Xist Workshop (US$400 per person)

Even if your work is limited to shell-and-tube heat exchangers, there’s much to be learned! This workshop is devoted to the geometries handled only by Xist. The day focuses on the extensive options available in Xist and how you can use these methods effectively to solve several example problems. You will leave the class knowing how to take full advantage of the features this robust tool offers.

Key Topics

  • Overview of Xist capabilities and applications
  • Geometry input for shell-and-tube heat exchangers
  • Process specifications for rating, simulation, and design
  • Guidelines for specifying fluid properties
  • Introduction to vibration analysis

Suggested Participants: Designers of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance

Specifying Geometry and Tube Layout in Xist Workshop (US$400 per person)

Xist 7 adds cursory mechanical design features to its previous thermal design features. With hands-on practice based on industry examples, this workshop will provide a window into the inner-workings of the Xist mechanical calculations and their effect on thermal design. After you have completed this workshop, you will be able to more effectively specify geometry and tube layout in Xist by using the capabilities of the mechanical calculations to develop Xist cases from drawings. You will also practice matching tube layouts that you built in previous versions of Xist.

Reboilers Workshop (US$400 per person)

Learn the fundamentals of boiling mechanisms and how they apply to reboiler designs! Work with Xist to model boilers and thermosiphon reboilers accurately. This course provides a foundation for understanding the basis for thermal design of typical industrial heat exchangers.

Key Topics

  • Pool boiling mechanisms including nucleate boiling, departure from nucleate boiling, and film boiling
  • Intube flow boiling mechanisms for horizontal and vertical configurations
  • Subcooling and superheating
  • Boiling with mixtures
  • Boiling with enhanced heat transfer surfaces
  • Two-phase pressure drop

Suggested Participants: Engineers who design and evaluate reboilers

Xace Workshop (US$400 per person)

Do you design only air-cooled heat exchangers? Evaluate their performance? Then this workshop is for you. Unlike the Xchanger Suite workshops, this course focuses only on air-cooler geometry. Learn how to use Xace effectively to rate and design air-cooled heat exchangers, economizers, and air preheaters. All example problems and practice exercises relate to geometries handled only by Xace.

Key Topics

  • Overview of Xace capabilities and applications
  • Geometry inputs for air coolers and economizers
  • Process specifications for rating, simulation, and design
  • Guidelines for specifying fluid properties
  • Introduction to HTRI analysis methods

Suggested Participants: Designers of air-cooled heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance


Course fees:  include arrival tea/coffee, lunches and snacks at breaks, also includes training materials – workbooks, solutions booklets, and electronic copies of the case files
