Abstract

The general objective of this experiment is to evaluate the effectiveness of some biofouling control and elimination techniques based on the use of chlorine compounds, tested in a pilot plant of heat exchangers-condensers, supervising the parameters of pressure, temperature and flow. Besides, as a particular or specific objective, it is tried to minimize the environmental impact caused by the different techniques. 1. Introduction and objectives For the team that develops this investigation work, biofouling is "the not desired accumulation of deposits, essentially microbiological ones, on a submerge
