#1202 – Heat Transfer and Thermal Design in the Process Industry

Course Objective

Upon completion of this course, participants will be trained in the thermal processes and equipment used in the process industries. The course discusses basic heat transfer principles and how an engineer can use them, in conjunction with the characteristics of the materials and the process to design, specify, and select equipment that will be cost effective and reliable. The examination of existing units to determine whether they will be able to operate at debottleneck conditions is also discussed. The detailed thermal design of shell and tube heat exchangers and heat recovery equipment is also discussed as an optional course module.

Who Should Attend

Individuals who are inexperienced with heat transfer issues and equipment used in process industries. Also, individuals who will be designing or debottlenecking heat transfer equipment in process industries; or who are managing and performing heat transfer analyses, thermal equipment design, debottlenecking, specification, or purchase.

Course Description

Course Duration – Base course, 2 days (3 days with detailed discussion of thermal design issues)
