Course Description

The course is formulated with objectives of understanding the heat transfer equipments, typical features and tube heat transfer and exchangers, design methods and design thumb rules, operation, control and troubleshooting aspects.  The course further deals with how to optimize for  both mechanical and thermal design requirements.  The course will cover several case studies for clarifying the design methodology and solving real life  problems in Heat exchanger Operation, Control and  Troubleshooting.  The course deals with Failure of heat  exchangers: operating conditions, sources of failures,bstart-up issues, Malfunctioning – typical causes and remedial measures and learn how to troubleshoot, diagnose and correct operating problems.
