Professional Experience in Research and Development:Execution of funded research projects in the general field of Water Technology. This activity included the following substantial projects:
- The development of rehabilitation of water pipes by controlled calcite coating of the pipes inside. This project included process development in the laboratories of the Chemical Engineering Faculty and participant in the field application of the process in pipes at Washington DC as well.
Development of a portable coating system for rehabilitation of roasted domestic plumbing in Japanese apartments. A pilot plan was performed in order to adjust the technology for domestic plumbing and a detailed design were implemented for a Japanese company. An extensive pilot plan work for a basic research of the activity of scale inhibitors in film system that simulated cooling towers. Research of the factors that cause blocking of water wells and development of cleaning methods. In this work a new monitoring technic was developed. In this technic the monitoring of the blocking process in a specific well is performed threw send columns which are build near the well and supply data about the blockage processes. The development of a New Concentrating Device meant to keep clean heat transfer areas. This process is investigated in two directions. The first, evaporation of water streams until drying and preventing accumulation of scale on the heat transfer areas. The second, using a new method to concentrate of a flowing film of dead sea water by absorbing the water vapors using a parallel flowing film of a concentrated dead sea water.
