HTRI Training - Japan

Chiba, Japan | June 25 - 27, 2019

HTRI invites you to a three-day training event in Chiba. From June 25 - 27, 2019 at the World Business Garden for the following courses, presented in English and Japanese:

  • Xace Workshop
  • Xist Workshop
  • Condensers Short Course

We encourage you to register as soon as possible! Take advantage of this hands-on opportunity to improve your understanding of HTRI software. The training will be conducted using Xchanger Suite 8.

Training Courses

Check-in begins at 8:30 AM. Courses run from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily.

Course fees include arrival tea/coffee, lunches and snacks at breaks and training materials (workbooks, solutions booklets, and electronic copies of the case files). Computers with Xchanger Suite are available for use during the training event. Computers may be shared with other attendees.

    Xace Workshop (US$450)

    Instructor: Hitoshi Miyamoto

    Do you design only air-cooled heat exchangers? Evaluate their performance? Then this workshop is for you. Unlike the Xchanger Suite workshops, this course focuses only on air-cooler geometry. Learn how to use Xace effectively to rate and design air-cooled heat exchangers, economizers, and air preheaters. 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

    Xist Workshop (US$450)

    Instructor: Hitoshi Miyamoto

    Even if your work is limited to shell-and-tube heat exchangers, there’s much to be learned! This workshop is devoted to the geometries handled only by Xist. The day focuses on the extensive options available in Xist and how you can use these methods effectively to solve several example problems. You will leave the class knowing how to take full advantage of the features this robust tool offers.

    Key Topics

    • Overview of Xist capabilities and applications
    • Geometry input for shell-and-tube heat exchangers
    • Process specifications for rating, simulation, and design
    • Guidelines for specifying fluid properties
    • Introduction to vibration analysis

    Condensers Short Course (US$650)

    Instructor: Hitoshi Miyamoto

    Learn the fundamentals of condensation mechanisms and how they apply to condenser designs! Apply guidelines to develop Xchanger Suite cases for accurate assessment of performance. This course provides a foundation for understanding the basis for thermal design of typical industrial heat exchangers.

    Key Topics

    • Film condensation in vertical surfaces
    • Condensation in horizontal tube bundles
    • Interfacial vapor shear effects on condensation heat transfer
    • Condensation inside horizontal tubes
    • Desuperheating and subcooling
    • Condensation with mixtures
    • Condensation with enhanced heat transfer surfaces
    • Two-phase pressure drop
    • Venting inerts
    • Drainage

    Suggested Participants

    Engineers who design and evaluate condenser equipment
