This two-day course covers the design, selection, and sizing of heat exchangers.  The course begins with a brief review of heat transfer fundamentals.  It continues with a look at four main types of heat exchangers that are used in the industry: the Double Pipe Heat Exchanger, the Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger, the Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger, and the Cross Flow Heat Exchanger.

The discussion of each of these exchangers includes a description construction, various methods of analysis, and design considerations.  The course also includes real-world examples and in-class problems.  An appendix of relevant data is also provided as part of the course.

You Will Learn To:
 - Explain the heat transfer fundamentals needed to analysis heat exchangers
 - Explain how to analyze the four types of existing heat exchangers
 - Explain how to size exchangers for a given duty
 - Describe the advantages and disadvantages of each of the four types of exchangers
