Breakfast Forum 2014

On 3rd June 2014, i-STUTE held a Breakfast Forum on ‘Heating and Cooling to 2020 and beyond’ for an invited audience of government, industry and other stakeholders at the prestigious Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, IOM3, in central London. Over 70 delegates were treated to a thought-provoking series of presentations, had a chance to view posters and network over breakfast and lunch, and participated in a stimulating panel discussion and debate.

We would like to share this with you – below you can  view the presentations, see video clips of delegates talking about their experience, see the posters and read a report of the final discussion session.

Advances in Heat Exchangers for Heating and Cooling

On the 8th March the SIRACH Network will visit the Kelvion research and development laboratory in Fareham for an event that will focus on advances in heat exchangers for heating and cooling.

The visit will include a tour of the state-of-the-art testing facility which includes testing equipment such as an air flow test rig, an inner calorimeter room, an environmental test chamber, as well as a connected, smaller air flow test chamber to enable testing of heat transfer coefficients.
