The importance of proactive boiler maintenance

Thermal fluid systems are commonly made up of three key components — a thermal fluid boiler or heater, an expansion tank and thermal fluid circulating pumps. If all these components are well maintained, a thermal fluid system can last for several decades. However, because a boiler operates silently in the background of the facility, engineers often overlook it. Here Clive Jones, managing director of thermal fluid supplier, Global Heat Transfer, explains the importance of proactive boiler maintenance and offers advice on best practice.

Accelerating the shift to remote support

Because thermal fluids degrade over time, regular thermal fluid analysis is a vital part of maintenance in facilities that use heat transfer systems. Traditionally, carrying out sampling, analysis and maintenance requires on-site support from a thermal fluid expert, who is usually a third-party. As manufacturing facilities have implemented new safety procedures in light of the pandemic, it could become more difficult for external engineers to regularly visit sites.

Choosing a thermal fluid for plastics molding

Plastic can be used to manufacture products from packaging to aerospace. Manufacturers may use different methods to create and mold these products, but there will always be one constant — heat. If the heating solution is not efficient, productivity and quality will suffer, notes Clive Jones, managing director of thermal fluid specialist Global Heat Transfer. View article (opens in new tab)

Choosing the optimal thermal fluid for plastics moulding

Plastic can be used to manufacture products for almost any industry, from packaging to aerospace. Manufacturers may use different methods to create and mould these products but there will always be one constant — heat. If the heating solution isn’t efficient, productivity and quality will suffer. Here Clive Jones, managing director of thermal fluid specialist Global Heat Transfer, explains the benefits of using heat transfer fluids in plastic moulding applications and explores the factors to consider when selecting a thermal fluid.
