hysys volume flow

hysys volume flow


I have a stream flowing at 400F, 1 atm.  hysys gives std liquid volume flow of 615 barrel/day.  So hysys calculates the 615 barrel/day base on 60F and 14.73psi, is that right? Thank you.  

RE: hysys volume flow

There are several different types of "standard flows" defined in HYSYS - so be carefull.

The trickiest one is the one where they state the flow if all components were condensed - and this was transferred to standard conditions - where this would be condensed - beat me?

Best regards


RE: hysys volume flow

Also be wary of the fact that the standard conditions used will also change depending upon what temperature unit you are using to view your case.  When viewing in C or K the standard temperature used is 15C, when viewing temperature in F or R the standard temperature being used is 60F.
