Heat Transfer Fluid Data Available in Engineering Software
Specifications for Calflo, Petro-Therm and Purity FG HTF heat transfer fluids, manufactured by Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc., have been added to aspenOne Engineering software. The companies expect the additions to the Aspen HYSYS and Aspen Plus modeling software to provide engineers with a range of solutions when designing a heat transfer system.
Aspen HYSYS and Aspen Plus by Aspen Technology are designed to help engineers optimize a heat transfer system, balancing efficiency and performance through modeling. The addition of Petro-Canada product data allows engineers to model a heat exchange system and view heat calculations for each heat transfer fluid.
The heat transfer fluids from Petro-Canada Lubricants are formulated for use in liquid-phase applications and in closed, nonpressurized systems for temperatures that can range from 41 to 619°F (5 to 326°C).
