Skin temperature is an important variable in heat exchanger design because it may influence both fouling and corrosion. Xist® output reports list various skin, wall, and tube metal temperatures, but these data need to be interpreted correctly. In this webinar, we explain the influence of skin temperature on heat exchanger reliability, review Xist output data, and demonstrate how to use Xist to obtain realistic values. Additionally, we will explore design techniques to control skin temperatures.
