TWI has been working as part of the GEOHEX project consortium to improve heat exchanger performance for geothermal applications.
The goal of the project consortium is to maximise heat transfer performance and improve corrosion and scaling resistance in heat exchangers. This would increase efficiencies and reduce costs for geothermal energy applications.
The GEOHEX project team held an online event on 10 May 2023 with a focus on, ‘Heat Exchange and Durability Performance of Novel Coatings.’
Professors Halldór Pálsson and Sigrun Nanna Karlsdottir of the University of Iceland presented details of tests and the subsequent analysis of the performance of different surface coatings on heat exchanger materials.
Sample surfaces were rigorously tested in line with real industrial conditions before being analysed to evaluate any resulting performance improvements.
