Client is a 50:50 joint venture between two global players, one of which is the world leaders in converting biomass into energy
After thermal calculations, the designer of boiler shell has the most challenging task of finding the optimum shell diameter which will not only accommodate the given number of tubes but also satisfy the other design parameters like sinking time, steam space calculations etc. The mathematical model is very complex and the final diameter is computed by trial and error method.
PARAM developed software in which the complete Shell layout Design is automated for the client. This includes - Sinking time calculations, Steam space calculations, Shell Design Calculations, Tube Plates thickness calculations, 1st Pass Tubes & 2nd Pass Tube calculations. Based on the design calculations initial boiler shell diameter and number of tubes are decided. Optimization of shell diameter to fit the given number of tubes is a challenging task. With the logic developed by PARAM Team, the software optimizes shell diameter ensuring best fit for the given number of tubes and the constraints and then checks again the water head and volume for the given shell diameter. If the parameters do not match, the shell diameter is computed again.The software generates the following outputs :
