Fouling and cleaning characteristics of the new surfaces in the form of a plate heat exchanger on a one fifth of the actual factory scale

Once optimum modified steel surfaces were prepared based on laboratory scale studies, initially in the form of a plate heat exchanger, its fouling and cleaning characteristics were tested by INRA on a one fifth of the actual factory scale. The most promising surfaces based on the fouling reduction and ease of cleaning were selected.

Required adjustments were proposed based on how the coatings proposed withstand fouling conditions when considering temperatures above 100°C, and cleaning in place conditions using NaOH at 0.5% V/V.
