HTRI Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger setting plan. Saddles location

(OP)
For HTRI setting plan ouput, what is the basis of location of saddles for Xist design of Horizontal Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers.

(OP)
Request response from experts.

RE: HTRI Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger setting plan. Saddles location

Varies depending on code requirements and TEMA class, so a combination of the two. It does an estimated weight calculation which is detailed in the design manual, which I assume is used for the location of the saddles.

RE: HTRI Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger setting plan. Saddles location

HTRI is not a mechanical design program. HTRI program is focused on the thermal and hydraulic modeling of heat exchangers. HTRI does not have the option for seismic and/or wind loading. Saddles are not "designed" in the program and the estimated saddle locations is just that, an estimation. HTRI attempts to locate the saddles with adequate clearance to the process nozzles, but that also can be incorrect if the nozzles require reinforcement pads, since HTRI does not model/calculate nozzle design on the shell.
