After the successful Conference at Castel Vecchio "Understanding Heat Exchanger Fouling and its Mitigation", Pascoli, Italy in 1997, it was agreed to hold a further conference in the United Engineering Foundation series on fouling in heat transfer equipment, during 1999. The concept of the meeting was to bring interested engineers and scientists together to review more recent work and to examine ways in which the topic could be developed for the benefit of the process industries and the environment. All aspects of fouling in relation to design, operation, maintenance and cleaning of heat exchangers were discussed.
These proceedings provide a record of the papers that were presented at the meeting, after they had been improved according to the suggestions of the referees.
The arrangement of the papers has been modified slightly to that used at the Conference, to improve the grouping of related topics.
