Heat Transfer

Remanufacture Of Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers

Customer: Upstream Operator

Location: International

Background

Remanufacture of a feed effluent shell and tube heat exchanger in accordance with the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU module G in line with design codes.

Scope

  • Thermal design study of the heat exchanger was carried out due to no data sheet being available.
  • Following this a full mechanical design was carried out to code, a 3D model was created and a full new set of drawings completed for the heat exchanger manufacture

Solutions

  • The project presented technical challenges in terms of a low operating temperature and sour service conditions. This meant that all materials and welding had to undergo additional destructive testing to meet the required standards.
  • The project was completed in 20 weeks on schedule and on budget, including a full data pack
