Mechanical failures in the Waste Heat Boilers are a common cause of SRU trip, which can have major repercussions to the operation of the refinery/gas plant. Often, such failures occur at the tube to tube-sheet joints.
Operating the WHB without any failures requires an understanding of heat transfer and chemistry, the role of ceramic ferrules, failure mechanisms, and establishing proper limits on the safe operating temperature across the WHB.
The webinar will highlight how a high fidelity simulator that captures the underlying chemistry in the WHB can greatly help prevent WHB failures.
Understand WHB and common cause of failure, importance of rigorous reaction and heat transfer based models.
