The height should work, but what about diameter? Or, you can possibly just trust what the manufacturer has told you on the label. Specify the pressure drop of a vent silencer https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/august-2019/special-focus-valves-pumps-and-turbomachinery/specify-the-pressure-drop-of-a-vent-silencer Industrial facilities, such as refineries and petrochemical plants, have many systems and equipment that must relieve steam or gases through discharge piping to the atmosphere to avoid overpressure and protect the installation. Innovations https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/june-2019/trends-resources/innovations Librestream and ecom, a Pepperl+Fuchs brand, have collaborated on an innovation for asset analysis and safety inspections in hazardous locations: the Onsight Cube-Ex wearable camera. Mitigating corrosion challenges from opportunity crudes https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/june-2019/process-control-and-instrumentation/mitigating-corrosion-challenges-from-opportunity-crudes High-quality crudes are not always readily available, or at a price that is acceptable to the producer’s budget. Oil flushing benefits and optimization https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/may-2019/special-focus-maintenance-and-reliability/oil-flushing-benefits-and-optimization Oil flushing has a direct impact on the performance and lifespan of industrial equipment. Assess remaining life for heater tubes https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/april-2019/heat-transfer/assess-remaining-life-for-heater-tubes Refineries and petrochemical plants form some of the major sections of the hydrocarbon industry and consume much of the fuel that is burned in furnaces (heaters and specialty furnaces, such as reformers and crackers) to meet process heating requirements. Develop reactor internals for optimizing reactor design - Part 2: High-performance mixing chamber https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/april-2019/process-engineering/develop-reactor-internals-for-optimizing-reactor-design-part-2-high-performance-mixing-chamber Most hydroprocessing reactors are fixed-bed reactors comprising several catalyst beds that are divided by quench zones containing mixing chambers that introduce a vapor-quenching medium. Project Management: Estimate skid and package dimensions https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/march-2019/columns/project-management-estimate-skid-and-package-dimensions In the absence of vendor quotations or detailed engineering, preliminary dimensions of skids or packages can be estimated quickly using the ratio method. Fluid Flow: Retrofit for reliability with Coriolis flowmeters https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/march-2019/columns/fluid-flow-retrofit-for-reliability-with-coriolis-flowmeters Aging infrastructure has become a much-talked-about issue across the hydrocarbon industry. Application of ring-type joint gaskets in a refinery https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/march-2019/maintenance-and-reliability/application-of-ring-type-joint-gaskets-in-a-refinery In refineries and petrochemical plants, ring-type joint (RTJ) flanges have been applied to high-pressure processes or sensitive areas that are susceptible to leaks.
