Incorporated in 1962, the company conducts studies on heat transfer and fluid flow at a multimillion-dollar testing facility in Navasota, Texas, USA. HTRI technology has been used by companies worldwide for decades to help them design, operate, and maintain heat exchangers and fired heaters.
Based in Navasota, HTRI provides advanced experimental research to the oil and gas, chemical, and petrochemical industries. Our global customer base includes the world’s leading processing companies, engineering contractors, equipment manufacturers, and thermal process consultants. Our acclaimed HTRI Xchanger Suite® software is considered the most advanced available for the design, rating, and simulation of heat exchangers.
Industrially focused analyses performed on our precision research units are augmented by the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and quantitative flow visualization, including high-speed video and particle image velocimetry (PIV). HTRI offers industrial scale device/proof tests, assessments of fouling propensity for crude oil and petroleum products, and Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) certification testing.
