Client: Anochrome Ltd
Contact: Gary Bowes

A severe case of oxidation was identified due to excessive heat (beyond recommended parameters) in the header section of a CDX tank.
What Anochrome Ltd wanted to achieve
A safer operating temperature and reduced oxidation
The Global Heat Transfer solution
The tank could not be adequately flushed and cleaned, due to its design, therefore it was agreed that a new CDX/header tank was to be installed rather than a nitrogen blanketing system.
We recommended an improved design to eradicate the oxidation issue. The new header tank was installed and we drained and flushed the system using Globaltherm C1 and replaced the oil with Globaltherm M high performance oil.
The system and oil have run within required temperature parameters since the work was completed. We continue to monitor the system closely on a regular basis.
What Anochrome say
Global Heat Transfer provided an expert efficient service to minimise downtime and loss of output. The system has run better since the Globaltherm M oil has been used and we’ve experienced no reduction in output.
