Heat Exchangers (UHX), this online course begins with a brief explanation of the various types of heat exchangers, especially those an Authorized Inspector may encounter. From there the course concentrates on the three types of ASME Section VIII Shell-and-Tube heat exchangers: U-Tube, Fixed Tubesheet, and Floating Tubesheet. In each case, the course first describes many of the general design considerations and characteristics. Then, it goes into specific design configurations and the calculations for each type of Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger. The course concludes with testing, marking, and reporting requirements.

Learning Outcomes
After completing this course, students will be able to:  

  • Identify the various types of Shell-and-Tube heat exchangers and Authorized Inspector may encounter.
  • Describe the general design considerations for the three types (U-Tube, Fixed Tubesheet, and Floating Tubesheet) of ASME Section VIII Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchangers.
  • Explain specific design configurations and their calculations for the three types of Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchangers.
  • State the testing, marking, and reporting requirements associated with ASME Section VIII Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchangers.
  • Recall the numerous situations where Inspectors have verification and inspection requirements.

Reference Materials
Although not required, each student may find it helpful to have the following materials (currently mandated edition):

  • ASME Section VIII, Div. 1, Rules for Construction of Pressure Vessels
