The Heat Transfer Fluid (HTF) and the components of a system form one whole. Together they determine the efficiency and service life of the system. Choosing the right HTF is therefore essential if you want to improve performance and system efficiency. Each HTF has specific characteristics in terms of viscosity, suitable operating conditions, rust and inhibition, etc.

How do I choose the right Heat Transfer Fluid (HTF)? 

  • ¬†Select the correct viscosity for your system’s operating temperatures to achieve the highest efficiency and to match the fluid’s system requirements. The optimum operating range of a system is highly dependent on the viscosity of the HTF.
  • Select the appropriate additives: Compatibale with your system or anti corrosion additives for protection against corrosion.
  • Choose the correct contamination control and monitoring settings to maximize the life of the components and HTF.
  • Check whether any special requirements or regulations apply to your system (eg mandatory use of fire-resistant or environmentally friendly). These conditions often influence the choice of the right HTF.
