Xfh® Ultra 2.0 beta coming soon

The beta for HTRI’s Xfh Ultra 2.0 will soon be available for licensed users to download. This will be your opportunity to try the new beta version and provide comments that could improve the software prior to its full release.

Some of the significant changes include

  • multiple dissimilar fireboxes and flue gas mixers
    Handles multiple dissimilar fireboxes in a single simulation that share a common convection section (e.g., inter-stage heating in catalytic reformers). In addition, the introduction of a flue gas mixer unit operation allows for more complex flue gas arrangements such as multiple fired heaters sharing a common stack, supplementary heating, and air ingress.
  • interactive fired heater flowsheet
    Provides a new, flow-sheet style, interactive fired heater diagram for defining more complex fired heater configurations.
  • firebox and radiant coil diagrams
    Includes 3D diagrams of the firebox and associated radiant coils, along with the ability to zoom and rotate.
  • convection section improvements
    Provides a more comprehensive definition of convection bank geometries, including the presence and size of corbels and duct dimensions.
  • transfer lines and crossovers
    Includes unheated process lines, which can have a significant impact on the pressure drop, in the overall fired heater simulation. These can be cross-overs between heater sections or transfer lines to adjacent unit operations.
  • steam injection
    Specifies the inclusion of any number of steam injection points into the tubeside process fluid, which is an important consideration in vacuum heaters.
  • liquid fuels with steam atomization
    Defines atomizing steam as part of a liquid fuel definition.
  • flow regime parameters
    Reports parameters to determine flow regimes at each solution point using HTRI and Baker flow regime maps.
