Fouling, corrosion, friction, and contamination waste trillions of dollars in energy, and spoil enough food and water for over 150 million people. Traditional preventative measures are difficult to deploy at scale, and often create new safety and environmental concerns. We’re developing self-assembling, self-cleaning, and self-healing nano-layered materials and deployment methods that will simply and sustainably address these problems, with a focus on food, water, and energy production.
Our unique ceramic-like conformal surfaces are specially designed to combine “non-stick” characteristics with extreme durability so they can be used on surfaces in harsh conditions that are continuously or intermittently immersed in fluids. Our surface treatments can be applied under ambient conditions with a variety of simple application methods so incorporating them into existing infrastructure and production environments is fast and easy.
REDUCE FOULING, IMPROVE EFFICIENCY
Every heat transfer surface in contact with water is subject to mineral fouling and as fouling accumulates on heat transfer surfaces, heat transfer declines, often dramatically. Every year, fouling in industrial heat exchangers causes approximately $3 billion of wasted energy and 1% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Our coatings significantly reduce the rate of fouling in heat exchanges, resulting in improved heat transfer efficiency and reduced maintenance.
EASY, NO-COST, NO-RISK TRIAL
At Nano Hydrophobics we know every location and product presents its own challenges, we can work with you to develop a solution tailored to fit your needs. We have deployed field trials with customers across the globe to validate our coatings in all kinds of environments. Let us work with you to demonstrate the value our products have to offer. Just get in touch.
