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.
COMPRESS loads the complete HTRI heat exchanger including nozzles, shells, heads, and flanges. This is a huge time saver when compared to competitors that can’t read HTRI files or are limited to loading HTRI tubesheets only.
