Inferential Models Using Vapor-Liquid Equilibrium Equations of State

Vapor-liquid equilibrium properties, such as dew point and enthalpy, can be more indicative of plant performance issues than raw online measurements. This article demonstrates how to use these properties to create inferential models.      


Site Selection and Buffer Zone Maintenance

Establishing and maintaining buffer zones as additional space between the community and hazardous operations or chemical storage is an essential consideration for risk management.
