April 30, 2018
9:30 AM CDT (UTC -05:00)

Fixed tubesheet heat exchangers are often designed with expansion joints to handle the differential thermal growth between the tubes and the shell. Learn how to use Exchanger Optimizer 3 to

                 specify operating metal temperatures and evaluate the cost impact of adding a flanged and flued or bellows expansion joint

                 modify designs to eliminate the need for expansion joints, resulting in more economical configurations

Temperature effectiveness is the change in process fluid stream temperature divided by the difference between the hottest and coldest temperatures in the exchanger. If the required effectiveness is greater than 0.8, non-ideal fabrication or variable process conditions can significantly reduce performance of many exchanger types (shell-and-tube, plate-frame, plate-fin, etc.). Learn about applications where high effectiveness is expected, the factors which degrade effectiveness, and what a designer can do to ensure adequate performance.


Frankfurt am Main, Germany | June 11 - 15, 2018

In your spare time, visit the scenic shores of Lake Michigan just three blocks from the hotel where you can tour the beautiful Milwaukee Art Museum.

We're currently in the process of finalizing the schedule and topics for the technical program. Other elements to be expected this year include: panel sessions, roundtables, and training courses. More information will be available in the coming months, but go ahead and save the date! Mark it on your calendar today; conference registrations and hotel reservations available starting May 2018.

6th Opportunity Crudes Conference

October 22 - 24, 2018

The 6th Opportunity Crudes Conference addresses changes within the refining world under the theme Crude Disruptors: Accelerating Changes in Global Refining. Held in Houston, TX on October 22 - 24, 2018, attendees will learn how refiners can overcome current crude disruptors by devising better business strategies, finding ways to increase operational flexibility, and adopting new technologies to turn challenges into opportunities.

Dr. Aaron Smith, HTRI Group Lead for Fouling, will present the Benefits of Fouling Testing in Session 3: Crude contaminants, incompatibility, and blending strategies amid changing feedstocks.
