HeatModel..::..Heat Method

This model is used to calculate the emissions associated with the heating of a vessel or other piece of equipment containing a VOC and a non-condensable gas (nitrogen or air). The model assumes that the non-condensable gas, saturated with the VOC mixture, is emitted from the vessel because of (1) the expansion of the gas upon heating and (2) an increase in the VOC vapor pressure. The emitted gas is saturated with the VOC mixture at the exit temperature, the condenser or receiver temperature.

Parameters

initial
Type: Highpoint.Sage.Materials.Chemistry..::..Mixture
The mixture as it exists before the emission.
final
Type: Highpoint.Sage.Materials.Chemistry..::..Mixture%
The resultant mixture after the emission.
emission
Type: Highpoint.Sage.Materials.Chemistry..::..Mixture%
The mixture emitted as a result of this model.
modifyInPlace
Type: Boolean
If true, then the initial mixture is returned in its final state after emission, otherwise, it is left as-is.
controlTemperature
Type: Double
The control or condenser temperature, in degrees Kelvin.
initialTemperature
Type: Double
The initial temerature of the mixture in degrees Kelvin.
finalTemperature
Type: Double
The final temperature of the mixture in degrees Kelvin.
systemPressure
Type: Double
The pressure of the system (vessel) in Pascals.
vesselVolume
Type: Double
The volume of the vessel, in cubic meters.
