Joule -Thomson Effect Compensation - What is the J-T effect? Typically, it is taken to mean the drop in temperature that occurs when gas pressure is reduced. The magnitude of the temperature drop depends on the starting pressure, the pressure change and the composition of the gas. The J-T coefficient, or the change in temperature per unit change in pressure is not a constant and is highly variable for any particular gas mixture depending on the starting and ending conditions. Why is compensation required? Under large pressure changes, the temperature of the gas or gas mixture can fall to a point were the gas or a component of the mixture starts to condense into a liquid, or in extreme cases to solidify (such as ice formation where traces of moisture exist).The carry over of liquid droplets or ice particles into valves and other machinery components can cause equipment malfunction with catastrophic consequences.The way to prevent this is to preheat the gas before the pressure reduction so that the temperature after expansion is above the saturation temperature of components of the gas mixture - From Grimwood Heating.
When is a Heated Vessel a Pressure Vessel? - Many industries require electric heating of various fluids, either liquids or gases as a normal part of their processes.What are often not fully understood are the regulatory implications for suppliers, owners and operators of this heating equipment. This is especially so when it relates to the potential dangers of heated fluids within closed vessels, and when they become “Pressure Vessels”. This article seeks to provide some guidance for owners and operators of heated vessels so they are in a position to ask the right questions of their suppliers to protect themselves, their employees and their employer.
