Dear All,

Can Anybody explain the concept of designing the Seperator Vessel for supercritical boiler. Whether the same Souders-Brown equation to determine the maximum allowable vapor velocity:

V = (k) [ (dL - dV) / dV ]^0.5

can be used?

If this is not right please explain?.

What do you want to separate? Under supercritical conditions there are no seperate liquid and vapor phases.

Googling "supercritical boiler" can reveal a lot of info, like the one in http://plainsjustice...ogy Matures.pdf. This web reference indicates no steam and mud drum in such boilers, djack77494 post also indicates that.
