Tittle:
Ultra fast water heater
Summary:
The UK branch of a product development company is looking for novel water heating technology that will be incorporated in consumer beverage machines. Fast heating and cooling down is the key. The solution should be not too far from the market, as large volumes will be needed within a year. The type of collaboration with industrial parties from heating elements field will depend on the stage of development. It may include commercial agreement with technical assistance, licensing, manufacturing.
Description:
The UK branch of a product development company is looking for novel water heating technology that will be incorporated in consumer beverage machines. It will replace an existing low-cost boiler component. The heating and cooling down time needs to be shorter than with readily available solutions.

Companies are sought who can supply this product "off the shelf", or have a solution in development that has the capability to be manufactured at production scale in the near future. The manufacturing price is expected to be <5 EUR.
The exact nature of the heating technology is less important and all solutions will be considered.

The type of collaboration will depend on the stage of development and may include commercial agreement with technical assistance, licensing, manufacturing. The ´technical assistance´ is not limited in any way, it will totally depend on the nature of the method or material or system.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
· Low thermal mass and thermal time constant of <2 seconds, enabling fast response and subsequent heat up/cool down of the water;
· Integrated temperature sensing on in- and output;
· Food grade materials required (where in contact with water);
· Flow rate: typical 5 ml/s (@ pressure drop < 0.1 bar);
· Heater power: cumulatively 1800W (e.g. multiple tracks delivering 75% and 25% of power);
· Max operating pressure - 2 potential options
o 20 Bar, burst pressure: 40 Bar
o 10 Bar, burst pressure: 20 Bar;
· Solutions should also provide the following further detail:
o Certification
o Compliance
o Connections
o Overheat protection
o Thermal shock resistance
o Temperature resistance

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
- Type of partner sought: industry.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: technologies relating to heating elements.
- Task to be performed by the partner sought: to supply the elements or participate in organising the manufacturing of such. The type of collaboration will depend on the stage of development and may include licensing, commercial agreement with technical assistance, manufacturing. The ´technical assistance´ is not limited in any way, it will totally depend on the nature of the method or material or system.
