Energy cost control is not a one-time event, and it takes more than one tool to make progress. A number of people, both internal and external to an industrial facility, can contribute to effective energy management.
What are the motives for managing energy in todays lean competitive environment? Industrys motives and rewards for managing their energy include plant reliability, speed, flexibility, product quality, and greater capacity to generate revenue.
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.
