Beyond the Basics: Specifying Critical Pressure in Xchanger Suite Webinar

July 29, 2021 | 8:30 AM CDT (UTC -05:00)

The critical pressure is a fundamental parameter in many HTRI correlations associated with boiling processes. But do you know enough about it? Do you know

  • what "critical pressure" is?
  • how to specify it in Xchanger Suite?
  • which correlations it affects?
  • how the pseudo critical and true critical pressure of a mixture differ?
  • how this difference can affect the accuracy of HTRI thermal predictions?

Be sure to join this webinar for answers to questions like these.

Registration deadline: July 27, 2021 (11:59 PM CDT)

Facilitated by Andy Mountford

Andy mountford

Senior Technical Lead, Training, provides technical support and training for HTRI. He earned a BSc and MSc in Chemistry and a PhD in Organometallic and Materials Chemistry from the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK. During his tenure there, he conducted research at Wolfson Laboratory for Materials and Catalysis. He previously held the position of Thermal Design Supervisor at Tecnicas Reunidas in Madrid, Spain, gaining valuable experience using HTRI methods and software. Mountford oversaw the development of several high-profile PWR and BWR nuclear plant projects, as well as gained valuable experience in the thermohydraulic design of heat transfer equipment for the petrochemical and nitric acid/nitrates industries. His experience in using HTRI Xchanger Suite makes him uniquely qualified to bring an end-user’s perspective to the HTRI training program and to share techniques for effectively working with the software.
