Condensation Technology

Kurita Dropwise Technology improves productivity and boosts heat transfer efficiency in industrial systems and heat exchangers. The 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, which helps to optimise productivity. At the same time the steam consumption is reduced leading to less fuel consumption and cutting down costs for water and energy.

Kurita Dropwise Technology is a sustainable technology leading to a reduction of carbon dioxide emission supporting the development of an eco-friendly society.

Technology Features and Benefits

Higher Heat Transfer Efficiency

Increased Productivity

Lower Steam Consumption


Kurita Dropwise Technology has been proven to work across a variety of industries.

Condensation Mechanism

Kurita Dropwise Technology 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.
