Course Description

Heat transfer systems or also known as thermal transfer systems or Temperature Control Units, are designed to provide indirect heat to processes using a thermal transfer fluid. Thermal Transfer fluids include water, glycol, water-glycol mixtures, and thermal oils. Heat transfer systems provide heating and cooling of exothermic processes. Heating and cooling can be accomplished using the same thermal transfer fluid. Heat Transfer Systems are used when close even temperatures are required across the process.

Course Objectives

  • Analyze Heat transfer fluid circuit
  • Understand characteristic temperatures 
  • Learn about Hot oil boiler 
  • Explore valves classification and selection criteria 
  • Discuss process control and ESD system
