Heat exchangers are utilized throughout the process industry and can be the frequent case of costly downtime due to fouling or faulty designs that lead to poor operation and reliability. The unit operations classes at most schools do not cover detailed designs of heat exchangers and the new graduate must rely on an experienced mentor or a good set of design standards. This presentation will take a look at the consequences of common design flaws and how to avoid them.
