Process specification sheet for the design of a shell and tube heat exchanger unit (created Aug. 2013). Both the Excel file and PDF form can be edited to accommodate most designs. Suitable for process, mechanical or chemical engineering.
The design sheet includes:
1. Plant, item and location details
2. Performance and general design details
3. Operating conditions
4. Process fluid properties
5. Construction details
A good run down on exchanger design can be found in Rules of Thumb for Chemical Engineers 3rd Edition, 2002 and Perry’s Chemical Engineers Handbook McGraw-Hill 8th Edition, 2008.
If there is anything I have forgotten or you have found some improvements that could be made, feel free to let me know in the comments section.
