  • Jan 14, 2020 - Jan 14, 2020 Managing Thermal Stress - APEX Webinar

    Overview:
    Thermal stress is one of the major enemies of brazed aluminum heat exchangers (BAHX).  In this webinar, Chart experts explain how thermal stress affects BAHX's and how to avoid and manage thermal stress before it becomes a problem.

    Learn How to Manage Thermal Stress Including:

    • What thermal stress is and what causes it.
    • Recognizing thermal stress from operating data.
    • Guidelines for avoiding thermal stress.
    • How Chart can assess the impact of thermal stress in your specific application.

    Who Should Attend:
    Mechanical engineers, process engineers, asset integrity engineers and others interested in optimizing performances of their unit.

  • Mar 10, 2020 - Mar 10, 2020 Comments & Insights on Chemical Safety Board (CSB) Report No. 2016-02-I-MS - APEX Webinar

    Overview:
    No one wants to face an interruption in plant operations, but when things do not go according to plan, it’s important to look back, learn and implement procedural improvements, as required. Join this webinar to investigate a real-life case study as Chart’s expert explores how the June 2016 incident occurred and explains the resulting recommended maintenance and reliability program improvements.

    Benefits:

    • Learn from a case study on a field incident
    • Examine the key means to monitor equipment performance and use it to guide operations
    • Understand the impact of thermal fatigue and cumulative fatigue
    • Learn about the importance of operational guidelines and how to work within them

    Who Should Attend:
    Engineers and other energy industry professionals involved in maintenance and reliability who want to better understand BAHX, and decision makers involved in using BAHX technology.

  • May 12, 2020 - May 12, 2020 Smart Layer® – APEX Webinar

    Overview:
    In this webinar you will learn about a new technology capable of providing early detection of end of service life for BAHX. Operating outside manufacturer’s guidelines can result in thermal fatigue damage leading to unplanned shutdowns. Chart has developed a new solution to detect fatigue damage before it results in external leaks, which means plans for remedial action can be taken without the significant cost and upset of an emergency shutdown. We will also review BAHX best practice to help you avoid operating conditions that cause thermal stress in the first place.

    Benefits:

    • Learn about an innovative new feature to help mitigate shutdown risk.
    • Gain a better understanding of the conditions that may induce thermal fatigue.
    • Learn how to proceed when a BAHX is near the end of its service life.


    Who Should Attend:
    Engineers, purchasers, plant operators and all those keen to maximize the life of BAHX solutions in your operation.
