Polymer fouling is an undesired and important circumstance in process industry mainly because of the huge costs associated with reduction in process performance, deposit removal and, in the worst cases, equipment damage and replacement. For this reason, it is very profitable for chemical companies to understand and contrast causes and implications associated to this phenomenon.
