Hi-Tec Heat Transfer Oils are high performance fluids intended for use in closed indirect heating installations. They are formulated from highly refined base stocks that are resistant to thermal cracking and chemical oxidation.
Hi-Tec Heat Transfer Oils have good heat transfer efficiency and the viscosities are such that they can be pumped readily at both start-up and operating temperatures. The flash point of these fluids will not decrease significantly in service because of the fluid’s resistance to thermal cracking at the operating temperatures for which they are recommended.
Hi-Tec Heat Transfer Oils are very thermally stable and capable of an extremely long service life without deposit formation or viscosity increase. They demonstrate specific heats and thermal conductivities that provide more rapid heat dissipation.
Hi-Tec Heat Transfer Oils are may be used in open, cold-oil sealed and indirect heating and cooling systems in all kinds of industrial processes. Hi-Tec Heat Transfer Oils have excellent GM Quenchometer (ASTM D-3520) performance.
Hi-Tec Heat Transfer Oils can be used in open installations where fuming of the oil could be a problem. Specific application ranges and advice are (temperature range for bulk fluids):
- Closed systems: up to 300°C
- Open systems: up to 160°C
