    Xist Workshop (US$450)

    Instructor: Peter Joosten

    Even if your work is limited to shell-and-tube heat exchangers, there’s much to be learned! This workshop is devoted to the geometries handled only by Xist. The day focuses on the extensive options available in Xist and how you can use these methods effectively to solve several example problems. You will leave the class knowing how to take full advantage of the features this robust tool offers.

    Key Topics

    • Overview of Xist capabilities and applications
    • Geometry input for shell-and-tube heat exchangers
    • Process specifications for rating, simulation, and design
    • Guidelines for specifying fluid properties
    • Introduction to vibration analysis

    Suggested Participants

    Designers of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance

    Heat Exchanger Troubleshooting Short Course (US$650)

    Instructor: Peter Joosten

    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.

    Key Topics may include:

    • Steam generator with tube failure
    • Intercooler with vibration concern
    • Condenser-subcooler with design flaws
    • Recuperator with performance shortfall
    • Economizer with convergence issues
    • Brine chiller with insufficient duty
    • Flooded condenser with inadequate subcooling
    • Air-cooled condenser with noncondensables
    • Once-through reboiler with instability
    • Vapor-liquid separation
    • Fouling with tube failure
    • Gas cooler with inadequate performance

    Suggested Participants

    Engineers—from novice to expert—who want to ensure that design problems are identified before operation

Senior Consulting Engineer & Regional Sales Manager, Australia/Oceania, works with HTRI’s Engineering Services and Global Sales teams. His principal responsibilities include developing and conducting training programs, providing technical support, and promoting membership in the HTRI consortium. He earned a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from Fontys University of Applied Science, Venlo, The Netherlands. Prior to joining HTRI, Joosten was a Senior Heat Transfer Engineer at W. E. Smith Engineering, Coffs Harbour, Australia. His primary role was the thermal design and analysis of all types of shell-and-tube exchangers, air coolers, economizers, feedwater heaters, and steam surface condensers. He was also responsible for the mechanical design and stress analysis of these units, as well as for analyzing and resolving operational issues. His previous experience with HTRI software gives him a valuable end-user perspective.
