Products & Services



HTRI software products are widely recognized as the industry standard for the design, rating, and simulation of heat transfer equipment. These thermal analysis and design tools are backed by our long-running proprietary research program. Additionally, we license, distribute, and provide technical support for software products from other companies that provide our members with a full range of options for their thermal process needs.

HTRI Xchanger Suite provides tools for a wide variety of heat transfer equipment including shell-and-tube and non-tubular exchangers, air coolers and economizers, heat recovery bundles, fired heaters, and more. These programs are regularly updated as we obtain and analyze new research data.


HTRI offers a comprehensive training program designed for all levels of engineering knowledge. Our workshops, short courses, and webinars increase understanding of heat exchanger technology and help you use HTRI products effectively. We also offer training at the location of your choice and customized to fit your needs.

Proprietary Contracts

Our heat transfer experts provide a range of proprietary consulting services including

  • conduct CFD studies of heat transfer surfaces
  • heat exchanger design review
  • thermal ratings
  • operational equipment troubleshooting

We also provide test services to evaluate prototype equipment designs and enhanced surfaces, measure the fouling potential of various crude oils and petroleum products, and design custom test rigs. Additionally, we have large-scale computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation capabilities that help solve heat exchanger problems.

HTRI also provides customized software development for both standalone programs and interfaces with HTRI products.

Research Program

Our ongoing proprietary research program is unparalleled in the industry. After meticulous data acquisition, we develop correlations and methods which are detailed in several hundred research reports and technical publications, including the HTRI Design Manual. This multi-volume document is widely regarded as one of the most comprehensive sources for heat exchanger design best practices in the world.

Specialty Products, Vapor Infusion

Vapor infusion is an environmentally friendly alternative that reduces fouling and protects heat exchangers and process equipment that use water as a process stream. It safely generates scrubbing, transitory bubbles to reduce the formation of foulants on heat exchanger surfaces while imparting targeted and reduced chemical treatments.
