Reactions and Separations
Henry Z. Kister, Matthew Olsson
Use this new correlation based on window liquid velocity to predict baffle tray capacity.

Selecting the Proper Flare System

July
2011
Back To Basics
Adam Bader, Charles E. Baukal Jr., P.E., Wes Bussman
Flares allow for the safe, effective disposal of gases and liquids, by acting as relief devices when a plant must quickly dispose of product within its system to prevent overpressurization and potential explosions.
