We provide a wider range of training options. Tailored and customized, we can deliver your organization’s training needs anytime, anywhere.
Why Choose this Training Course?
This TEMA Heat Exchangers and Advanced Technologies training course in provides in depth practical presentation of major advanced heat exchanger technologies existing in the world. Pro’s and Con’s of several heat exchanger types are presented and explained with real life practical examples. This intensive and interactive TEMA Heat Exchangers and Advanced Technologies training course provides a good mix of theory and common practices using well selected case studies
Heat exchangers are expected to perform well, but in real life, there are changes in the technological process, and emission regulations, which might result in excessive fouling, high pressure drops and tube vibration. All these may lead to CAPEX intensive replacements. An initial saving with original selection of specialized type of design, might generate higher cost in the future during operation and repair (OPEX).
