Design Options Saddles
Figure Design options saddles
The VES program will automatically determine the optimum position of the saddles during the design cycle of the heat exchanger. The program will assume that both inlet and outlet nozzles are at the bottom when positioning the saddles. The saddle distance will be set at a minimum distance inside both the nozzles taking into account the required access for bolt fixation tools.
The position of the saddles and the standout of the saddles can be set by the user to adjust the position. The positions can be locked to prevent changes by the program when running a new design cycle.
Figure Saddle position details
Refer to L1 and L2 in figure 'Saddle position details' for the nozzle to saddle position.
- L3 gives the 'Distance Center Line tubeside nozzles to nearest saddle'
- L4 is the 'Distance between saddles'.
- The Saddle standout is measured from the centerline of the exchanger
