Overview:

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
