What should we do facing thermal fluid system?
Thermal fluid systems
To ensure the safe and productive operation of a thermal fluid system, specific steps should be taken such as educating system operators and understanding how fluid degrades over time through overheating and oxidation. Additionally, routine maintenance plays a vital role in the safety and productive uptime of thermal fluid heating units. Thus monitoring and analyzing the hot oil on a consistent basis is important to the safety and success in petroleum and energy applications like natural gas and lubricants processing.
In order to maximize the effectiveness of thermal fluids as a heating medium, fluid selection is also very important. Thermal fluid heater can either be highly refined petroleum based oils, synthetic hydrocarbons, or silicon oils. When choosing an oil to use, factors such as temperature limitations, thermal efficiency, operating demands, safety and environmental circumstances should be considered
Thermal fluid systems will continue to play an important role in the conventional as well as alternative energy processes. Additionally, because we are such an energy-rich country and so many industries have developed their previously “tight” reserves, gas and petroleum processing will continue to boom in America. Furthermore, chemicals, processing, and other downstream manufacturing industries using these feedstocks will see future growth opportunities due to increasing natural gas and tight-oil production and exportation.
