HierARchical Multiscale NanoInterfaces for enhanced Condensation processes

Deliverables

Fabrication (metallic textures) - intermediate

Metallic textured surfaces will be developed with chemical etching techniques. This is the intermediate version of the final Deliverable D1.2.

Fabrication (polymeric interfaces)

A thick (>300 nm) polymeric coating will be deposited on a flat metal surface with spray. After the deposition, a plasma nanotexturing step followed by a plasma deposition step of a hydrophobic coating will be performed to create the desired morphology on the condenser.

Fabrication (composite interfaces) - final

Hydrophobic polymer binder matrices will be filled with 2D thermally conductive materials such as graphene, MoS2 along with ultra-long carbon nanotubes. This is the final version of the intermediate Deliverable D1.3.

Setup for distillation experiments intermediate - intermediate

A setup will be developed by MPIP which will evaluate the membrane distillation efficiency and dynamics of all developed surfaces. This is the intermediate version of the final Deliverable D3.4.

Fabrication (composite interfaces) - intermediate

Hydrophobic polymer binder matrices will be filled with 2D thermally conductive materials such as graphene, MoS2 along with ultra-long carbon nanotubes. This is the intermediate version of the final Deliverable D1.2.

Fabrication (metallic textures) - final

Metallic textured surfaces will be developed with chemical etching techniques. This is the final version of the interim Deliverable D1.1

Fabrication (chemical coating)

A superhydrophobic chemical coating will be applied in the internal part of capillaries by flow-through methods. Solution processed particle suspensions and MOF dispersions will be employed for this flow-through coating approach.

Review 1: Meeting Documents

Documents for Reviewers

Validated framework for DWC

A modelling framework previously used for studying wetting transitions without phase-change will be suitably modified. The shape of the droplet during DWC and the pertinent heat flux to the solid substrate will be calculated.
