Mineral-Based Heat Transfer Fluids are formulated from the highest quality petroleum bases and provide excellent thermal stability and resistance to cracking and sludge formation when used in heating installations.
Highly refined mineral oil base stocks exhibit excellent heat transfer efficiency - these oils also display outstanding pumpability at various temperatures. The thermal stability of these fluids allows for extended service life while greatly reducing the risk of deposit formation or viscosity increase.
These oils may not be implemented in systems where there is potential exposure to air in the case that they spontaneously ignite. As with all industrial applications, be sure to check OEM specifications to determine if a mineral-based HTF is appropriate for use.
Some of the applications in which mineral-based heat transfer fluids are used include hot oil heaters, molding and extrusion equipment, and indirect heating systems.
