ASME® UHX and TEMA Heat Exchanger Mechanical Design

The heat exchanger software option adds ASME UHX and TEMA shell and tube mechanical design calculations, drawings and reports to COMPRESS. Up to eight design\hydrotest conditions can be investigated for fixed, u-tube, kettle and floating tubesheet style exchangers. Both horizontal and vertical heat exchangers can be modeled. Features include:

  • ASME UHX and TEMA tubesheet thickness calculations and reports

  • The Codeware Interface for automatic heat exchanger drawing generation

  • API 660 nozzle loadings

  • Tube bundle removal pulling force analysis

  • ASME UHX shell bands

  • TEMA 9th Edition FEA expansion joint calculations
  • ASME UHX elastic-plastic analysis

  • Appendix 5 flanged and flued expansion joints

  • Appendix 26 bellows expansion joints
  • Appendix A tube-to-tubesheet joint calculations

  • Tubesheet layout capability including tube perimeter and un-tubed lane calculations

  • Pass partitions modeled up to eight passes

  • Read/write interface with the HTRI Xchanger Suite Xist®

COMPRESS includes the Codeware Interface which automatically generates tube bundle and other detail drawings

COMPRESS pressure vessel software designs can be imported into SOLIDWORKS and Inventor via the Codeware Interface

Produce Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Drawings

The Codeware Interface® (CWI) is a no extra cost add-in that imports COMPRESS designs into Inventor® and SOLIDWORKS®. It manages the imported equipment data and produces pressure vessel and heat exchanger drawings automatically. The CWI also supports advanced smart solid modeling techniques including nozzle Mates as well as Assembly Representations (Inventor), Assembly Configurations (SOLIDWORKS), “features” 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.

Drafter 3D creates drawings from COMPRESS designs and is included with the CWI at no additional cost.
COMPRESS can import and export TEMA and ASME UHX shell and tube heat exchangers from HTRI

Import HTRI® Files Into COMPRESS

The COMPRESS heat exchanger option includes a read/write interface with HTRI’s Xchanger Suite Xist®. This saves time and enhances collaboration between Mechanical and Thermal Designers. The Codeware HTRI interface imports HTRI thermal designs and checks them for mechanical interferences and ASME Code compliance. It is also bi-directional so the effect of mechanical changes on the thermal rating can be determined from within COMPRESS directly. To accomplish this, COMPRESS uses HTRI’s native API not the obsolete (no longer supported) HTRI .dbo text file format.

Create ASME UHX and TEMA Heat Exchanger Cost Estimates

The COSTER Excel add-in imports COMPRESS designs and creates customizable cost estimates in spreadsheet format. COSTER organizes equipment into purchased and fabricated components and groups identical pieces into convenient lists. It estimates labor using a cost factor system that can be adjusted to suit your shop practices. COSTER is included with the purchase of COMPRESS.
