In our annual Cooling Capabilities Chart on Low Temperature Heat Transfer Fluids, we have compiled all the data you need to choose a fluid for low temperature heat transfer fluid processes.
September 15, 2015
When choosing which low temperature heat transfer fluid to use for your process, data such as density, film coefficient, viscosity, pour point and thermal conductivity need to be taken into consideration.
While perhaps not quite as frightening as the famous Alfred Hitchcock shower scene, just imagine the shock of stepping into a hot shower, unwrapping your favorite bar of soap and discovering that it is already dirty.
Typically, heat exchangers are fabricated from steel, tantalum and other metals, fluoropolymers, glass or graphite. For highly corrosive media such as diluted sulfuric acid, the the list of appropriate construction materials is greatly reduced to fluoropolymers, glass, graphite and tantalum.
