    Xist Workshop (US$450)

    Instructors:

    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

    Technology Advances in Xchanger Suite 8 Short Course (US$650)

    Instructors:

    Be one of the first to investigate the new and enhanced features in HTRI Xchanger Suite 8. In this short course, you will also learn how HTRI’s latest method improvements will influence your cases and optimize your designs.

    Key Topics

    • Improved navigation and other changes to the Xchanger Suite interface
    • New graphing capabilities
    • Changes to methods including shellside condensation, shellside boiling, piping pressure drop, flow regime maps, enhanced surface heat transfer, and Stream Analysis

    Suggested Participants

    Current and prospective Xchanger Suite end users

    Heat Exchanger Troubleshooting Short Course (US$650)

    Instructors:

    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
