Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers: Mechanical Aspects

  June 03, 2015  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Houston, TX
October 14-16, 2015

Who Should Attend?
This training course is designed for engineers responsible for heat exchanger operations within the oil, gas and chemical process industries. The course will benefit individuals in:

  • Process engineering 
  • Project engineering
  • Mechanical engineering 
  • Operations
  • Inspection 
  • Maintenance

Course Description
Shell and tube heat exchangers are widely used throughout the oil, gas and chemical industries and are critical to the operation of many process plants. Few of these plants employ heat exchanger specialists, so the responsibility for the specification, operation, inspection and maintenance of these equipment items often falls upon engineers who lack specific expertise in this field.

The purpose of this 3-day intensive training course is to provide attendees with the essential knowledge and insight to optimise the performance and reliability of process plant heat exchangers. The course focuses on the commonly-used shell and tube heat exchanger type, but also examines the opportunity to use alternative types where advantageous. The emphasis of the course is on addressing practical issues of relevance to operating plants.
Organized by: CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers:
Ian Gibbard; Heat Exchange Technology Consultant, Progressive Thermal Engineering

Ian Gibbard holds a BSc in Chemical Engineering from Loughborough University of Technology. He has more than 25 years of experience in the design, manufacture, operation and troubleshooting of process and power plant heat exchangers. His first role was as a heat exchanger engineer in a large engineering contractor. This was followed by a move to Cal Gavin Limited, a provider of specialist heat transfer products, becoming Managing Director in 1998. In 2002 he set up his own company, Progressive Thermal Engineering, providing consultancy and training services to a worldwide client base. Gibbard has delivered training courses in over 25 countries for a range of audiences including plant operators, equipment manufacturers and seasoned engineers. His training material draws on his varied experience to provide practical instruction illustrated with insightful case studies.
