Many industrial processes must heat or cool fluids to produce products. Heating and cooling are often accomplished by transferring heat between fluids, and this heat transfer between fluids occurs in heat exchangers. There are many types of heat exchangers, but one of the most common types is a shell and tube heat exchanger.
In this interactive, online course, you will look at the operation of a typical shell and tube heat exchanger, including startup and shutdown. You will also explore some of the problems associated with the operation of a typical shell and tube heat exchanger.
