Webinar: Heat Transfer Optimum Performance in Thermal Fluid Heating Systems: The importance of heat flux and film temperature Date: November 6, 2008 | Time: 11am EST In circulating thermal-fluid heating systems, the rate of heat transfer is typically controlled to maintain a desired outlet-temperature setpoint of the fluid. However, it is the temperature of the fluid film in contact with the heater walls...

In an economy with soaring raw material and rising heat-transfer-fluid prices, fluid manufacturers are getting more requests for high-performance products that will do the required job for a longer time period. As a result, fluid manufacturers are working to develop new products with advanced chemistries and boost service programs in an effort to help customers lower their costs and extend the life of the...

As the price of electricity, natural gas and other fossil fuels continues to climb, chemical processors are more closely examining high-temperature operations and heat-transfer systems to see if more efficiency can be had. In many cases it can, and, as a result, heat-transfer projects are not only justifiable, but downright attractive. "Traditionally we used to see chemical processors looking at their...

      Although water and steam are the ideal media for heat transfer, there are often situations when other heat-transfer fluids are called upon to perform this function in the chemical process industries (CPI). Thus there are, at the very high-temperature end, various types of heat-transfer fluids, such as molten salts and even molten metals. At the lower end of the temperature scale we...

Reliable heat transfer is crucial when operating a process that depends on a consistent temperature. Heat-transfer fluids, however, can degrade over time, resulting in diminished heat transport, thereby increasing the heat up time of a material a target material. Consequently, these problems can reduce productivity, and thus, profits. This was the challenge facing the Farmville, Va. plant of Weavexx Corp...
