Heat Transfer Equipment - PF-43
Discipline: Process Facilities
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Mark Bothamley, Ronald Frend
This course reviews the selection, basic design, and operation of heat transfer equipment commonly used in the oil and gas industry, with focus on E&P production facilities. Heat transfer equipment discussed will include shell and tube exchangers, compact heat exchangers, brazed aluminum exchangers, air coolers, and fired equipment (fire-tube and direct-fired).
Engineers and senior operating personnel involved in the design, specification, or operation of heat transfer equipment.
You Will Learn:
- How to select the correct heat transfer equipment for a particular application with reference to typical facility process flow diagrams (PFDs)
- To apply heat transfer principles to design and specify heat transfer equipment
- How to evaluate the performance of heat transfer equipment and recommend solutions to problems
- About the typical instrumentation and control schemes used by the various types of heat transfer equipment
- Typical process heating and cooling applications
- Fluid properties
- Heat transfer principles
- Shell and tube exchangers
- Compact heat exchangers: plate-frame, printed circuit, welded plate
- Brazed aluminum exchangers
- Air coolers
- Fired equipment (furnace type and fire-tube)
- Operating problems
- Typical instrumentation control schemes
