Shell and tube heat exchangers are the most important tools in heat transfer process. Optimization efficiency of these tools is always the goal of designers. Now a day there are a lot of efficient methods for selecting the best heat exchanger, such as analytic and numerical methods that everyone has advantages and defects. For example, confront of jamming in calculations by receiving to the local minimums and errors during interruption quantities. Today by entering of simulation and design softwares in industries, the simulation of process tools is so simple. the procedure of studies in this thesis is in these steps: first simulation of sulfur solidification heat exchangers in ASPEN B-JAC software same as operation conditions and then evaluation the effects of changing the design parameters in tube bundle section such as number of passes, arrangement of tubes, number of baffles,…. the sulfur solidification package’ heat exchanger that it’s active fluid is demine water for cooling of package will be optimized till the rate of exchanged heat increases to 15 percent and pressure drop will not affect the operation conditions. The most important note in the correction of tube bundle is that the heat exchanger should be out of service and stopping of production, on the other hand changing in shell of heat exchanger needs to change the piping system and redesign of supports that will spend a lot of time for shut down of plant, so it is out of order for this thesis and optimization of tube bundle will be done.
