    • Understanding Heat Transfer Fluid Degradation

      Heat transfer fluid (HTF) systems use HTFs as a heat carrier that circulates through a closed system that starts with a heater and ends with an object being heated. The process of heat transfer refers to the transfer of heat from a higher temperature object to a relatively lower temperature object. This process is maintained until the object being heated reaches thermal stability, and is vital in the... continue reading
    • Three tips for heat transfer systems

      The Oxford Electric Bell has been ringing constantly for over 175 years – so much so, that the apparatus has been dubbed the world’s most durable battery. But after all this time, it is still a scientific mystery how the bell has functioned for so long. For operators of thermal fluid systems, keeping operations running doesn’t have to be a mystery.   Here, Clive Jones, managing director of... continue reading
    • Eight ways to extend a plant’s operating life

      In a previous blog it was assumed that the operation life of a plant can be extended to 25 years. Dr Chris I Wright examines proven technologies to maximise a plant’s operating life. It is a fact that a plant’s life can be shortened by the thermal degradation of a heat transfer fluids (HTF), which includes a wide range of mineral (e.g. Globatherm M) and synthetic-based fluids (Globaltherm Omnitech).... continue reading
