Dropwise Technology

Dropwise Technology

Kurita Dropwise Condensation Technology is a patent pending technology to increase operating efficiency and conserve energy in industrial production facilities. This technology can be applied without apploying any additional system equipment. The KURITA DW product is dosed continuously into the steam line in front of the target device creating a water repellent film on the surfaces. Increasing the water repellency greatly improves heat transfer efficiency. The productivity of industrial processes increases significantly. At the same time the steam consumption is reduced leading to less fuel consumption and cutting down costs for water and energy. Kurita Dropwise Condensation Technology is a sustainable technology leading to a reduction of carbon dioxide emission supporting the development of an eco-friendly society.

Applications

  • Condensers in Power Generation, Petrochemistry & Refineries
  • Reactors in Chemical Industry
  • Dryer process in pulp, paper and textile industry
  • Corrugators in cardboard production
  • Vulcanization process in in tire production
  • And many more

Kurita Dropwise Technology increases productivity and boosts heat transfer efficiency in industrial systems and heat exchangers. KURITA DW covers the entire surface with a water repellent film preventing water forming an isolating layer. The result is a significant improvement of heat transfer efficiency leading to reduced steam consumption, less CO2 emission and increased productivity.
