Kettle Reboiler Heat Exchanger type exchangers are  essentially a pool boiling devices. Their designed is based on data for nucleate boiling.  In the tube bundle the vapor rises from the lower rows of the tube passes over the upper rows.

This software product will do thermal design calculations and sizing for this type of heat exchangers.

Kettle Reboiler  Heat Exchanger Software Features (KRD)

  1. Different units of measurement, SI units and English (US) units
  2. Duty, Area, Tube length, Number of Tubes, Shell Diameter by iteration, Weir height can be calculated.
  3.  Nucleate pool boiling heat transfer coefficient using two different correlations can also be calculated.
  4. Calculation of tube side heat transfer coefficient using two different correlations
  5. Velocities on the tube and shell side and  Maximum allowable vapour velocity on the shell side can be calculated.
  6. Calculation of the Maximum critical flux using three different correlations
  7. Calculation of Shell side Heat Flux and Number of Vapour nozzles
    Calculation of Prandtl number on shell and tube sides and Reynolds number for the tube side
  8. Calculation of Clean/Fouled Overall Heat transfer coefficients and  Tube side pressure drop
  9.  The ability to calculate unknown mass flow rate
  10.  Calculate the scale resistance (dirt factor)
  11. Ability to import properties to Shell/Tube sides form Microsoft Excel
  12.  Compare up to 5 different cases in one window
    Save/Load results.
  13. Generate/Print Results summary and export it to Ms Word and paste it to whichever suitable
  14.  Estimate the Physical properties of pure components for more than 1450 components; the database has the ability to estimate Thermal Conductivity, Density, Heat Capacity and Viscosity. The database also included critical properties, boiling and melting points and come as a standalone interface but easily integrated with the software.
  15.  Estimate mixture properties. (ALL ESTIMATION METHODS CURRENTLY SUPPORT LIQUIDS ONLY)
  16.  Ability to add your own properties in the additional user databases.
  17.  Fouling factors, Overall heat transfer coefficients and film heat transfer coefficients included.
