I want to know how to design a parallel plate heat exchanger. I also need to know what API code, IRB code and ISO14000 code is. I have been in production for the last five years and want to get involved in consultant work.
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Parallel heat plate design, code information22 February 2007 at 1:29pmAPI stands for American Petroleum Institute and the API code contains standards used for fabrication of pressure vessels like heat exchangers in the petroleum industry. Please visit www.api.org for more information. I am not sure about what IRB stands for except as referring to iron reducing bacteria when discussing corrosion of heat exchangers or the Institutional Review Board. ISO 14000 and ISO 14001 are a set of international standards on environmental management. Please visit www.iso.org for more information. The design of plate heat exchangers requires the knowledge of available plate designs and is covered by Hewitt, Shires & Bott in Process Heat Transfer.
