BK1-19 Transition and Film Boiling Methods for Kettle Reboilers
November 21, 2022This report proposes several correlations based on physical properties to replace the current reduced-pressure correlations Xist® 9.0 uses to determine the maximum heat flux and film boiling heat transfer coefficient for kettle reboilers. It discusses methods to determine the critical temperature differences and documents a new transition boiling method that improves...
Beyond the Basics: Effective Use of the Property Generator in Xchanger Suite
May 20, 2021The selection of a suitable thermodynamic model to generate accurate fluid properties in Xchanger Suite® can be a challenge for novice and experienced users alike, yet the importance of this decision cannot be overstated. Selection of an appropriate thermodynamic model is crucial to the generation of valid physical properties, which are absolutely necessary...
BG1-17 Alternative Boiling Correlations to Those Based on Reduced Pressure
November 19, 2018This report reviews boiling correlations based on reduced pressure and used in Xchanger Suite 8.0. Alternative, more theoretical correlations using physical properties instead of reduced pressure are discussed. ...
