TT-31 Beware of flow obstructions in inlet and outlet regions
February 14, 2023Component: Xist, Xvib Applicable to: All supported versions (Version 8.2 and Version 9.x) Date posted: 14 February 2023 Flow obstructions in the inlet and outlet regions can invalidate the Xist bundle entrance and exit velocities and thus impact the rho-V2 calculations. The Xist vibration analysis for shell and bundle entrance and exit...
S-SS-3-28 Optimal Application of Shellside Sealing Devices
January 16, 2017This report documents two approaches to analyze the performance of different sealing devices. The first approach examines an exchanger with a fixed sealing device count and varied baffle spacing. The second approach considers an exchanger with fixed shellside geometry but different sealing device types and arrangements. Comparisons are made between experimental...
Research Update: Sealing Device Application
January 16, 2017During this webinar, we discuss the basics of sealing devices, including common practices and design guidelines. Further, we review the basic flow resistance equation for sealing strips used in Xist Version 7 and compare the measured performances of HTRI research-scale heat exchanger using sealing strips to CFD and Xist predictions....
