By the end of this course you will be able to identify the common types of heat exchanger (plate, shell and tube).
You will be aware of the various designs (parallel, cross and counter flow).
You will know the advantages and disadvantages of each heat exchanger type.
You will know the components of each type of heat exchanger.
You will understand the reasoning for the type and design of heat exchanger employed for certain applications.
You will understand how heat exchanger fouling can occur and what causes it.
You will have practical knowledge concerning heat transfer.

Almost all industrial processes require some form of heat transfer. Oil refineries, power stations, chemical plants and HVAC installations, all must exchange heat. But how you do this in a controlled and efficient manner? What equipment is involved and how does this equipment work? This course will answer all of these questions and many more!

In this course, you will learn about heat exchangers. You will learn about shell and tube heat exchangers and plate heat exchangers. By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Identify different types of heat exchanger.

  • Know advantages and disadvantages associated with each heat exchanger type.

  • Identify single and multi-pass heat exchangers.

  • Identify regenerative and non-regenerative heat exchanger systems.

  • Identify cross, parallel and counter flow designs.

  • Know terminology for the shell and tube heat exchanger, and plate heat exchanger.

  • Know common reasons for heat exchanger failure and fouling.

  • And much more!

The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning heat exchanger knowledge. Even if you already have some background engineering knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (mechanical engineering, HVAC, chemical engineering, oil & gas industry, power engineering etc.), we can guarantee you will have never taken an engineering course like this one (unless you have taken one of our other courses…).
