All example problems and practice exercises relate to geometries handled only by Xace.

Key Topics

  • Overview of Xace capabilities and applications
  • Geometry inputs for air coolers and economizers
  • Process specifications for rating, simulation, and design
  • Guidelines for specifying fluid properties
  • Introduction to HTRI analysis methods

Suggested Participants

Designers of air-cooled heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance

SmartPM™ is HTRI’s performance monitoring and predictive maintenance software for shell-and-tube exchanger networks.  With this software, you can

  • rapidly build complex digital twin models, re-using any available Xist® files
  • connect to plant data sources such as OSIsoft PI System™ and synchronize with Xist to populate with real plant performance data, geometry, and stream properties
  • run either rapid HTRI or rigorous Xist engines for selected exchangers, for single- or two-phase flow
  • easily reconcile and simulate data
  • identify ways to save energy and manage throughput through exchanger cleaning
  • decide which exchangers not to clean at turnaround
  • improve network performance when revamping exchangers

In this webinar, we use a refinery preheat train case study to highlight selected new and expanded capabilities in SmartPM 5.0.

Registration deadline: March 22, 2021 (11:59 PM CDT)

Key Topics

  • Introduction to vibration phenomena
  • Flow-induced vibration (fluidelastic instability, vortex shedding, turbulent buffeting, acoustic vibration)
  • Design options to mitigate vibration
  • Field fixes
  • Xist Vibration Report
  • Example application and case studies

Suggested Participants

Design and plant engineers responsible for the mechanical condition of shell-and-tube heat exchangers

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!
