  • in reply to: Fire water conection for drum cooling #28065

    Thanks for your reply Mike. We had a recent Black Out on the refinery and we cooled at the end with top wáter. It was the only alternative because the feed line was completely plugged.
    The point we were discussing is to have an inmediat source of wáter, such as fire wáter, using the diesel oil driven pump.
    I will check the presentation you mention, and I agree that using the cooling water pump discharge could be a good place.

  • in reply to: COT Thermowell insertion lenght #27626

    Thanks for your reply Mike.
    We made the calculations using ASME 19.3, but the main problem we had is to stablish flow conditions at that point (conversion, vaporization, etc.). The result of the calculation was to insert the thermowell 6″, i will let you know if we have news from this.
