Efficiency From Hydrophobic Surfaces

Video presentation by Karen Gleason professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at MIT.

Presentation is about increasing efficiency by using hydrophobic surfaces in heat transfer, in this example it is increasing efficiency in condenser in steam power plants.
Using the hydrophobic surface can increase total efficiency in steam power plant by total of 4%.
