Drinking water temperature in domestic systems
Andreas Moerman wins KNW Master’s Thesis Award
Andreas Moerman, a researcher with KWR’s Water Infrastructure team, wins the KNW Master’s Thesis Award for 2013 with his thesis entitled “Drinking water temperature modelling in domestic systems”. The two other nominees for the prize, Kimberly Learbuch and Heleen Verschueren also work or have worked at KWR.
Moerman works on the development of a method to model water temperature in domestic drinking water systems. The temperature and the quality of the water we draw from our taps is mainly a function of the time we open the tap and the volume of water we draw. The water temperature can increase a few degrees Celsius between the water meter and the tap point.
