Design and Selection of Heat Exchangers

alt text

This two-day course covers the design, selection, and sizing of heat exchangers. The course begins with a brief review of heat transfer fundamentals. It continues with a look at four main types of heat exchangers that are used in the industry: the Double Pipe Heat Exchanger, the Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger, the Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger, and the Cross Flow Heat Exchanger.

The discussion of each of these exchangers includes a description construction, various methods of analysis, and design considerations. The course also includes real-world examples and in-class problems. An appendix of relevant data is also provided as part of the course.

You Will Learn To:

  • Explain the heat transfer fundamentals needed to analyze heat exchangers
  • Analyze the four types of existing heat exchangers
  • Determine how to select and size a exchangers for a given duty
  • Identify the advantages and disadvantages of each of the four types of exchangers

Course Requirements
Participants are required to bring a scientific calculator with them to the course. Excel® spreadsheets will be provided; therefore, it is strongly recommended for participants to bring their laptops to class.

Who Should Attend
This course is intended for engineers who specify, use or analyze heat exchangers on a regular basis, or for those in the process industries that need a broader background in sizing heat exchangers. The participant should be an engineer or engineering technologist who is familiar with, or wants to become more familiar with heat exchangers and the methods of analyzing them.
