Safely operating and troubleshooting thermal fluid heating systems is the focus of an e-mail newsletter from Duratherm Extended Life Fluids, Lewiston, N.Y.

A recent edition covered “Dealing with Water in Your Heat Transfer System,” and cautioned that water in any high temperature heat transfer system is not only a nuisance it can be very dangerous. It also covered operating precautions, how to detect the presence of water before and during startup, and during operation, as well as safety guidelines and methods to remove water safely.
