Isentropic effects - Application and simulation
Our company has a new article, Isentropic effects - Application and simulation, now published Hydrocarbon Processing's May 2021 magazine. On our Free Tools page, a calculator is provided to input values for equations used in this article. If you are interested in learning more about this topic, please contact us.
From the Isentropic Effects - Application and Simulation article, you can observe the crude vacuum tower overhead line downstream of the vacuum ejector experience the isentropic effect. To view the video, click the download button below (warning: works for PC only).

Other articles on PSV fixes and more are in progress with hopes of future publishing in 2022.
PROCESS ENGINEERING POP QUIZZES
We set up Process Engineering Pop Quizzes on LinkedIn in various forums, including Process Engineering, Oil & Gas Professionals, AIChE, GPA Rocky Mountain, and others. Follow our LinkedIn button at the bottom of the page and check out the past ones. We will compile all of the quizzes over time and publish an e-book with these quizzes for use in academia or in training for workplaces.
Feel free to comment on the LinkedIn forums and help others out. We post the answers after a few days of commentary allowed by everyone.
Quizzes may have repeat numbers and be ordered non-numerically; there is no correct or specific way that the quizzes were numbered or ordered.
We will set up the pop quizzes here on this website over the next couple of months and redirect conversations here. Thanks for the participation.
