ASME UHX and TEMA Heat Exchanger Design

If you need ASME UHX or TEMA heat exchanger design calculations, drawings, and reports then the COMPRESS heat exchanger option is for you.  Up to eight design conditions can be investigated for fixed, u-tube, kettle, and floating tubesheet style exchangers.  Both horizontal and vertical heat exchangers can be modeled.  Highlights include:

  • ASME UHX and TEMA 10th Edition calculations and reports.

  • A Division 2 option that supports ASME VIII-2 and Appendix 46 designs.

  • Automatic drawing generation.
  • TEMA Compliant expansion joint FEA.
  • Modeling of complete heat exchangers or replacement tube bundles.
  • The Coster utility for heat exchanger cost estimates.

Produce Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Drawings

Are you looking for a way to quickly create heat exchanger drawings?  The Codeware Interface® (CWI) is a no extra cost add-in for Inventor® and SOLIDWORKS® that produces vessel and exchanger drawings automatically.  It loads COMPRESS UHX designs into Inventor and SOLIDWORKS, creates solid models and simplifies the management of equipment details.  The CWI also supports advanced smart solid modeling techniques including nozzle Mates as well as Assembly Representations (Inventor), Assembly Configurations (SOLIDWORKS), “features”, “sheet metal”, and “sketches”.

  • Shell roll-outs with nozzle openings, nozzle schedules, nozzle detail drawings, nozzle cut lists, U-tube bend schedules, bills of materials, and more are created faster and with fewer mistakes.

  • Solid models include tube bundle assemblies with tubesheets, baffle plates, tie rods, and spacer tubes.

  • The CWI includes Drafter 3D, a “one push button” feature that automatically produces to-scale drawings.
