Modules & Features
The software is designed for both English and Metric units. For Metric the user can select either Watt or kCal/hr as heat rate unit.
User can analyze up to 10 layers of refractories.
Refractory selection from drop down menu and thickness entry for each layer.
Cold side Emissivity
Cold side emissivity is factored in the calculation.
Convection on cold side
Natural/Forced convection on cold side with the option to enter air velocity.
Process gas on hot side
The software takes into account the refractory porosity and the process filling the pores. The gas selection options are Air, Hydrogen (25%, 50%, 75%, 100%), Nitrogen & Argon.
Division of Layers into sublayers
Each Refractory Layer is divided into several sublayers 0.001 in/0.025 mm thick for accuracy.
Conductivity function of temperature
Conductivity change with temperature is factored in the calculation.
The software adjusts conductivity based on porosity with gas entrapped in the pores.
Straight and Curved Surfaces
The user can run heat loss calculations for both straight and curved walls.
The user can select surface orientation - Vertical Wall, Horizontal Top, Horizontal Bottom.
Calculates refractory temperature change with time. A finite difference algorithm is used for this analysis.
The software comes with a database of 36 refractories from 8 different product class.
Refractory Data Extension
Database of more than 100 refractories compiled from reputed refractory manufacturer are available as an add-on.
Refractory Data Creation
Provides the user with a tool to create new refractory data. Also we provide the service of creating database for our customers.
Results include junction temperatures, temperature profile in the refractory layers, Heat Loss & Heat Storage per unit area. For Transient Analysis the output includes junction temperature with time, heat flux with time and heat storage with time.
Results from each calculation can be displayed in a report format and can be directly printed or converted to PDF format.
Excel Spread Sheet
The results can be exported to an excel spread sheet.
Files containing the refractory data can be store on the local machine or can be accessed from a google drive allowing one unique repository of data.
The new software is developed with dot net technology and runs seamless on XP, VISTA, Windows 7 , Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows 10.
Smart Phone App
An Android SmartPhone App is available with the software. Please visit Google Play Store for a detailed description.
Customer’s logo is fitted with the software if requested by the customers.
Heat Flow Data is calculated using Practice ASTM C680/C1045.
Please check our web application at Furnxpert Web Applications. The Heat Loss Application is similar to our desktop software.
