Melting temperature for pseudo components
|Top Previous Next|
When performing SLE calculations the melting temperature for each pseudo component is needed.
To help the user, an automatic method has been added.
Note: This is an imperial method. Please inspect the values before using them.
Two methods are used to estimate the melting temperature depending on the molar mass of the pseudo component.
If the molar mass is above 1000 g/mole this method is used (See reference 1):
It is based on the fact that as the molar mass of the pseudo component becomes larger, the melting temperature starts to be constant.
If the molar mass is below 300 g/mole the method above does not work well and may be a negative melting temperature. Therefore a group contribution method is used to estimate the melting temperature of the light pseudo components, see reference 2.
