Heat Transfer Equipment


This course reviews the selection, basic design, and operation of heat transfer equipment commonly used in the oil and gas industry with focus on EandP production facilities. Heat transfer equipment discussed will include shell and tube exchangers, compact heat exchangers, brazed aluminum exchangers, air coolers, and fired equipment (fire tube and direct-fired).


By the end of this course participants will learn how to:

  • To select the correct heat transfer equipment for a particular application with reference to typical facility process flow diagrams (PFDs)
  • To apply heat transfer principles to design and specify heat transfer equipment
  • Evaluate the performance of heat transfer equipment and recommend solutions to problems
  • About the typical instrumentation and control schemes used by the various types of heat transfer equipment
