Deoiling Hydrocyclones And Their Performance Prediction

in Ankur's_Chemical_Engg_Blog
Hi Ankur,
I need to design an hydrocyclone for degassing a low-pressure water/oxygen stream, leaving an electrolytic cell. I have found several calculation methods for different applications, but these, as you say, are empirical, and I don't dare to change a single parameter in them. I know the Muschelknautz method could be applied (with some additional considerations) for ''demisting'' hydrocyclones, but in my case, it's an entirely different application. Nevertheless, I have seen some good articles (and patents) and have a good idea of some design features the hydrocylone may have. Still, I lack information concerning the hydrocyclone design/sizing. I intend to take a ''standard geometry'' (perhaps Rietema or Bradley) and work around it, but do you know of a modelling method or any source of information it could serve my endeavour? Thanks.

Comparing Iso13709 / Api 610 With Ansi / Asme B73.1 Centrifugal Pumps

in Ankur's_Chemical_Engg_Blog

For anyone interested, I have a copy of a technical summary comparing API610, ANSI B73.1M and ISO 5199 pumps. Also, API 610 8th Edition gave guidelines for the selection of non API 610 compliant pumps (Section 1 - General, paragraph 1.1.4). No doubt the selection of API 610 pumps for all duties in refinery service would likely give an extremely robust pump, but in circumstances where a more lightly constructed pump, in relatively non-hazardous service would suffice, there are massive savings in cost and much reduced lead times for appropriate ANSI/ISO standard pumps

If still online after +10 years you posted your offering, please share a copy once more. Thanks a lot in advance. jlopezcavada@hotmail.com
