Description

Reboilers are arguably the most troublesome auxiliary components in a distillation system. Reboiler failure or underperformance can lead to column malfunction and/or shutdown with severe economic consequences. In many cases, problematic operation can be identified and avoided in the design phase by correctly modeling the units in Xist, but this is contingent on the user’s ability to specify and interpret such cases. Attend this short course to practice modeling and review challenging reboiler designs in Xist through a series of interactive case studies.

Suggested Participants

Xist users who design, troubleshoot or evaluate reboiler performance

HTRI Software
