AMBIO coatings for cooling water systems and heat exchangers

KEMA cooperated in the AMBIO project as an End-User. We tested coatings that were developed under controlled laboratory conditions as well as real time circumstances. The coatings are specific for cooling water conduits and for heat exchangers (HE). Especially the latter category provides very interesting possibilities for the future, since the coatings did not have a negative effect on heat transfer. Future coating application in large scale HE has advantages for fouling/scaling/corrosion control and the use of less noble materials, which is cost efficient.
