Topic

Concerns on the efficiency and safety of shell and tube heat exchangers has raised interests among the operators in the oil and gas industry to consider measures to improve this situation, especially in terms of design and technological advancement. Thus, this talk would emphasize on ways to enhance the performance and reliability of shell and tube heat exchangers.

Safety and reliability concerns in systems such as the Dryer System can be addressed by using state of the art software to optimize the geometry and material used for construction. On the other hand, the use of realistic data would enhance the reliability of systems such as the Steam Condensate Recovery System. Improving the design of Sour Water Stripper Reboilers has the chance to boost the efficacy in terms of safety and efficiency.

The recent findings and technological advancement in the design of shell and tube heat exchanger would be disclosed and discussed during the evening talk.
