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.
Batch material transfer control seems an easy task to carry out, but the reality is that many functions are necessary if the system is to accomplish accurate batch material transfer control. Weighing systems with device-level controls can help.
