Two important considerations in heat exchanger design and analysis with Xchanger Suite are defining a heat exchanger’s geometry and specifying fluid properties. This webinar focuses on fluid property specification. We will provide an overview of the available options in Xchanger Suite, illustrate these options using simple examples, and discuss HTRI’s recommendations and guidelines. 

Registration deadline: November 30, 2020 (11:59 PM CST)


December 15 - 16, 2020
Registration Deadline: December 07, 2020


Schedule

This course consists of two live online, instructor-led sessions, each from 8:30 AM to 11:45 AM CST.

Session 1: Tuesday, December 15, 2020
Session 2: Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Registrants will receive an email containing instructions on how to access the sessions. The email will be distributed at least (2) business days prior to the first scheduled session.

Description

This short course moves beyond the fundamentals of thermal design to focus on specific design challenges associated with a range of service types including viscous shellside coolers, feed-effluent exchangers, kettle reboilers, and vacuum condensers. Presented as a series of case studies, each topic is introduced by the instructor before participants delve into Xist to work on solutions which are ultimately discussed amongst the group. The knowledge attained from this short course will allow you to tackle related design challenges in your future work.

Key Topics

  • viscous shellside coolers
  • feed-effluent exchangers
  • kettle reboilers
  • vacuum condensers

Suggested Participants

Experienced Xist users who troubleshoot cases and evaluate shell-and-tube exchanger performance

Course Fee: US$650

Xspe® is an incremental program that lets you quickly and easily predict the thermal-hydraulic performance of Type I (i.e., spiral-spiral flow) single-phase spiral plate exchangers. This webinar gives a brief overview of the basic geometry of spiral exchangers, highlights the benefits of this exchanger type, such as the self-cleaning mechanism and true counter-current flow, and identifies the various applications of Xspe regarding single-phase spiral flows with Newtonian viscosity parameters. After the initial discussion, we demonstrate how to rate and evaluate a spiral exchanger using Xspe including how to navigate the interface, input geometry, and interpret results. 

Registration deadline: January 11, 2021 (11:59 PM CST)

Horizons Symposium on Heat Transfer in Environmental Technologies

Four Seasons Hotel
Baltimore Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Date: April 21-22, 2022

Our Horizons Symposium will provide a platform for industry, academia, and government research staff to network, discuss problems, and propose solutions for heat transfer in environmental technology applications. This two-day event will feature presentations and panel sessions on

  • WATER QUALITY: Desalination, wastewater treatment, zero liquid discharge systems, water fouling
  • AIR QUALITY: Carbon capture, sulfur reduction, indoor air quality, combustion systems NOx reduction, alternative refrigerants
  • RENEWABLE ENERGY: Geothermal, direct solar thermal, wind, ocean thermal, fuel cells

Horizons Symposiums, established and held in the early 1990s, were well received, with diverse topics that created a collaborative environment and generated new research and development opportunities. We look forward to the return of this symposium.


Heat Exchanger Fouling & Cleaning Conference XIV

Postponed until 2022

With the continued uncertainty involving the global pandemic, we have consulted with the Technical Committee and made the difficult decision to postpone the Heat Exchanger Fouling & Cleaning Conference until June 2022.

Although we will miss seeing you next year in Austria, our priority is the health and safety of attendees and staff, and we believe that postponing the conference is the best solution to ensure this. We also wish to maintain the continued success by keeping with its current in-person format, which encourages discussion and interaction.

For those of you who submitted an abstract, we thank you and, unless you notify us otherwise, will hold them for consideration at our re-scheduled event.

We remain excited to host you and will provide more information on specific dates as soon as possible. For now, we appreciate your understanding and wish you all the best. We look forward to seeing you in June 2022!
