About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

This intermediate level 5 half-day Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course is a comprehensive course that explains the technology of shell and tube heat exchangers as these robust types of heat exchangers are the most commonly used in the process and refinery industries where they provide flexibility and are easy to maintain.

The VILT course will provide details on the thermal and mechanical design, fabrication, inspection and maintenance in relation with international standards such as TEMA, API and ISO. For this heat exchanger type, the focus is on the mechanical and practical aspects.

Many case studies will be presented to demonstrate failures and mismatches. The thermal and mechanical design is conducted using sophisticated computer software and this VILT course is intended to complement thermal design training based on HTRI software. Participants will be offered problem case studies in order to reach solutions on their own.

To get a full picture of proven (advanced) heat transfer technologies, a basic training module for other types of heat exchangers is included. Besides Air Cooled, there will be a discussion on compact heat exchangers in more detail with all their pros and cons.

Participants are advised to bring a scientific calculator and laptop with Microsoft Excel installed.

By the end of this VILT course, participants will be equipped on the following:

  • For engineers, this VILT course will provide a broad understanding of the technology and an excellent base for further learning.
  • For those responsible for thermal design, TEMA type selection, the training is intended to illustrate the interaction between the thermal and mechanical design, the understanding of which will lead to more reliable design outcomes.
  • For those coming from an operating environment, the VILT course will lead to a greater knowledge of the maintenance, inspection and repair needs of shell and tube heat exchangers, including information on common causes of failure. Solutions will be offered using the latest “state of art” technologies used to prevent fouling, tube vibration and throughput limitations.

This VILT course is intended for professionals who want to improve the performance of heat exchanger in their company for shell and tube and compact types and include:

  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Maintenance Engineers
  • Instrument Engineers
  • Project Engineers
  • Process Engineers
  • Heat Transfer Engineers
  • Plant Engineers
  • Operation Engineers

This VILT course will be delivered online in 5 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, with 2 breaks of 10 minutes per day.

Course Duration: 5 half-day sessions, 4 hours per session (20 hours in total).

Your expert course leader has almost 40 years of experience in Heat Exchanger Technologies. He is an international expert in heat exchanger type selection, special thermal/hydraulic design and latest enhanced heat transfer technologies.
