Xfh® Ultra

Xfh Ultra, HTRI’s new general-purpose fired heater modeling software, is flexible enough to handle most fired heater configurations. It incorporates a user-friendly interface that reduces learning time and increases efficiency. 

Xfh Ultra complements HTRI’s Xfh® software, an advanced tool for detailed analysis which uses a multizone firebox model.

Non-core Software Products

HTRI offers several additional software products that can be independently licensed.

SmartPM

SmartPM performance monitoring, analysis, and prediction software for shell-and-tube heat exchanger networks supports a greater understanding of oil refinery operational performance.  Through monitoring and reconciling plant data, SmartPM provides accurate performance predictions through detailed heat exchanger modeling. It enables engineers to make informed decisions regarding maintenance or energy use, such as determining optimal exchanger cleaning schedules.  

Edgeview

Edgeview helps the plant process engineer and corporate heat transfer specialist reduce plant downtime, decrease energy costs, plan maintenance activities, and ensure safe operations. The software can be customized to analyze plant operating data. The analysis is tailored to meet site-specific needs, including thermal models, diagnostic algorithms, and specialized data integration.

XSimOp 

Get HTRI accuracy inside your process simulator environment! XSimOp is a new line of unit operation calculation modules for process simulators. The first of these products, XSimOp ShellTube, is available for Honeywell UniSim® Design. Additional exchanger types and process simulators will be supported in the future.

Exchanger Optimizer 

Finding the best solution for your heat transfer system requires careful evaluation of capital, installation, operating, and maintenance costs. Exchanger Optimizer simplifies the complicated design process and could potentially save your company millions. Engineers can use this software to quickly obtain relative cost estimates, compare multiple configurations, and select the most cost-effective configuration.

Xchanger Suite® Educational 

Xchanger Suite Educational is a suite that includes Xace, Xist, and Xphe for use by educational institutions.
