Οριζόντιο μενού


The Process Equipment Design Laboratory (PEDL) was established in 1976 and started operations in 1978, under the directorship of Prof, (emeritus now) V. Sotiropoulos.

PEDL's permanent staff consists of one associate professor, two lecturers, four research fellows and one technician. Currently eight researchers, seven of which are PhD candidates, and one secretary support the research activities of PEDL. Furthermore, some ten to fifteen students per year prepare their diploma dissertation in the areas covered by PEDL, under the supervision of PEDL's permanent staff.

PEDL's facilities today consist of 140 m2 of offices and 100 m2 test ground.A new test facility of 415 m2 however is under construction and it is expected to become operational in the immediate future. After this expansion, the today existing small hot water boiler test rig will be extended and officially accredited, covering water and steam boilers up to 400 kW.

Heat exchanger development and evaluation as well as other departments for thermal and physical processes (e.g. drying, filtration etc.) are also under development in the new facilities.

Additionally, the solar thermal system department of PEDL uses he open roof of the existing building for development and testing of the relevant systems.
