Heat Exchanger Design, Operation and Maintenance For Industry Professionals


Workshop Overview

Heat can be transferred from one place to another by three methods: conduction in solids, convection of fluids (liquids or gases), and radiation through anything that will allow radiation to pass. The method used to transfer heat is usually the one that is the most efficient. If there is a temperature difference in a system, heat will always move from higher to lower temperatures.

A heat exchanger is a device which transfers heat from one medium to another, a Hydraulic Oil Cooler or example will remove heat from hot oil by using cold water or air. However, they are not only used in heating applications, such as space heaters, but are also used in cooling applications, such as refrigerators and air conditioners. Many types of heat exchangers can be distinguished from on another based on the direction the liquids flow.

Key benefits of attending this workshop

 involved in design, operations, troubleshooting and maintenance, supervisors, technicians and technologists in oil, chemical, power, and other industries who require a more extensive understanding of heat exchangers.

Why you should Attend?

This course will feature the importance and relevance of the important and expensive items of equipment known as heat exchangers that are used in a wide variety of industries. It will familiarize engineers and technicians with the various standards and practices used for design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of heat exchangers.

To all these engineers with diverse backgrounds and expertise, the principle of heat exchangers design and codes will allow them to understand the recommended practices. Participants have the opportunity to learn about the different control methodologies and installation through group work and case studies.

In this workshop, you will be exposed on different types of heat exchangers and their performance. Further to that, participants will learn about troubleshooting and advanced monitoring techniques related to heat exchangers.
