Did you know there are many options to consider when selecting thermal fluids?

  1. Temperature is Everything – match your bulk temperature but also consider film temperature, heater type
  2. Controlling Oxidation – high temperature air exposure can destroy the wrong fluid quickly
  3. Maximizing Fluid Life – short-term or long-term use – invest wisely
  4. Availability is Critical – thermal fluids are often critical to production – how long can you wait for your thermal fluid to ship?
  5. Reliable Service & Support – thermal fluids are maintenance-intensive, but can your vendor help you if there are problem

Heat Transfer Coefficient Calculator

Being able to efficiently add or remove heat is the primary function of a thermal fluid. The heat transfer coefficient is the calculated amount of heat that passes between the thermal fluid to or from any given surface it comes in contact with by way of convection – with the driving force behind the transfer of heat being the temperature differential between the two. This calculator will help estimate your heat transfer coefficient, pressure drop and Reynolds number for a basic pipe or tube model.
