HTRI Xchanger Suite Educational

Download information sheet

HTRI Xchanger Suite® Educational is a version of Xchanger Suite customized for use by educational institutions. Supported by extensive data collected for 60 years on our industrial-scale heat transfer equipment, this software quickly and accurately handles heat exchanger calculations.

Included in this single-integrated environment are three powerful design, rating, and performance simulation modules:

  • Xace - crossflow heat exchangers (air coolers and heat recovery bundles)
  • Xist - shell-and-tube heat exchangers
  • Xphe - compact heat exchangers (plate-and-frame)

Please note that licenses for HTRI Xchanger Suite Educational do not include access to any of our commercial products such as eLibrary, Service Packs, or the HTRI Design Manual.

Program Capabilities

Cross flow (Xace)

  • Design, rate, and simulate air-cooled heat exchangers (with fans on or off), heat recovery bundles, and natural draft exchangers.
  • Enter any tubeside and outside process conditions.
  • Access many special features, such as
    • links to vendor-supplied fan selection software
    • outside maldistribution (of both inlet air flow and temperature)
    • multiple services in one bay
Multiple series in one bay

Shell-and-tube (Xist)

  • Design, rate, and simulate shell-and-tube exchangers.
  • Evaluate geometries including
    • TEMA E, F, G, H, J, K, and X shells
    • kettle and thermosiphon reboilers including piping
    • falling film evaporators
    • tubeside reflux condensers
  • Analyze single-phase, condensation, and boiling processes.
  • Preview rigorous tube layout using interactive drawing shown to scale.

Compact (Xphe)

  • Design, rate, and simulate plate-and-frame exchangers.
  • Calculate each plate channel incrementally using local properties and process conditions.
  • Use unique research-based port maldistribution procedure to determine flow through each plate channel.
  • Analyze single-phase, condensation, and boiling processes.
