Example text

Industry standards are limited to moderate pressures and temperatures and do not cover subjects that are beyond the control of manufacturers, such as fouling, corrosion, vibration, leak tightness of flanges, and tube ruptures. 4 Company Engineering Standards and Specifications Company engineering standards and specifications address subjects that are applicable to most exchangers and that are beyond the scope of industry standards. They typically reference and supplement API 660 for shell-and-tube exchangers and address additional requirements concerning fouling, corrosion, tube vibration and tube rupture, and leak tightness of flanges.

The designer must also consider system economics. One must allocate the streams to minimize equipment cost and operating cost. Mechanical and materials constraints include: • Minimizing • Initial equipment cost [capital expense (OPEX)] and • Operating cost [operating expense (OPEX)] • Thermal expansion • Flange and tube leaks • Safety • Materials versus process conditions Fouling information is highly proprietary. The designer must understand and control fouling to avoid its high costs. 1 Key Parameter for Design and Troubleshooting The allowable pressure drop should be set by process constraints.

9 can be used to estimate the viscosity of a hydrocarbon gas at various conditions of temperature and pressure if the specific gravity of the gas at standard conditions is known. It is useful when the gas composition is not known; it does not make corrections for H2S, CO2, and N2; and it is useful for determining viscosities at high pressure. 9 yields results within acceptable limits. When compared to liquid viscosity, gas viscosity is very low due to the relatively large distances between molecules in a gas.
