The first part of the chapter describes deposit formation at a very small scale in microbomb reactors. These allow the determination of the temperature effects on deposition in the absence of fluid flow. The second part of the chapter describes a rotating cell for the generation of fouling in a compact device under controlled conditions of temperature, heat flux, and shear stress. Finally, the chapter discusses the construction and commissioning of a rig (HIPOR) for studying fouling in large-scale geometries, simulating those found in real heat exchangers.
