Masterclass Overview
The need for proper energy management has considerably increased the importance of heat exchange equipment over the past 2-3 decades. Enormous costs are involved with heat exchanger fouling. Latest studies show that in highly industrialized countries total fouling costs are about 0,25% of Gross National Product. This training course is an introduction to the fouling mitigation technologies for heat exchangers like Shell & Tube heat exchangers, Air Cooled heat exchangers, and Compact Type heat exchangers. The course will provide details on the maintenance aspects of several heat exchanger types in relation to process and mechanical design. Many case studies will be presented to show failures, mismatches. The thermal and mechanical design aspect in relation to fouling behavior is conducted using sophisticated computer software based on HTRI software. Attendees will be offered problem case studies in order to reach solutions on their own. To get a full picture of proven (advanced) heat transfer technologies a training module for other types of heat exchangers is included. Besides Air Cooled we discuss Compact heat exchangers in more detail with all their pros and cons and fouling mitigation behavior.

Masterclass Objectives
For those engineers not familiar with fouling behavior in shell and tube heat exchangers, this course will provide a broad understanding of the technology and an excellent base for further learning. For those responsible for maintenance, the training is intended to illustrate the interaction between the thermal and mechanical design, the understanding of which will lead to more reliable design outcomes. For those coming from an operating environment, the course will lead to a greater knowledge of the maintenance, inspection and repair needs of shell and tube heat exchangers, including information on common causes of failure. Solutions will be offered using latest state of art technologies are used to prevent fouling, tube vibration and throughput limitations.

Specially Designed for
