Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH video presentation discusses the fundamentals of plate heat exchangers and describes their design, components, working principles and maintenance procedures.


Many machines, and almost all industrial processes, require some form of heat transfer. Designing machinery to transfer heat in an efficient and safe manner is not a 'nice to have', rather it is a necessity. Despite the numerous processes that require heat transfer, only two heat exchangers are commonly used today; the shell and tube type, and the plate type. This course covers the plate heat exchanger in great detail. 


This 1 PDH online video presentation is intended primarily for mechanical engineers, as well as professionals of different backgrounds who are interested in learning more about plate heat exchangers used in various engineering applications.
