    Xist Workshop  (US$450)

    Instructor: Peter Joosten

    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

    Suggested Participants

    Designers of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance

    Enhanced Heat Transfer in Xist Short Course  (US$650)

    Instructor: Peter Joosten

    If you have cases that are heat transfer or pressure drop limited, this is the course for you. Learn how to use Xist to enhance the performance of shell-and-tube exchangers. Case studies of suitable applications for enhanced geometry and features in Xist will be discussed.

    Key Topics

    • Tube inserts
    • ID enhanced tubes
    • OD enhanced tubes
    • Alternative baffles

    Suggested Participants

    Engineers responsible for specifying or improving shell-and-tube exchanger performance

    Reboiler Troubleshooting Short Course  (US$650)

    Instructor: Peter Joosten

    Reboilers are arguably the most troublesome auxiliary components in a distillation system. Reboiler failure or underperformance can lead to column malfunction and/or shutdown with severe economic consequences. In many cases, problematic operation can be identified and avoided in the design phase by correctly modeling the units in Xist, but this is contingent on the user’s ability to specify and interpret such cases. Attend this short course to practice modeling and review challenging reboiler designs in Xist through a series of interactive case studies.

    Suggested Participants

    Xist users who design, troubleshoot or evaluate reboiler performance

Senior Consulting Engineer & Regional Sales Manager, Australia/Oceania, works with HTRI’s Engineering Services and Global Sales teams. His principal responsibilities include developing and conducting training programs, providing technical support, and promoting membership in the HTRI consortium. He earned a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from Fontys University of Applied Science, Venlo, The Netherlands. Prior to joining HTRI, Joosten was a Senior Heat Transfer Engineer at W. E. Smith Engineering, Coffs Harbour, Australia. His primary role was the thermal design and analysis of all types of shell-and-tube exchangers, air coolers, economizers, feedwater heaters, and steam surface condensers. He was also responsible for the mechanical design and stress analysis of these units, as well as for analyzing and resolving operational issues. His previous experience with HTRI software gives him a valuable end-user perspective.
