Heating and Cooling Systems (APO01)

Learn the design and operation of various heating and cooling systems utilized in industrial processes.

Prerequisites

This lesson is designed for participants familiar with process control. A knowledge of standard symbols used in process control diagrams, PID control systems, and various process control strategies is also recommended.

Description

This lesson describes the design and operation of various heating and cooling systems utilized in industrial processes. The lesson also presents the principles of heat transfer and its effect on heat exchanger design. In addition, typical control strategies for various heating and cooling systems are presented.

Objectives

Identify typical applications of heating and cooling systems in industrial processes. Describe the process of heat transfer through convection, conduction, and radiation. Describe factors that will affect the rate of heat transfer. State factors associated with process material that affect heat exchanger design. Describe the design and operation of a tube and shell heat exchanger. Describe applications for heating systems. Describe the design and operation of a fired reboiler. Identify the control loops required of a fired reboiler, evaporator/vaporizer, chiller condenser, and a cooling tower in the proper process diagram and process control requirements.
