Heat Exchanger Fouling Short Course
Course Fee: US$650
Industry experience indicates that using traditional methods in heat exchanger design for fouling service may result in excessive heat transfer area in some applications and promote fouling in others.
This course reviews issues with fouling and several methods used in designing heat exchangers for fouling service.
- Mechanisms, mitigation, and diagnosis of crude oil fouling
- Uncertainty and design margins, including a review of open literature methods
- Overview of cooling water fouling, with discussion of the HTRI predictive model for cooling water fouling
- Risk-based design method
- No-foul design method
Engineers who specify, rate, and/or analyze heat exchangers in fouling service
