Designing heat transfer systems is a complex process, and trying to identify the optimum solution on intuition alone is difficult. Each problem can have many alternative solutions, with its very own complex economic and performance interactions. Finding the best solution requires careful evaluation of capital, installation, operating, and maintenance costs. Some estimates suggest that heat transfer equipment may account for as much as 30 percent of process capital costs and 90 percent of operating costs for a process plant, making it critical that your design is both efficient and cost-effective. Finding the optimal solution translates into large saving as we will be shown in this industrial example.
