Water from canals, rivers, lakes and the sea is an extremely suitable source of energy. With a heat exchanger, this water can be used as a source of heating or cooling. In cooperation with partners, Mosman has developed specific heat exchangers for surface water.
The smart use of natural resources plays an important role in the energy transition. Surface water, for example, is ideal for cooling buildings or homes in summer and heating them in winter. The heat from effluent water, purified waste (water from sewage treatment plants), can also be used as a source of energy, which can be done with the aid of heat exchangers. The disadvantage of surface water is that it contains residues, bacteria and other (shell) animals. This causes the growth of algae and mussels, causing heat exchangers to clog up. Mosman produces heat exchangers for effluent and surface water. The relatively large plate spacing of Mosman's pillow plates, in combination with UV-C light to stop organisms from growing, prevents the heat exchanger from clogging up. This guarantees an optimal operation of the heat exchangers and minimizes maintenance.
Many industrial processes require constant cooling. Millions of cubic litres of cooling water are used to cool processes every year. Surface water is an excellent source for this. A Mosman heat exchanger is used to make surface water suitable for process cooling.
Ship cooling is an essential part of a ship and (sea) water is a suitable source for this. Together with its development partners Mosman and Philips, Corrosion has developed ship coolers that combine efficiency with a low maintenance interval. Pillow plates from Mosman are used in these ship coolers. For this application Mosman has developed heat exchangers with the pillow plates that are far enough apart from each other to realize a large radiation range for UV-C light. The Slot Manifold technology enables us to realize a compact solution. This creates a heat exchanger with compact dimensions and a large plate surface area. The advantage of using heat exchangers with UV-C lamps, is preventing algae, mussels and other organisms to grow. In this way, the ship's cooler will function optimally under all conditions and the required maintenance is kept to a minimum. This prevents expensive and time-consuming downtime and contributes to a high uptime of a ship.
