Fluid, Testing & Analysis

Accurate sampling with ‘on the spot’ testing and analysis can give you heat transfer fluid test results and system advice that you can rely on; optimising your preventative maintenance or as a rapid response to system failure.

Continued use of heat transfer fluids results in a breakdown of the liquid structure. This can simply be the result of general wear and tear though this will accelerate at extreme high or low operational temperatures. Poor system design or changes in processing can also lead to rapid fluid degradation as well as system malfunction. In order to evaluate the fluid and system safety our engineers can discuss the tests results ‘on the spot’ with any system implications and corrective actions that may be necessary.

The diagnostic service for Thermal Fluid Solution users

One of our experienced systems engineers will correctly sample the fluid, carry out the laboratory tests on site and analyse the results. He will then be available to discuss the results, implications for the system safety and corrective action if necessary.
