Summary and Info
Vacuum systems are in wide spread use in the petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries and power generation plants. The existing texts on this subject are theoretical in nature and only deal with how the equipment functions when in good mechanical conditions, from the viewpoint of the equipment vendor. In this much-anticipated volume, one of the most well-respected and prolific process engineers in the world takes on troubleshooting vacuum systems, and especially steam ejectors, an extremely complex and difficult subject that greatly effects the profitability of the majority of the world's refineries.Content: Chapter 1 How Jets Work (pages 1–16): Chapter 2 Making Field Measurements (pages 17–37): Chapter 3 Tabulation of Vacuum System Malfunctions (pages 39–53): Chapter 4 Effect of Water Partial Pressure on Jet Efficiency (pages 55–65): Chapter 5 Air Leaks (pages 67–73): Chapter 6 Sources and Disposal of Hydrocarbon Off?Gas (pages 75–100): Chapter 7 Motive Steam Conditions (pages 101–111): Chapter 8 Mechanical Defects of Ejectors (pages 113–121): Chapter 9 Condenser Fouling and Cleaning (pages 123–133): Chapter 10 Pressure Control of Vacuum Towers (pages 135–141): Chapter 11 Condenser Cooling Water Flow (pages 143–149): Chapter 12 Condensate Back?Up in Condensers (pages 151–167): Chapter 13 Seal Leg Drainage (pages 169–196): Chapter 14 Other Types of Vacuum Equipment (pages 197–204): Chapter 15 Air Baffle and Impingement Plate in Surface Condensers (pages 205–216): Chapter 16 Optimizing Vacuum Tower Operation (pages 217–232): Chapter 17 Frequently Asked Questions (pages 233–241):
