Hello Mr Rahimzadeh,

What about steam qualification (probably it is saturated) at the origin i.e. at 7 barg?What about design pressure of tube side?More information is required....It may lead to higher traffic across the column,or floading of its trays,or overpressurization of the column,or even level build up in bottom of the column.......

Fallah

Dear m.r.rahimzadeh

It would be more helpful for us to understand your query if you provide more details.
I am particularly interested in whether reboiler steam side pressure ( commonly called as reboiler chest pressure) has increased over the period of time or you want to increase the steam pressure. Also what is the column bottom temperature?

Have a nice day.
