  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Why Is Mineral Oil Used In Thermal Heaters?
    Thermal heaters, also known as thermal fluid heaters, employ the use of a thermal liquid such as water, glycol, mineral oil, synthetic liquids or aromatics as the source of heat transfer. The medium for transferring heat is circulated within a closed loop system to supply heat to the end user
  • 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
  • Indirect Heating of: Exchangers/How it Works
    be controlled by circulating heat transfer media (thermal oil, water, air, steam, etc.) on one side of the exchanger and the process fluid on the other. If the heat transfer media is hotter than the process, it will raise the temperature of the process fluid. If cooler, it will have the opposite effect, cooling
