Fired Heater

The fired heater is hydraulically limited. Will increasing the tube pass from 2 to 4 in the convection section solve the problem?

In-plant Piping System

What are the required pump size and the NPSH to send flow from a column (source) to a fractionator (sink)?

Recirculation System

De-ionized water flows from tank to points of use while a portion of it re-circulates to avoid stagnation. What is the optimal header line size to meet target DI water supply requirement?

Relief and Blowdown

Simultaneous reliefs from two separate locations in one service. Multiple relief valves feeding to a common relief header from each relief location. Two relief headers feed to a knock-out drum. Relief vapors go to a flare. Do existing sizes of relief valves satisfy the new relief load?
