Thermal fluids have proven exceptionally safe in a wide range of industries. However, it is difficult to completely prevent fires in these systems because the necessary ingredients for a fire—fuel, air and ignition source—are present by design.
No matter where you look, you will see that industries worldwide rely on iron and steel as an integral component within projects such as shipbuilding, bridge construction and railway infrastructure. The global appetite for these materials is huge, and for most manufacturers of iron and steel, production is an around-the-clock process.
When a facility’s boiler is seemingly operating without issues, it is easy to put off cleaning for a few weeks, months or even years. But, what seems like a time-saving trick or a way to stretch a budget allocation can lead to inefficiency, safety concerns and a shorter equipment lifespan.
Boilers and heat exchangers are integral parts of many industrial plants. Often, when people think of protecting these components from corrosion, their minds fast-forward to corrosion issues that occur after the equipment is installed.
With mounting globalization, diminishing information asymmetry, disruptive business models, accelerating innovation and relentless competition, industrial organizations are having to adapt at a pace unrecognizable to previous generations.
The service sector is on the cusp of change. New technologies and key trends may affect — and improve — how your facility receives process plant maintenance and other services. Three technologies show promise to optimize service delivery via the use of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies.
Automotive manufacturers can avoid downtime by using industrial washers equipped with monitoring relays that alert operators when water-bath heating elements fail.

Cleaning and surface preparation are important production stages in many manufacturing industries, especially automotive. For example, machined parts and subassemblies must be thoroughly clean before they move into subsequent stages of assembly or coating.
Oven end-users often struggle with equipment that no longer meets their current production or process needs. “Should we replace our existing equipment with a new oven or repair, retrofit or rebuild the existing equipment?” is a familiar refrain.
Paratherm is excited to offer our 5th on-site training at our King of Prussia, PA headquarters. Join us as our Global Director of Technology, Ryan Ritz discusses technical issues that can compromise the performance of all heat transfer fluid applications—and what you can do about them.
