Abstract

Operating a kettle reboiler on high efficiency has been the foci of this study. In this study, an attempt to choose the best design parameters and the optimal operating conditions to attain the highest efficiency while maintaining the annual cost at the lowest. Aspen plus® and Aspen exchanger design and rating (EDR)® software V10 were implemented for design simulation and optimization calculations to control those factors connected to heat transfer coefficient, which is an indication of the efficiency. The study used to apply techniques on the kettle reboilers available in enhancing the gasoline unit in Southern Refinery Company in Iraq. A conclusion found that cast iron is the best metal type while the suitable diameter is found 25.4 mm and optimum operating conditions was 493 k and 4 kg/s, the temperature of cold in-stream and mass flow rate of the fluid entering the hot stream respectively, this yields to increase the efficiency by 28.27%.
