Thermal fluid technology has been widely used for heating and cooling applications, but the process of selecting the right fluid can be confusing. Compatibility with existing fluids and materials in the system and cost versus performance analysis are also important considerations in fluid selection. The goal is to optimize system operation and extend equipment lifetime by selecting a fluid that meets the system’s specific requirements.
This webinar explains the importance of selecting the right thermal fluid for specific operational needs. Ryan Ritz, the presenter, will highlight the “seven thermal fluid C’s” as a guide for fluid selection and provide an overview of different classifications of thermal fluids.
He will also highlight the challenges of operating in extreme temperatures and the importance of considering factors such as temperature capability, thermal stability, heat transfer efficiency, and product purity.
