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

Thermal Expansion Calculator

When heat is introduced to a thermal fluid the molecules that make up the fluid exhibit an increase in their kinetic energy, the spaces between the molecules increase and the overall volume of the fluid increases.

It is critical when designing any system using heat transfer fluids to account for this increase through proper sizing of expansion tanks and reservoirs. Our thermal expansion calculator requires only density data and temperature differentials (expressed in either degrees Celsius or Kelvin) to calculate coefficient of thermal expansion.
