Compact Heat Exchangers for Process Industry


Event Description

Compact heat exchangers have long been used in many niche areas such as cryogenics, and the food and automobile industries. The cryogenics area includes typical process industry applications of air separation, ethylene plants and LNG plants. With recent developments in manufacturing technology compact heat exchangers are increasingly challenging conventional shell and tube exchangers in other mainstream process industry applications. This, in turn, has stimulated developments in conventional technology. Both developments, in conventional and non-conventional heat exchangers, have increased the number of cost effective solutions that a process engineer can use to address industrial heat transfer problems. The course is specially designed for participants with process industry background, and covers compact heat exchangers from the process engineering perspective.

Day one – Training day delivered by Dr Vishwas Wadekar, Industry Consultant with over 30 years in industrial heat transfer.

Day two – A presentation by Alfa Laval and a tour of the Alfa Laval Packinox site.

Course Leader
Formerly Technology Director of HTFS Research at Aspen Technology Ltd, UK and Research Director at Paris-Saclay Energy Efficiency Institute, France, Dr Vishwas Wadekar is now Industry Consultant based in France. He has worked with industrial heat transfer for more than 30 years, specializing in compact exchangers and enhanced heat transfer.

Who should attend?
The course is targeted at practicing engineers in the chemical, petrochemical and oil refining industries, who are new to compact heat exchangers or want to learn more about them.
