New Design Could Improve Condenser Performance in Power & Desalination Plants

Condensers are a crucial part of today’s power generation systems—about 80 percent of all the world’s power plants use them to turn steam back to water after it comes out of the turbines that turn generators. They are also a key element in desalination plants, a fast-growing contributor to the world’s supply of fresh water.

 Now, a new surface architecture designed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) could significantly boost the performance of such condensers.
