COURSE OVERVIEW

Fired Heaters and Heat Exchangers training seminar reviews the operation and troubleshooting of heat transfer equipment commonly used in the oil and gas industry. Heat transfer equipment discussed will include shell and tube exchangers, compact heat exchangers and fired heaters.

This training will enable you to improve heat exchanger effectiveness and extend the equipment’s life span by teaching you the basic principles of fluid flow and heat transfer. Participants will also learn about the operation and troubleshooting of shell and tube heat exchangers, as well as air-cooled and plate exchangers. This training will provide insight to the design parameters of fired process heaters and ancillary equipment. Additional major topics include instrumentation and controls, operations and troubleshooting, mitigation of emissions, corrosion and fouling. The seminar covers techniques to improve efficiency, run lengths, and safety. The modern diagnosis and control tools in a process heater to control draft or any other important variable will be covered.
