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. Unit Converter includes 23 measurements units with 200-unit conversion
  3. Calculation of Duty, Area, Tube length.
  4. Calculation of number of tubes
  5. Calculation of Shell Diameter by iteration
  6. Calculation of Weir height
  7. Calculation of Nucleate pool boiling heat transfer coefficient using four different correlations, an option to enter the value is also available.
  8. Calculation of tube side heat transfer coefficient using two different correlations, an option to enter the value is also available.
  9. Calculation of Velocities on the tube and shell side
  10. Calculation of Maximum allowable vapour velocity on the shell side
  11. Calculation of the Maximum critical flux using three different correlations
  12. Calculation of Shell side Heat Flux
  13. Calculation of Number of Vapour nozzles
  14. Calculation of Prandtl number on shell and tube sides and Reynolds number for the tube side
  15. Calculation of Required/Clean/Fouled Overall Heat transfer coefficients
  16. Calculation of over surface and over design.
  17. Calculation of Tube side pressure drop
  18. The ability to calculate unknown mass flow rate
  19. Calculate the scale resistance (dirt factor)
  20. Advisory design notice
  21. Ability to import properties to Shell/Tube sides form Microsoft Excel
  22. Compare unlimited different cases in one window
  23. Save/Load results. Set default units of measurements.
  24. Generate/Print Results summary and export it to Ms Word and paste it to whichever suitable
  25. Water and steam properties

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.
  • A second database available at a discount during purchase of this software. Check out PhysPro Fluid Properties
