Introduction

This GLOMACS Fired Heaters and Heat Exchangers: Operation & Troubleshooting training seminar reviews the operation and troubleshooting of heat transfer equipment commonly used in the oil and gas industry. Heat transfer equipment discussed will include shell and tube exchangers, compact heat exchangers and fired heaters.

This GLOMACS training seminar will enable to improve heat exchanger effectiveness and extend equipment’s life span by teaching you the basic principles of fluid flow and heat transfer. Participants will also learn about the operation and troubleshooting of shell and tube heat exchangers, as well as air-cooled and plate exchangers.

This GLOMACS training seminar will provide insight to the design parameters of fired process heaters and ancillary equipment. Additional major topics include instrumentation and controls, operations and troubleshooting, mitigation of emissions, corrosion and fouling. The seminar covers techniques to improve efficiency, run lengths, and safety. The modern diagnosis and control tools in a process heater to control draft or any other important variable will be covered.   

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Design, operation and troubleshooting of shell and tube heat exchangers
  • Design, operation and troubleshooting of plate heat exchangers
  • Design, operation and troubleshooting of air cooled heat exchangers
  • Types, operation and troubleshooting of fired heaters
  • Factors affecting the performance of fired heaters

Objectives

At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Evaluate the performance of heat transfer equipment
  • Identify the best practice operation procedures of heat exchangers
  • Identify the problems of heat exchangers and recommended solutions
  • Identify the safe operation procedures for fired heaters
