Engineers may design flat bundles in kettle reboilers by removing tuberows from round bundles to create a larger disengagement space. This webinar discusses application of the kettle reboiler circulation boiling model to flat bundles. It reviews calculations for the static driving head and maximum heat flux for flat bundles. We also demonstrate how removing rows from a round bundle to create a flat one affects the total bundle flow rate and the critical heat flux.
