The GeoHex project has been featured in an in-depth article published by Heat Exchanger World Magazine.
Writer, Ellie Pritchard spoke with the project leader and coordinator, Namrata Kale and metallurgist, Imran Bhamji, who is acting as the technical lead on the project.
The article, ‘The GeoHex Project: Anticorrosive Coatings for Geothermal Heat Exchangers,’ introduces the challenges faced by the geothermal sector and the use of coatings applied to heat exchangers to improve heat transfer, scaling and corrosion performance, while reducing maintenance costs and improving plant profitability.
Such improvements could have the potential to allow unviable low temperature geothermal resources to become viable.
The article provides an overview of the technologies, techniques and testing procedures being used by the project team as well as the challenges that still need addressing before the GeoHex project ends.
GeoHex is a truly international initiative, with 13 companies pooling their knowledge and expertise to improve and enhance the use of heat exchangers in geothermal energy production.
