Water is nature’s heat transfer fluid, a liquid used since the dawn of time to heat and cool. It freezes at 32°F (0°C) and boils at 212°F (100°C). To extend the liquid range, other chemicals are added such as ethylene and propylene glycol.
To evaluate oxidation response of various commercially available heat transfer fluids, an oxidation stress test was developed to compare one synthetic aromatic-based heat transfer fluid with other thermic fluids.

Many food products undergo a presumed kill step during production using time and temperature correlations, yet most food processors lack the scientific proof that ensures consumer safety. A manufacturer of thermal processing equipment has addressed that breach.
Wisconsin Oven purchased a vacant commercial building adjacent to its existing facility in East Troy, Wis., and will invest $1.5 million to expand the Blue M laboratory oven line and provide additional manufacturing space.
CombiTherm Plus provides efficient transfer of hot oil or hot water in applications such as injection molding, chemical processing, asphalt and tar processing, deep-frying systems, steam generators, fuel heaters and heat recovery systems.
Used for curing epoxy, No. 942 is a gas-fired, 350°F (177°C) walk-in batch oven. Workspace dimensions measure 84 x 144 x 108", and 400,000 BTU/hr are installed in a modulating natural gas burner to heat the unit.
