An online intensive professional development training course on

TEMA Heat Exchangers
and Advanced Technologies

Cost Saving Management

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

This AZTech training course provides in depth practical presentation of major advanced heat exchanger technologies existing in the world. Pro’s and Con’s of several heat exchanger types are presented and explained with real life practical examples. This intensive and interactive training course provides a good mix of theory and common practices using well selected case studies

Heat exchangers are expected to perform well, but in real life, there are changes in the technological process, and emission regulations, which might result in excessive fouling, high pressure drops and tube vibration. All these may lead to CAPEX intensive replacements. An initial saving with original selection of specialized type of design, might generate higher cost in the future during operation and repair (OPEX)

This AZTech online training course will feature:

  • Selection of Heat Exchanger Type
  • Advanced Heat Exchanger Technologies
  • Fouling Mitigation Technologies
  • Operation and Control Strategies
  • Efficient Maintenance Management

What are the Goals?

By the end of this AZTech online training course, participants will be able to:

  • Make Proper Selection of Heat Exchanger for given Application
  • Perform Heat Exchanger sizing and rating
  • Actively interact with Vendors
  • Take part in final inspection and analysis of heat exchangers
