WHY IS THE MANAGEMENT OF THERMAL OIL SYSTEMS SO IMPORTANT?

Thermal Fluid Solutions advocates for a positive, proactive approach to thermal fluid maintenance via PACT. Regular maintenance, knowledge and auditing of systems helps to minimise risk; ensuring your systems are running efficiently, safely and are compliant.

In a managed system, thermal fluids do not suddenly degrade overnight, they gradually and steadily start to degrade as they approach the end of their practical working life. Regular maintenance eliminates inefficient and unsafe production.

Poor thermal fluid management can have a significant impact on a plant. Fluid degradation can lead to catastrophic events, which put both property and lives at risk. There are also the commercial cost implications associated with breakdowns, replacements and downtime to consider.

How PACT works

We deliver the PACT Partner Programme via a combination of face-to-face and remote channels, with the training element now available online.

The programme spans four modules, beginning with essential sampling, testing and risk identification working through to GAP analysis and improvement planning and ultimately the creation of a bespoke programme designed to improve reliability, productivity and uptime for your specific operational environment.

Members of PACT gain access to an online portal, ‘My Thermal Oil’, which allows operatives to keep track of maintenance, analysis and even training progress.

The four modules of PACT:

1

Fluid Management Programme

Comprehensive fluid sampling and expert analysis can help you better understand the condition of your fluid and the steps you can take to reduce risk. Regular sampling and analysis ensures fluids comply with current legislation and is an essential element of your risk management strategy.

Thermal Fluid Solutions perform a set of tests to understand your processes and identify any changes that you may need to make to your system. This involves:

  • Testing your fluid by collecting a sample and running a test in our own stringent quality- controlled laboratory, or by using a testing report from your own laboratory.
  • Advanced testing and IMPACT analysis to assess the fluid condition and highlight any issues, such as high carbon, low flashpoint.

Above and beyond industry standards, our unique IMPACT analysis supports the proactive management of your system. Because prevention is better than cure.

PACT Training

Our established training provision includes three courses:
Level 1 Annual Refresher Course, Level 2 Advanced Awareness Course and Level 3 Emergency Response Course.

Annual Refresher Advanced Awareness Emergency Response
Operators at all levels gain an initial understanding of system safety controls and fire suppression system Interactive, Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT). This course provides a detailed insight on proactive system management suitable for supervisors and management. This course gives employees the advanced knowledge required to make quick decisions in an emergency and implement escalation prevention measures.

We now offer online training through our learning management system and knowledge hub, which is accessed via the MyThermalOil portal on our website.

PACT Auditing

We’ll carry out a full system review on a three-year cycle under our PACT Total Audit. This will monitor your system integrity, conformity, safety and performance.

You’ll be able to access our quarterly improvement plan via the MyThermalOil portal. We’ll also provide a quarterly follow up to discuss progress and any additional support that’s needed.
