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 Calculators

Heat transfer takes place through conduction, convection, and radiation. This easy-to-use series of calculators will quickly let you calculate basic heat transfer rates as well as rates for both conduction and convection. Calculate free convection by entering the surface area, heat transfer coefficient, and surface and fluid temperatures.

For conductive heat transfer calculations, simply input your thermal conductivity data as well as surface area, temperature differentials, and thickness of materials. Basic heat transfer can also be calculated using specific heat, mass, and temperature differentials.
