Have you ever heard of the HTRI (Heat Transfer Research institute)? We do not blame you if you have not. But for us, heat transfer engineers, the HTRI is a concept! The HTRI is the institute in ‘the’ field of software for the development of heat exchangers and the simulation of processes in which heat transfer plays a role. That is why the institute is one of Kapp’s most important research, knowledge and software partners. Kapp has been a proud member of the HTRI for years.
The company, founded in 1962, conducts heat transfer and fluid flow studies at a multimillion-dollar testing facility in Navasota, Texas, USA. The HTRI has been supporting companies all over the world in the design, manufacture and maintenance of heat exchangers for decades.
The HTRI conducts advanced experimental research in the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical industry. Analysis are supplemented with computer simulated fluid dynamics and quantitative flow visualization. In addition, the institute tests heat exchangers on an industrial scale, assesses the pollution properties of crude oil and petroleum products, and conducts certification tests for the HVAC sector.
Kapp’s membership was recently extended with 3 years.
