       1. Feed Inlet
             1. Side Inlet
                   1. One site has single horizontal side feed inlet
                         1. No problems to date

                   2. One site has 2 horizontel inlets but unheader not installed yet
                         1. No Problems
                   3. How long will they last & fatigue
                         1. May work better because intergrally re-enforced
                         2. Change in Temperature accross the wall is the only contraint
                         3. Change in temperature accros diameter not measured yet
                         4. No problem with flange                
                   4. Recommend to insall TI’s to get real data for analysis. Strain Guage also useful
                   5. Need to reduce piping loads
                         1. Check Hangers & Reliefes
                   6. Will dual inlet cancel eachother & send flow up center of drum

                         2. Compare to expense of FR vs Welded
                         3. Does this FR last longer?
                               1. Need user feedback
                               2. Theoretically, yes, longer life, but it depends attachments
                   2. Egg in cup & Linkage Style
                         1. Remove bending stress in skirt due to drum expansion when hot
