Heat Transfer Equipment or Heat Exchangers simply exchange heat and involves in heat transfer. Fluids or gases are introduced inside the shell side nozzle inlet. Fluids or gases then go through the shell moving through a series of baffles that guides its progress until it finally reaches the shell side outlet. Meanwhile another fluid or gas with a different temperature is pushed through the tube side inlet of the tube bundle. This course reviews the selection, basic design, and operation of heat transfer equipment commonly used in the oil and gas industry with focus on production facilities. Topics will include shell and tube exchangers, compact heat exchangers, brazed aluminum exchangers, air coolers, and fired equipment.

This course provides the participants with a general understanding of the use and operation of various types of heat exchangers. Maintenance problems and troubleshooting procedures associated with heat exchangers are also examined. The course also aimed at the operation of heat transfer equipment to enable participants to obtain the best performance as possible.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers, supervisors, operators, designers, engineering consultants, project engineers and managers, those who involved in design, engineering, maintenance, operation, and safety of the heat transfer & process equipment
