September 02, 2020 | 9:00 AM CDT (UTC -05:00)


Xchanger Suite® 8.2 streamlines your workflow and offers you more insight into your exchanger designs. This version incorporates the latest design guidance about no-tubes-in-window (NTIW) baffle configurations and annular distributor sizing in shell-and-tube exchangers, as well as the most effective way to model one-fan-off operation in air-coolers. New or improved warning messages notify you about possible issues with high-effectiveness designs or turndown limits that may affect exchanger performance. In this webinar, we identify the most notable features included in this software update and discuss how they affect your workflow.
