  • Special Report: Make the Most of Heat Transfer Fluids

    Even though thermal-fluid heating systems have been widely used for over 80 years, they still provoke a certain  amount of fear and trepidation in users. This anxiety is reinforced by any number of horror stories that usually involve systems that suddenly develop a "problem" after years of  trouble-free operation. This Chemical Processing Special Report: Make the Most of Heat Transfer Fluids delves in to the issues surrounding heat transfer fluids. Learn about:

    • Thermal fluids  -  dispel common myths about hot oil systems
    • Avert oxidation  - how nitrogen can serve as an inert barrier to prevent heat-transfer fluid from contacting atmospheric air through the expansion tank
    • Steam vs. hot oil - a key tradeoff complicates the choice between steam and a hot oil system to heat water

  • Special Report: Heat Transfer Fluids: Do's, Don'ts, and Best Practices

    Heat transfer fluids -- from mineral oils to synthetic and organic-based formulas -- are the lifeblood of many critical operations within the process industries. This special, interactive PDF looks at how plant personnel can better understand various fluids and fluid properties, and track the performance of their entire heat transfer system.
