  • Proper heat transfer fluid maintenance and change-out procedures
    With literally thousands of uses for heat transfer fluids it is nearly impossible for any heat transfer fluid manufacturer to recommend an exact oil change interval or maintenance schedule.
  • Lube Oil
    In a plastic container at the gas station to a barrel in a manufacturing facility, lubricating oil is everywhere! Every vehicle on the road requires it. Machines in manufacturing need it. It is used to reduce friction and dissipate heat on moving parts. Made from crude oil, refined, blended
  • Heat Exchangers
    heat transfer for a given size. Standard liquid-to-liquid units have a working pressure of 150 psi and can handle temperatures to 300 F, although the actual temperature difference between oil and water should not exceed 200 F. Special units are available to operate at pressures to 300 psi
  • Heater Selection - Oil Heating
    The viscosity of oils and hydrocarbons varies. widely with type and temperature. Since highly. viscous liquids transfer heat poorly, sheath. watt densities and operating temperatures are. critical in oil heating applications. As a general. rule, regular oil heaters rated 20-23 W/in2
  • Guide to Measuring Glycol Contamination in Oil
    Liquid cooled engines and rotating equipment use glycol based coolants because of their excellent heat transfer abilities. However, glycol based coolants are not desirable at all in lubrication oil itself - Coolant ingression to the lubricant is a particularly nasty contaminant for the variety
  • Rotork valve automation at solar power plants
    as a long parabolic mirror with a Dewar tube running its length at the focal point. Sunlight is reflected by the mirror and concentrated on the tube, where it is absorbed by the heat transfer oil flowing through it.
  • Stainless Steel Tubing vs. Copper Tubing in Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers
    wherever it is feasible." This phenomenon is taken in account for heat transfer calculations. TEMA (Standards of the Tubular Exchanger Manufacturers Association) determines Chemical Reaction Corrosion "... Coking, the hard crust deposit of hydrocarbons formed on heat transfer surfaces, is a common form
  • The New CK Series Rotating Union Has Done an Excellent Job!
    For many years, the CK rotating unions have been well-known as real "workhorse" for conveyance of heat transfer oil in the paper industry - in particular in the hot and high vibration work environment of calenders. Regarding the fact that machine speed and pressure will continue to rise in future
