Heat Exchanger Design in an Energy Conscious World

  October 01, 2009  
The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
October 29, 2009 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
This online training will benefit professionals in the following industries: Refining, Chemical and Fuels Processing, Alternative and Renewable Energy Production Industries, and industry/academia/government heat integration programs and initiatives.

Job functions that would benefit from the online training include: Process Engineers, Fuel and Energy Specialists, Process Energy Auditors, Process and Technical Services Managers, Plant Engineers and Operations, and Technicians.

In departments such as: Research and Development, Commercial Development, Process Evaluation and Design, Manufacturing and Operations.

This 90-minute accredited online training provides an overview of the equipment used for the transfer of heat energy in the process industries, including that used in chemical plants, refineries, conventional power plants and cogeneration facilities. The transformation of the basic heat balance into a T-Q curve and the resulting zone analysis to produce an effective design is covered. Selection of the appropriate TEMA designation, as well as economic and environmental considerations will be addressed. The seminar will conclude with a discussion of the techniques, such as Pinch Technology, in developing a heat exchanger network.

Module 1:
  • Energy Balance
    – Heat and cooling requirements in a typical chemical plant 
    and refinery
    – Indirect or direct heat transfer
  • Various types of heat exchangers
    – Mechanical design and process arrangement
    – Key vendors and producers
    – Tubular Exchanger Manufacturers Association (TEMA) 

Module 2:
  • Designing a heat exchanger
    – Representing the energy balance on a T-Q diagram
    – Flow patterns in a shell and tube (S-T) heat exchanger
    – Theoretical temperature driving force and correction 
  • Heat transfer coefficients
    – Individual film coefficients
    – Fouling
    – Composing an overall heat transfer coefficient
  • Tubes and required surface area
    – Number of tubes
    – Tube pitch

Module 3:
  • Assessing the performance of a heat exchanger
    – Value of energy transferred
    – Capital cost of the heat exchanger
    – Economic performance
  • Economic sensitivity
    – Leveraging issues, such as the level of energy 
    – Fouling, cleaning and sparing philosophy
  • Future of heat exchanger design
    – New technology
    – Breakthrough design options

Question and Answer Session

Organized by: The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Gennaro J. (Jerry) Maffia, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Process Engineering Manager, Petrochemicals Industry

After twenty years as a principal process engineer and manager in the petrochemicals industry, mostly with Atlantic Richfield, Inc., Professor Maffia joined Widener University in the fall of 1992 as Chairman of the Department of Chemical Engineering. He retired in 2006 and is now Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at Widener University and Adjunct Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Drexel University. Professor Maffia is an active consultant in chemical and bio-based processes, and is an associate of several consulting firms. He has offered short courses and training seminars on process engineering and related topics at industrial and academic sites around the world. Professor Maffia has degrees from Dartmouth College (DE), NYU (MBA), and Manhattan College (BE, ME). He is the holder of six patents with another pending and has supervised forty graduate theses.
