Do you design air-cooled heat exchangers? Evaluate their performance? Then this workshop is for you. 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.
- 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
Designers of air-cooled heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance
Course Fee: US$450
Senior Project Engineer, Research, earned his BEng, MEng, and PhD in Civil Engineering from McGill University, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. While pursuing his graduate studies, he taught Water Resources and Hydraulic Engineering as an Adjunct Professor; Bouhairie also worked as a Laboratory Experimenter in open-channel hydraulics. Following his graduation, he became a Research Assistant at the university, gaining additional expertise with CFD in modeling fluid flows. He worked at Northwest Hydraulic Consultants, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where he conducted physical hydraulic modeling investigations and river hydrology assessments. This experience gave him a broad-based knowledge of heat and mass transfer, thermal- hydraulic design, and computational methods. Bouhairie has delivered presentations on his work in Canada, the United States, England, and Brazil; his work has been published in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics and the Journal of Hydro-environment Research.
Engineer, Technical Support, graduated with a BS in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, TX. During her studies, she completed two internships with oil & gas equipment company Proserv, gaining experience with product testing and technical writing. She worked in heat exchanger sales, covering the Houston, Waco, and Dallas/Fort Worth areas, for almost two years before joining HTRI. As a member of the Engineering Services group, she focuses on technical support and contracts but also assists with development of other materials for HTRI's technical program.
