Thermophysical properties of NuTherm HC & PF

The NuTherm HC & PF series has superior thermophysical properties in comparison to traditional closed and open system heat transfer fluids, including higher thermal conductivity and specific heat, as well as lower viscosity, making it an extraordinarily more efficient system coolant within its operational temperature range.  The NuTherm HC series is non-hazardous, biodegradable, CFC-free, antimicrobial, and has exceptional thermal stability at high temperatures in comparison to glycols, PAG’s, Calcium Chloride, Trichloroethylene and Methylene Chloride (Dichloromethane) making it an intelligent alternative. 

Heat Transfer Fluids Resistant to Corrosion

The NuTherm PF and HC series is formulated with an incredibly robust and efficient corrosion inhibition package, allowing the product to be used on most metals including Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Cast Steel, Copper and its alloys (Brass & Bronze), Monel, Nickel, Hastelloy, Inconel, Tantalum, Titanium, Titanium alloys (Ti6Al4V), Aluminium and Cast Iron.  Do not use on Zinc, Zinc-plated or galvanized metals, Magnesium.  NuTherm PF and HC corrosion tests at 80 °C show incredible results of x mmpy (x mpy) on C260 Brass alloys, x mmpy (x mpy) on 304L Stainless Steel, and x mmpy (x mpy) on AL1100 Aluminium. 
NuThem PF and HC does not produce pitting corrosion on Aluminium alloys like other Potassium Formate open or closed bath heat transfer fluids.

*mmpy = millimeters per year; mpy = mils per year (1 mil = 0.001 inch); In general, uniform corrosion rates less than 2 mpy are acceptable for most applications.  Corrosion rates between 2 and 10 mpy are considered marginal and may impact useful life of the equipment.  Corrosion rates greater than 10 mpy per year are unacceptable.
