Heat Exchangers : Design , Operation & Maintenance

A complete understanding of construction details , functionning and design of heat exchangers for successful operation

What You Will Learn in This Course

  • Design, inspect, maintain and operate heat exchangers 
  • Select and size a shell and tube heat exchanger
  • Design guidelines and specifications
  • Determine correct troubleshooting techniques
  • Know, understand and interpret TEMA standards
  • Analyze heat exchanger performance

What is Covered in This Course

Heat exchangers of various designs and applications are encountered nowadays throughout refining, petrochemical, and process industries as well as in power generation and environmental engineering.

This course is designed to give you a complete understanding of construction details and the functioning of heat exchangers. This understanding is a prerequisite for the successful operation of your plant and piping system.

This course will cover many heat exchanger designs such as plate and frame, fired heaters, double pipe, and spiral heat exchangers. But the focus will be on shell and tube heat exchangers as these are the most popular and widely spread heat transfer equipment.

The course includes extensive graphics, cross-sectional views, real-world video footage, and 3D animations. This will give you practical virtual exposure to heat exchangers.

The objective of this training course is fourfold :

    1. Break down for you all the heat exchanger operating principles into easily digestible concepts, like heat transfer theory and process control, just to name a few...
    2. Illustrate through 3D animations and cross-sectional views the main heat exchanger mechanical components and state their function and operating limits, like tube bundles, baffles, floating heads, and tube sheets...
    3. Provide guidelines and best practices for the heat exchangers' operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. The guidelines presented in this course are in accordance with the latest TEMA standards.
    4. Present a step-by-step design methodology. We will show you how to proceed in the design of a heat exchanger in daily practice, how to determine the effective temperature difference for the heat transfer, and how to calculate the heat transfer coefficient using simple equations. You will learn from our industrial experience what we wrongly calculated or what we wrongly planned during project startup, debottlenecking and commissioning. This should undoubtedly help you minimize the mistakes in the design of your heat exchangers.

So as you can see here, detailed technical descriptions and basic step-by-step instructions will be provided to you along with practice sessions, quizzes, and numerous downloadable resources to emphasize the key learning points.

Course Objectives

    • Design, inspect, maintain and operate heat exchangers and professionally analyze their performance.
    • Select and size a shell and tube heat exchanger for a given duty
    • Understand design guidelines and specifications when allocating fluids Identify the problems in operation that lead to performance deterioration
    • Determine correct troubleshooting techniques
    • Know, understand and interpret TEMA standards and terminologies for shell and tube heat exchangers
    • List the advantages and drawbacks of TEMA types and associate the most appropriate type with operating conditions and fluids properties.
    • Describe the heat exchange laws and identify key parameters impacting the exchange coefficients and pressure drops
    • Employ the concepts of heat transfer coefficients and determine their overall effect on heat exchanger fouling
    • Be an active and efficient communicator during meetings with heat exchanger vendors.
    • Get access to use charts and diagrams to solve daily heat exchanger problems.
    • Get access to valuable shell and tube heat exchanger design tables according to DIN 21184 - 21191 and TEMA std to properly design shell and tube, heat exchangers.
