ABCO NF DETALJER
ABCO NF heat transfer fluid is highly efficient, thermally
stable and cost-effective. Completely non-toxic, it is exceptionally safe to use
and is easy to dispose. Used fluid can be safely combined with spent lubricating
oils and recycled locally. The ABCO NF fluid is specified in a broad variety of applications, world wide. It is tough and durable with a
proven record of success under demanding conditions, yet is easy and safe to handle.
Unlike conventional heat transfer fluids, the
ABCO NF will not cause hard carbon formation on heated surfaces.
Conventional heat transfer fluids, when severely overheated, will produce sooty carbon at
the film layer. Much of this carbon immediately adheres to the heated surface and
bakes on, forming a crust. As layer-upon-layer builds up, heat transfer and
in many cases flow is impaired. Although nearly impossible to remove without
scraping, sandblasting or using chlorinated solvents, the carbon can ultimately break
loose, and large chunks of it can circulate through the system impeding flows and fouling
components. Where fouling is extreme, heater tubing and electrical elements will
stress and prematurely fail. Under similar extreme overheat conditions, the NF fluid
evolves small carbon granules. These granules remain in suspension and are easily
The ABCO NF has passed Bioassay.
Rainbow trout, fresh water shrimp and Gulf shrimp were exposed to
water-accommodated fractions of the ABCO NF fluid. No organisms died, and there were no
ill effects. In the event of a release, you can use the same simple clean-up
procedures employed for light lubricating oils. Once gathered, the
ABCO NF fluid
can be combined with spent lube oils and sent to the local oil recycler. There it
can be converted into another useful material, preserving natural resources. The crystal-clearABCO
NF contains no chlorinated hydrocarbons, aromatics, heavy
metals, or sulfur or nitrogen compounds.
The ABCO NF fluid is completely
non-toxic. However, do not breathe vapor mists of any fluid (see the Material Safety Data Sheet for further
information on these, and other conditions).
The NF fluid has an extraordinarily low vapor
pressure less than 1/3 of an atmosphere at its maximum operating temperature. This and the fluids exceptionally low pressure drop permit the
designer considerable latitude in the choice of lower-cost equipment.
The lower a heat transfer fluids
viscosity, the less energy will be required to pump it through the system. ABCO
NF viscosity is among the lowest of available high temperature heat transfer
fluids. This means that less horsepower is needed for a given duty, and that a
smaller pump and motor can be specified. And lower power consumption continues to
produce savings year after year.
The ABCO NF fluid is manufactured from
natural feedstocks and offers the same superb metal-coating and lubricating properties as
the finest natural oils. However, any water allowed to stand in piping, components
or especially expansion tanks of thermal oil systems can cause severe corrosion.
Because the ABCO NF is immiscible with water (and is also slightly less
dense), any water can be easily drained from the systems low points, or the
components drain valves. Crack the low-point valve and allow fluid to drain
into a beaker or clear water glass. If you see a phase separation (one liquid
"floating" on top of the other), continue to drain until no separation is
Containers of heat transfer fluid should be
kept in non-hazardous dry areas only. Until ready for use, the containers
tamper-evident safety seals must remain intact. Liquids should not be allowed to
pool on the tops of steel drums. In the afternoon and evening when temperatures
decrease, the heat transfer fluid will cool and contract slightly. A partial vacuum
is created in the drum, and, if the bungs O-ring seal is not perfect, liquid
standing on the top of the drum can be drawn through, contaminating the fluid. If
drums must be temporarily stored outside, store them on their sides.
For optimal performance of both your system
and its heat transfer fluid, we strongly suggest that piping, valves and other components
be thoroughly cleaned before installation. Mill scale, weld spatter and slag, quench
oils, protective lacquer and varnish coatings, and dust and dirt can act to degrade the
fluid, and can damage pumps and valves. And lodging in restrictions, these
contaminants can easily create the same low flow conditions that cause premature failure
of systems and fluid.
Immediately after completing installation of
the system, we suggest you purge with inert gas. Such purging can eliminate air and
water vapor, and can substantially reduce corrosion. And while purging, you can leak
test the system using simple soap-bubble detection methods. Finally, when you charge
the system, any gas that becomes dissolved in the fluid will be inert, and fluid oxidation
at start-up will be almost nil.
When charging the system, we suggest you fill
from the bottom (a point near pump suction) using a small positive displacement pump
not the system pump. Charging from the systems low point can help
reduce trapped air in the system, which will substantially reduce the entrainment of gas
bubbles and resultant pump cavitation.
Because Paratherm heat transfer fluids are
produced from natural U.S. feedstocks, they are exceptionally safe to use. Easy to
dispose, used Paratherm fluids can be safely combined with spent lubricating oils and
recycled locally. Paratherm strongly encourages recycling
of used heat transfer fluid to conserve natural resources and to minimize the problem of
liquid waste in landfills.
Overheating, oxidation and contamination of
your heat transfer fluid can significantly reduce its ability to perform. Product
quality will suffer, and in severe cases considerable damage to your thermal oil system
can result. Periodic analysis of your fluid can allow you to detect problems in the
early stages and achieve substantial savings.
We thoroughly test each batch of heat
transfer fluid to ensure absolute conformance to tight product specifications. Each
shipment is traceable to its master batch, with test results archived at
Our technical expertise is available to you
in the conceptual stage, during planning and design, and through system construction,
start-up and operation. We want to work closely with you in the recommendation of
proven thermal fluid systems, components, supplies and procedures. We also advise on
system cleaning and repair, should these become necessary. And if your application
calls for fluids that we are unable to provide, Paratherm will assist you with the names
and phone numbers of competitors engineers that can help.
Paratherm has available technical data sheets
covering a variety of thermal fluid and system topics including fire prevention, system
performance tracking, recommended components, draining, flushing and charging and fluid
analysis, among others. AB&CO will be pleased to forward these to you upon request.
