The durability of magnets used in permanent magnet motor technology is important for the long-term performance of products. The LINX team at Aarhus University studies the degradation of permanent magnets in aqueous media and at elevated temperatures.
Heat exchangers are everywhere in society, but they are prone to mineral formation on inner surfaces, causing loss of efficiency. The LINX team at Aarhus University studied the impact of anti-fouling coatings on the unwanted mineral formation in simulated heat exchangers.
Heat exposure is a challenge to many technologically applicable materials – especially when it is part of their operating conditions. The LINX teams at Aarhus University and Technical University of Denmark studied degradation and aging of materials operating at high temperatures.
