Hi 

 

I need help in finding constants for catalytic reactor vessel cost. I have attached a document that i want to use for this, but i am failing to find some constants or how i can calculate them that are used in the cost equations. specifically the Cp constant used in the pressure drop cost and the Cv constant used in the vessel cost.

 

Please help

Hi ,

If I was in your shoes, I will extract the data from the charts and then perform identification of the coefficients using the same models. if you are familiar with Excel , let you try Linest Function to identify the parameters .

example attached :

Afterwards I will adjust the figures taking account the year the document was published versus today using the CEPCI information .

Hope this is helping you.

Good luck

Breizh
