A well-operated heat-transfer-fluid system can enable efficient production, fewer shut-downs, less maintenance time and lower costs. In order to maintain a sound heat-transfer system, it is critical that the fluid is well cared for and, when the fluid reaches the end of its life, that it is efficiently changed out for new fluid. As fluid is used and ages, it can degrade to a point where it is no longer providing sufficient heat transfer for the process. When this occurs, the fluid must be...
