Why Choose this Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge training course will present the technical and operational features of Heat Exchangers of various designs (shell-and tube (STHE), air-cooled (ACHE), plate (PHE) that play a vital role in thermal power plants and petrochemical and process industries. It has been realized that Engineers of diverse backgrounds and expertise need to develop a sound understanding of fundamental principles and interrelationship between various parameters that govern the well designed and operated heat exchangers

This course will familiarise engineers and technicians with various codes and standards and best practices used for design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of heat exchangers. The emphasis in course will be on the best practices for efficient operation, inspection, maintenance and repair of widely used types of heat exchangers: shell and tube, air-cooled, plate compact types. Several workshops will be included with case studies and real examples from engineering practice that will enable the analysis of the root causes as a prerequisite for effective troubleshooting process.

This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:
