Fundamentals and Application of Drag Reducing Agents – Does DRA work by sticking on pipe walls?
May 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
DRA stands for drag reducing agent, which are additives in pipelines that reduce turbulence in the pipe. They are chemicals injected into liquid pipelines to enhance the flowing capacity. A common misconception about DRA is that it works by adhering to the walls of the pipeline. In this webinar, the following will be examined related to DRA:
How it works
How it is used
Factors affecting performance
Use in Design
Some Typical Vendors
