Guide To Collecting Representative Sample
The Importance of Collecting Representative Thermal Fluid Samples
If thermal fluid samples are not collected in a representative method you will see artificially high flash point values. This means you will perceive that there is a lower risk from flash points than is actually correct.
This presents a potential risk to your business (its operating insurance), the legislative implications of DSEAR/ ATEX and health and safety and, arguably more important of all, you and your staff.
For typical ISO 32 heat transfer mineral oil
At fluid velocity V(m/s) x pipe diameter d (mm) = 10<
Reynolds number = 2,000 for fluid @ 100°C (212°F) but
Reynolds number = almost 20,000 for fluid @ 325°C (617°F)
