How to avoid thermal oil freezing

The consequences of a thermal oil freezing can be both damaging and costly in any application. Frozen thermal oils mean that heat can’t be brought to temperature at the appropriate point in the application, resulting in downtime, lost production and potentially lost customers.

The heat transfer fluid ripple effect

When considering how to maintain a heat exchanger, it might seem logical to start with the component itself. However, the plant manager should consider the whole system and in fact, the whole plant, to keep the heat exchanger in good condition.

The heat transfer fluid ripple effect

What makes heat exchanger maintenance a whole system issue? The heat transfer fluid circulating through it. A typical system includes a heater, end user, pump, expansion tank, temperature control valve and a filter, all of which are influenced by the circulating fluid.

Deadly degrees of difference How small changes in temperature can impact productivity

In June 2019, Müller UK recalled two Cadbury desserts from supermarkets after discovering the possible presence of listeria monocytogenes. To kill off listeriosis in food, manufacturers must ensure products are heated to at least 74 degrees Celsius. Just one- or two-degrees difference will compromise food products and could be dangerous to consumers, as Müller discovered. Here, Clive Jones managing director of thermal fluid supplier Global Heat Transfer, explains how temperature can impact the performance and life span of a heat transfer fluid.
