Whether it is maldistribution of flow causing catalyst exhaustion, separation, combustion, thermal fatigue of mixing tees or coking, successful management of fluid and particle dynamics and heat transfer are critical for maximizing refinery uptime and process efficiency. Achieving process efficiency at the plant scale requires strong performance of individual unit operations and equipment.

This webinar will introduce the role that CFD can play in operating an efficient process and meeting environmental regulations through better designs. Specific case study examples of how it is being applied in refineries, and a live demonstration of design space exploration of a burner will also be provided.

This online event is free, but registration is required to obtain log-in information. Please visit our event page for more details.
