[Workshop] Heat Transfer for Industrial Professionals

[Workshop] Heat Transfer for Industrial Professionals

Course overview

As part of energy conservation, heat recovery and reuse are common practices in the industrial sector. The heat recovery needs to be carried out after a thorough analysis of the waste heat streams. For carrying out or getting involved with such waste heat recovery analysis, a good understanding of the fundamental concepts of heat transfer is very important. Therefore, it is very much imperative to review and refresh the heat transfer concepts in a practical engineering perspective. This two-day course aims to help the industrial professionals to achieve a review of the important heat transfer concepts that will help to sharpen their analytical skill for their day-to-day engineering practice.

Course objectives

Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to develop good understanding of:

(i) Basic heat transfer concepts

(ii) Heat exchanger analysis

(iii) Commonly used heat exchangers in industrial sectors

(iv) Factors affecting the selection of the industrial heat recovery devices

(v) Energy savings and economic analysis of heat transfer applications
