In another work, Chamra focused on fouling inside smooth and enhanced shell-and-tube refrigerant condensers by using copper alloy tubes (Chamra 2007).
The operating conditions during the fouling measurements were selected in a way in which the test BPHEs operate in similar conditions as refrigerant condensers in cooling tower applications.
