## Length of Shell for Jacket Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Length of Shell for Jacket = Length of Straight Side Jacket+1/3*Depth of Head
Ljacket = Ls+1/3*ho
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Length of Shell for Jacket - (Measured in Millimeter) - The Length of Shell for Jacket refers to the length of the cylindrical portion of the vessel where the jacket is installed.
Length of Straight Side Jacket - (Measured in Millimeter) - Length of Straight Side Jacket refers to the length of the cylindrical section of the vessel where the jacket is installed, excluding the height of the heads.
Depth of Head - (Measured in Millimeter) - Depth of Head refers to the vertical distance between the top of the vessel and the liquid level in the vessel when it is filled to its maximum operating capacity.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Length of Straight Side Jacket: 497 Millimeter --> 497 Millimeter No Conversion Required
Depth of Head: 70 Millimeter --> 70 Millimeter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Ljacket = Ls+1/3*ho --> 497+1/3*70
Evaluating ... ...
Ljacket = 520.333333333333
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.520333333333333 Meter -->520.333333333333 Millimeter (Check conversion ​here)
520.333333333333 520.3333 Millimeter <-- Length of Shell for Jacket

Maximum Hoop Stress in Coil at Junction with Shell
​ Go Maximum Hoop Stress in Coil at Junction with Shell = (Design Jacket Pressure*Internal Diameter of Half Coil)/(2*Thickness of Half Coil Jacket*Weld Joint Efficiency Factor for Coil)
Required Plate Thickness for Dimple Jacket
​ Go Required Thickness of Dimple Jacket = Maximum Pitch between Steam Weld Centre Lines*sqrt(Design Jacket Pressure/(3*Allowable Stress for Jacket Material))
Required Thickness for Jacket Closer Member with Jacket Width
​ Go Required Thickness for Jacket Closer Member = 0.886*Jacket Width*sqrt(Design Jacket Pressure/Allowable Stress for Jacket Material)
Jacket Width
​ Go Jacket Width = (Inside Diameter of Jacket-Outer Diameter of Vessel)/2

## Length of Shell for Jacket Formula

Length of Shell for Jacket = Length of Straight Side Jacket+1/3*Depth of Head
Ljacket = Ls+1/3*ho

## What is Jacketed Reaction Vessel?

A jacketed reaction vessel is a type of vessel used in the process of chemical reactions or mixing substances together under certain conditions. The vessel is typically made of a durable material such as stainless steel or glass and is designed to withstand high temperatures and pressures. The jacket surrounding the vessel is filled with a heating or cooling medium, such as water or oil, to control the temperature of the contents inside the vessel. The jacketed design allows for precise temperature control and uniform heating or cooling of the contents inside the vessel during the reaction process. These vessels are commonly used in chemical, pharmaceutical, and food processing industries.

## What is Design Length?

Design Length refers to the length of a structural element or a machine component that is designed to withstand certain loads or stresses without failure. It is an important factor in engineering design and is determined based on various factors such as the type of material, load conditions, and the strength requirements of the component. In the context of vessels, design length may refer to the overall length of the vessel or the length of specific sections such as the cylindrical or conical parts.
