Heat Transfer Fluid for Industrial Laundry Applications
Industrial laundry applications require the use of a heat transfer fluid that is designed to work to the correct temperature for prolonged periods. Global Heat Transfer has worked with industrial laundry engineers for over 25 years by monitoring and maintaining thermal fluid for optimum operating efficiency.
Heat transfer fluid systems are used to heat flatwork irons and offer greater productivity per unit floor space. With heat transfer fluid based systems corrosion, condensate return and steam trap maintenance are eliminated and there is no water treatment or discharge problem. One of the key benefits with a heat transfer fluid based system is reduced operating costs through improved system efficiency.
While steam systems generally operate to 350°F heat transfer fluid systems can easily provide up to 450°F.
And because of the low pressures required in heat transfer fluid based systems, the chests can be fabricated of steel rather than the cast-iron required for steam systems. This delivers not only cost savings, but heat transfer is improved with steel.
Corrosion is to be expected with a steam system. When operating a steam system the aim is to reduce corrosion as much as possible, principally through water treatment, which is not only time consuming but expensive. Corrosion also means you have to constantly monitor and maintain other components too.
Heat transfer fluid will not corrode the materials commonly used in laundry systems.
Globaltherm® heat transfer fluids are currently used in a wide range of hotel, institutional and central laundries.
