What you'll learn
  • By the end of this course you will be able to identify the common types of heat exchanger (plate, shell and tube).
  • You will be aware of the various designs (parallel, cross and counter flow).

  • You will know the advantages and disadvantages of each heat exchanger type.

  • You will know the components of each type of heat exchanger.
  • You will understand the reasoning for the type and design of heat exchanger employed for certain applications.
  • You will understand how heat exchanger fouling can occur and what causes it.
Requirements
  • A desire to learn.
  • Some engineering knowledge is beneficial, but lessons are explained in depth to allow students to build their knowledge from the ground up.
  • A background in HVAC, the oil and gas industry, power engineering, mechanical engineering, or most other engineering disciplines, would be advantageous.
Description

In this course you will learn about the shell and tube, and plate type heat exchanger. You will learn about the design, components and categorisations of each common type of heat exchanger. You will also learn about the advantages and disadvantages of each heat exchanger.


By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Identify the different types of common heat exchanger.

  • Know the pros and cons of each heat exchanger type.

  • Identify single and multi-pass heat exchanger types.

  • Identify regenerative and non-regenerative heat exchanger systems.

  • Identify cross, parallel and counter flow designs.

  • Know the terminology for both the shell and tube, and the plate type heat exchanger.

  • Know common reasons for heat exchanger failure and fouling.


The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning heat exchanger knowledge. Even if you already have some background engineering knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (HVAC, chemical engineering, oil & gas industry, marine, power engineering etc.), I can guarantee you will have never taken an engineering course like this one (unless you have taken one of my other courses...).


Four examples are given to show how heat exchangers work in the real world.


I use interactive 3D models throughout the course to aid understanding. Check out one of the sample videos to see the difference this makes when learning!


Hope to see you on the course!

Who this course is for:
  • Take this course if you enjoy learning and have an interest in engineering.
  • Take this course if you are interested in expanding your engineering knowledge and wish to learn about some of the most common machinery items in the engineering world.
