Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger Technology
Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are some of the most widely used industrial heat exchangers. This course describes the characteristics of shell-and-tube heat exchangers compared to other exchanger types and the role of shell-and-tube exchangers within process industries. We also explore the advantages and disadvantages of shell-and-tube heat exchangers to assist with exchanger selection and compare several approaches to modeling the thermal and hydraulic performance of shell-and-tube heat exchangers. Additionally, this course offers an overview of the terminology and standards associated with shell-and-tube exchanger design and construction.
This is an introductory course for engineers – novice to expert – interested in shell-and-tube heat exchanger construction and performance.
