Heat exchangers are critical to a wide variety of engineering applications –
From power plants to chemical processing facilities. When they go down, you feel the negative impact. Join heat exchanger expert Thomas Lestina and get up-to-date on the latest developments and strategies in heat exchanger design and the diagnosis, correction and troubleshooting of costly operating problems.
Gain a working knowledge of recent developments
In two days, you’ll examine in detail the design of shell-and-tube exchanger technology – the most common type of heat exchanger in oil refineries and chemical processes – and how to minimize fouling and ensure trouble-free operation. You’ll learn how to efficiently operate other types of exchangers, including gasketed plate, spiral plate and air-cooled equipment. Plus, you’ll learn strategies to help you troubleshoot, diagnose and correct operating problems – including those common to distillation column reboilers and condensers.
By the end of the course, you’ll gain state-of-the-art information and strategies you can apply to ensure the success of your next project involving heat exchanger sizing, specification and operation.
Here’s a preview of what you’ll learn:
- Shell-and-tube heat exchanger technology – what’s new and how to apply it
- The critical aspects of heat exchanger design
- A look at the thermal design of shell-and-tube heaters, coolers, column reboilers and condensers
- How to quickly and accurately troubleshoot, diagnose and correct operating problems in distillation column reboilers and condensers
