Overview

In many industrial processes, heat energy is transferred by a variety of methods using heat-exchange equipment, oftentimes known colloquially as ‘heat exchangers’. The most important step in the design process for heat exchangers within a process plant occurs at the initial process design stage, based on the basic principles of heat transfer in solids and fluids and material/process financial cost to calculate the required heat transfer rate and area. The design of an individual exchanger may thus be optimised by balancing the heat transfer area and process conditions, and hence the price of the equipment against the operating cost of energy to pump of the fluids.

This 2-day workshop shall focus on the key scientific principles that govern the engineering design of commonly used heat exchanger types such as shell-and-tube and plate-and-frame heat exchangers. A hands-on lab practical session will be conducted with some commonly used heat exchangers types to complement the classroom theoretical understanding and calculations.

Teaching Team

What You’ll Learn

  • Learn and understand the basic operating principles common to all types of heat exchangers
  • Identify the different types of heat exchangers and their designs
  • Know common reasons for heat exchanger failure and fouling and steps to rectify or minimize failure and fouling
  • Perform simple analytical calculations for design and costing of heat exchangers using first principles of heat transfer operations

Who Should Attend

Engineering and technical personnel involved in operating/optimising/designing of heat transfer equipment in HVAC, the oil and gas industry, power engineering, chemicals and pharmaceuticals production plants, general manufacturing and production facilities.
