What is Thermal Oil?
Thermal oils are heat transfer fluids that transfer the heat from one hot source to another process. This could be from a combustion chamber or from any exothermic process. The main application is in fluid phase heat transfer. Thermal oils are available in a wide range of specifications to suit the needs of various processes. Currently available thermal oils have a maximum temperature limit of around 400 °C. There are Thermal oils that are in use in Cryogenic fields up to -100 °C.
Advantages of Thermal Oil Heater
The reason why thermal oil heating becomes more and more used, are mainly related to these features and arguments:
