Kettle Reboiler Design software tool is made to demonstrate the thermal design calculations and analysis of Kettle typeclean scan reboilers.


The software is user friendly and can be used to make preliminary sizing calculations that will help to give a clear outlook of the initial design.

Main features:

  1. Ability to use to different units of measurement, SI units and English (US) units
  2. Calculation of Duty, Area, Tube length.
  3. Calculation of number of tubes
  4. Calculation of Shell Diameter by iteration
  5. Calculation of Weir height
  6. Calculation of Nucleate pool boiling heat transfer coefficient using two different correlations
  7. Calculation of tube side heat transfer coefficient using two different correlations
  8. Calculation of Velocities on the tube and shell side
  9. Calculation of Maximum allowable vapour velocity on the shell side
  10. Calculation of the Maximum critical flux using three different correlations
  11. Calculation of Shell side Heat Flux
  12. Calculation of Number of Vapour nozzles
  13. Calculation of Prandtl number on shell and tube sides and Reynolds number for the tube side
  14. Calculation of Clean/Fouled Overall Heat transfer coefficients
  15. Calculation of Tube side pressure drop
  16. The ability to calculate unknown mass flow rate
  17. Calculate the scale resistance (dirt factor)
  18. Ability to import properties to Shell/Tube sides form Microsoft Excel
  19. Compare upto 5 different cases in one window
  20. Save/Load results.
  21. Generate/Print Results summary and export it to Ms Word and paste it to whichever suitable

Included Databases:

  • 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.
  • Ability to add your own properties in the additional user databases.
  • Fouling factors, Overall heat transfer coefficients and film heat transfer coefficients included.


The demo version will function with limitations for 30 days
