The Problem

Routine testing and analysis showed a change in the condition of the thermal fluid. The flash point was reduced due to the production of light ends.

What Tulip wanted to achieve

A safe compliant system was of paramount importance so that production targets could be met.

The Global Heat Transfer solution

The Thermocare lifecycle maintenance programme was set up which included routine thermal fluid testing and analysis and the deployment of remedial interventions when the test results showed a change in fluid condition.

Light ends removal kits were installed when the thermal fluid test results showed low flash points. The light ends removal kit continuously removes the volatile light ends as they are produced to ensure the thermal fluid condition remain in a safe condition.

The ongoing routine live hot sample analysis (with no interruption to production) provides the evidence that the system remains safe and that no other problems are occurring within the thermal fluid system.


Improved safety, system efficiency and production output.

What Tulip say

The team at Global Heat Transfer are very professional, willing and able to go the extra mile.
