultra and rate the heater’s performance.

Key Topics

  • Process fired heater fundamentals
  • Xfh Ultra capabilities and applications
  • Heuristic approach to model development in Xfh Ultra
  • Fluid definitions, process specification, and geometry inputs
  • Practical guidelines for interpreting Xfh Ultra output reports and measures of performance

Suggested Participants
