ThermAI Dynamic Retrofit Test™ is a predictive approach to testing the performance of a proposed retrofit design in ThermAI Data Studio™ using historical plant data and assess how the exchanger would have performed in operation over a given period.
Dynamic Retrofit Test™ enables identifying the benefits in furnace savings as a direct result of foul reduction in the retrofitted exchanger - taking into account complex network interactions.
1. Quantitative assessment of benefits and drawbacks of re-design:
- Fouling rates
- Network interaction
- Pressure drop
2. Estimated savings in terms of:
- Heat duty at the heat exchanger
- Heat duty at the furnace
3. Estimation of economic trade-offs and ROI of various retrofit/mitigation options
