March 15, 2009: Thermoflow Suite 19 (TFLOW19) released. Some highlights follow.
Post-combustion capture of CO2 from flue gas in combined cycles, and pre-combustion CO2 capture in IGCC plants are available in GT PRO/MASTER.
Post-combustion CO2 capture from flue gas is available in STEAM PRO/MASTER.
CO2 capture using physical or chemical absorption is available in THERMOFLEX to extract CO2 from flue gas or syngas streams.
GT PRO and GT MASTER include a large-format comprehensive heat balance diagram to display detailed heat and mass balance results for the entire plant model on a single flowsheet. A 4ft x 3ft (1220mm x 914mm) comprehensive heat balance printout for an IGCC plant is included to demonstrate this new feature.
STEAM PRO and STEAM MASTER include a grate-fired boiler option for modeling plants burning low grade fuels like municipal solid waste.
THERMOFLEX/PEACE includes additional shell-tube heat exchangers for use with a variety of fluids in liquid, two-phase, and vapor states.
THERMOFLEX Solar Field now includes linear Fresnel collector configuration, direct steam generation (DSG) capability, and cost estimation. Read update letter distributed with TFLOW19 for details.
18 new gas turbine specifications were added to the GT library used by all THERMOFLOW programs. 2 gas turbine specifications were updated. The library now includes 372 engine specifications.
