This level 1 training course will enable participants to master the fundamental principles of the pinch method and its practice through Simulis Pinch for the synthesis of heat exchangers networks.
At the end of the training session, participants will have the required elements to:
•    Quantify the energy performance of a process and optimize it.
•    Easily perform pinch method (« pinch technology ») in order to compare actual heating and cooling utilities against targets to eliminate unnecessary energy use (achieve an energy audit).
•    Conceive optimal heat exchangers networks to improve energy recovery and global energy efficiency of processes
Ultimately they will have a practical experience of the Simulis Pinch software allowing them to effectively practice the knowledge acquired during the training.

Who should attend?
This training session is designed for engineers involved in conception, optimization and analysis of processes and for those in charge of the efficiency of a process. This session is very relevant for engineers facing the energy challenges: energy managers, energy auditors, eco-efficient facilities designers.
