BRE 600: Webinar – How to Properly Model Plant Turndown

Upcoming Sessions

5/19/2020 - 5/19/2020Online - - North America

This webinar will focus on properly building a gas plant model that is responsive to changing inlet gas rates. Features such as heat exchanger ratings, compressor performance curves, and mass and heat transfer column models will be incorporated to showcase the best way to ensure ProMax models will properly respond to changing conditions, and that model will then be used to show the impact throughput has on the performance of a gas plant. Access to ProMax is not needed for this webinar, which will take approximately 2 hours. The webinar is hosted over WebEx, and information on how to connect to the session will be provided after registration.
