Facts at your Fingertips: Selecting Heat-Transfer Fluid Supplier

By Scott Jenkins |

Lean workforces are the norm in current plant environments. In the context of heat exchange systems, the current situation amplifies the need to select a heat-transfer fluid supplier with the expertise and technical resources to handle non-routine circumstances. This one-page reference outlines questions that operating companies should consider when selecting a supplier.                    Product options Products backed by years of history and consistency of published data carry less technical risk. Early in project cycles, fluid selection often requires close collaboration with fluid experts to select the optimal chemistry to meet heat-duty demands, provide longevity with low lifecycle costs, and limit risks for operational and process safety. Allowing a heat-transfer system to be a testing ground for inexperienced vendors or products that are unproven in the given application presents significant risks. Suppliers with broad experience with established fluids in varying applications mitigate that risk. Consider the value of using a supplier with a large portfolio, proven technical data and properties, and a variety of chemistries from which to choose. Beyond fluid, choosing a supplier with reliable service…
