Edward Ishiyama won a prize for the best poster presented at the 9th International Conference on Heat Exchanger Fouling and Cleaning held in Crete, Greece on 5-10th June 2011. The poster was entitled, 'The impact of ageing on fouling and cleaning: Closing the fouling-cleaning loop'.
Edward also presented a paper entitled, 'Management of crude refinery preheat trains subject to fouling', describing the novel oil refinery preheat train simulator software tool, smartPM (smart predictive maintenance). This software, which is based on Edward's work during his EPSRC-funded PhD project in the Department, will help oil refineries mitigate fouling and will be launched by the technology transfer partner IHS-ESDU in July 2011.
Edward is a member of the powder and paste processing group working with Ian Wilson and Bill Paterson.
