Optimisation of heat exchanger networks maintenance
László Sikos, Jiří Klemeš
The paper focuses on assessment and selection of individual and combined reliability, availability and maintenance software packages applicable to heat exchanger networks (HENs). A proper choice should be made considering the tools and features required. Based on the analysis and experience with software packages this contribution provides reasons why and when to apply them and the main features that need to be taken into account. The efficiency of complex reliability software in optimisation of HEN maintenance is demonstrated by a case study.
