This training provides an introduction to the design of heat exchanger networks. It incorporates the techniques that came to be known as Pinch Analysis. The methods introduced in the course are now well established for the design of energy systems.
Principles are introduced that provide the capability to predict achievable targets for minimum energy consumption by maximising heat recovery. These are based on sound scientific principles. Such targets can be used to scope and screen many design options quickly and effectively without having to carry out the designs.
Once design options have been chosen using targets, then systematic procedures allow the targets to be achieved in practice. Methods can have a manual basis with the aid of some scientific principles. Alternatively, the design process can be automated.
This course provides an introduction to the principles of heat integration. The methods have been proven in many industrial applications, both new design and retrofit.
Who Should Be Trained?
The training is intended for people with a chemical or mechanical engineering background working in the process industries, or in engineering and consultancy companies servicing those industries. Process engineers, utility engineers and managers, and energy managers should attend this course.
Dates & Course Fees
The next available public training will take place on 12-13th September 2017.
