Early detection system of condensation for heat exchanging surfaces

Project ID: CZ.01.1.02/0.0/0.0/15_019/0004670
Funding provider: OP Entreprise and innovations for Competitiveness
Investigator at UCEEB:  Ing. Jakub Maščuch, Ph.D.
Project Duration: 1.10. 2016 – 31.7.2019
Partner: SVÚM a.s.

The aim of the project is to develop and put into operation a system for detection of corrosion-risk states due to the condensation of the combustion constitutents. This system is primarily intended for cogeneration units with an ORC cycle where waste heat from alternative sources is used and operation is thus endangered by corrosion under the dew point. An early warning system is important because of the use of flammable media in ORC cycle heat exchangers and therefore the possibility of damage is minimized.
