  • Design Methods for Reflux Condensers

    Reflux condensers have become increasingly important to eliminate condensable organic components from plant off-gas streams and meet environmental requirements. Recognizing this need, HTRI conducted an experimental and analytical study in the late 90s to predict flooding, as well as heat transfer and pressure drop in vertical intube reflux condensers.

  • The Synergy of Simulation, Experimentation and Technical Support Activities in a Research Consortium

    For the business of designing process heat exchangers, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools are still not practical for everyday use. However, in a research consortium such as HTRI, integrating advanced analysis tools like CFD with industrial-sized experimentation and then applying them to real-world technical problems provides a significant synergistic benefit to the consortium members.

  • Boost maintenance staff efficiency

    Many plants strive to increase the efficiency of maintenance craftspeople, but find it hard to identify where to focus efforts and how to track progress.

  • Your job is still safe... for now

    With mechanical simulation tools, one engineer can do the work of an entire staff. With chemical processes, however, simulation tools aid the staff — but don’t replace it…yet.

  • Joint sealants a viable gasketing option

    While users can now achieve better sealing performance to meet specific needs, the gasket qualification and selection process has become more challenging.

  • Choosing motor controls and drives

    In any industrial control application, using the right drives and motor controls can make or break the project, and also can make a huge difference in how well those applications perform.

  • Fieldbus Wars continue: EDDL vs. FDT/DTM

    Fieldbus technology expert Dick Caro predicts that as Ethernet-based control networks converge into the domain of fieldbus, there will eventually be a conflict between OPC/DX, FDT/DTM, and EDDL.

  • Don't Let Phase Changes Faze You

    Phase changes in the downstream processing or handling of solids cause many process problems that have inexpensive solutions.
