Heat Exchanger Troubleshooting

Design decisions can have a costly impact on heat exchanger

operation. Learn by reviewing several real cases in which unit designs had critical commercial consequences for operators/owners. In some cases, the units did not work in service; in others, the designs were revamped before the units began operation. Each case study is introduced as a problem; participants work individually or in groups to determine the cause and develop solutions. Prior to each case, the instructor reviews related HTRI methods.
