Dear Engineer..

I am looking for another suitable heat transfer fluid for NTC Thermistor products.

High Dielectric constant (at 25°C > 1.9)/High Thermal conductivity

Low viscosity (approximately; 2.4 cSt or lower) , Range Temperature => -40°C – 200°C , High Flash Point , No Odor , No Oil , Low Cost. OPENED SYSTEM, Medium is Bath (thermostat)

Recently, we are using fluorocarbon based for heat transfer fluid/dielectric fluid.

can someone recommend me heat transfer fluid as the spesifications i mentioned above.

Hello engineers

I am an energetic engineer and a JAVA programmer

We have recently developed a numerical desk top application, it can resolve 2D planar and axisymmetric heat conduction problems, it is a work of one year, we compared our results with some analytical and numerical solutions it gives good precision and fast resolution

I wish to publish my work

how to find out overall heat transfer co efficient for shell and coil type ice making machine?
Comment by Morteza Hashemi on January 23, 2010 at 12:07am
Hi, i am looking for an epoxy resin that is most efficient for heat transfer from coolant fluid to a sensing element such as a NTC thermistor in a temperature sensor. can someone tell me what material is most efficient for this application....

thanks for feedback Henryk - going to update group name.
Comment by Henryk Sienkaniec on December 15, 2009 at 11:52am
heat transfer fluid is one technical term more often used, in high temperature as well as low temperature manufacturing applications.

Thanks Marschall, this very important subject for me especialy for mfg. application, such as removing heath from lubricants to prevent their rapid deterioration, and beacouse of overheating, can and will couse failure in moving working componnents.
