Because water has low viscosity at higher temperatures, it cannot cool itself as it runs through a system. The hotter water gets, the higher its pressure will get. It is, therefore, important to specify the right hot water circulation pump for your process. Click here to determine if your process requires a pump with a mechanical seal or if a sealless pump is a better option.
Education is crucial when it comes to selecting the right valve for your hot oil application. You don’t want to waste valuable resources by installing a gland-packed valve when a bellows-sealed valve is really what’s needed. Click here to read about a processing plant that had made safety provisions for its leaking valve a part of its SOP—because no one there knew better.
A collection of tips and practical guidelines from industry experts on thermal fluids and related operations...summarized advice intended to take the guesswork out of dealing with heat transfer fluids and to improve the overall user experience.

This is a “must-read” Whitepaper that expands upon R. Dean Wilson’s book, “Boiler Operator’s Workbook,” a well-accepted reference tool in which the author asks “Why is an explosion generally less disastrous in a watertube boiler than in a firetube boiler?”
By paying close attention to leaks; diligently avoiding contamination; maintaining components; proper ventilation, and insulation; and regularly analyzing the heat transfer fluid, fire potential in thermal-oil systems can be minimized.
