HTF Compact ® – HOW DOES INCREASE HEAT TRANSFER

 

HTF Compact ® rearranges the molecular structure of the fluid improving the heat transfer rate. The abnormal high thermal conductivity is attributed to the presence of nanoparticles that causes a better interaction within the heat transfer regions,  micro convection mechanism due to Brownian motion of nanoparticles in the liquid.

The thermal conductivity of heat transfer fluid is widely recognized as one of the main factors influencing the heat transfer efficiency.

Viscosity is a measure of resistance to flow. The more viscous a liquid, the harder it is to pump, therefore, the more energy the pump uses. The reverse is true for a less-viscous liquid. Increased viscosity is another reason why EG and PG create an energy penalty when used in heating and cooling systems. This is why glycol is only used when needed for freeze protection in a hydronic system. HTF Compact ® will not significantly change or increase the viscosity of the base fluid.

HTF Compact ® will reduce the approach temperature in heat exchangers whether they are water-to-water, water-to-air or refrigerant-to-water. Through this more efficient heat transfer, the energy source whether it is a boiler, heat pump or chiller will run less to reach set points.

In cooling systems, HTF Compact ® makes heat transfer faster, that refers to transferring the same amount of heat in much shorter time (comparing constant flow rates). HTF Compact ® efficiency creates efficiencies at several unit operations of the system by means of efficient heat transfer and energy saving. These efficiencies are proven by scientific institutions and certificated by independent third parties.

HTF Compact ® – EFFICIENT THERMAL FLUID

All hydronic systems contain a fluid as a medium to transfer heat. That fluid in most cases is water. In some cases, where freeze protection is needed, it is a water and glycol mixture. Until now water has been the most efficient heat transfer fluid. With advances in nanotechnology, that has changed. By successfully adding nanoparticles into a transport fluid we now have a heat transfer fluid more efficient than water, and far more efficient than any glycol/water mixture.

Although water is thought to be an effective heat transfer fluid, it can cause multiple setbacks to systems such as corrosion, freezing, calcification and bacteria generation.  HTF Compact ® helps solving these issues and it has been installed already in important real-world applications, with boiler / chiller manufacturer tests. Usually, any system using glycol for freeze protection requires the oversizing of equipment by up to 20% to compensate for the decrease in heat transfer associated with glycols. HTF Compact ® greatly improves the heat transfer of these systems and removes the energy penalty that is correlated with any water/glycol mixture. The percentage of glycol will vary, depending on the climate zone.

Our nanofluid has proven to be stable so nanoparticles stay in complete suspension and never agglomerate over time. HTF Compact ® has undergone rigorous laboratory testing that has been validated by prominent independent universities as well as real-world applications. The particles contained in HTF Compact ® do not cause electrolysis, as they are oxide. HTF Compact ® will not cause erosion or corrosion in systems or equipment. Copper oxide is inert and non-carcinogenic. In short, HTF Compact ® is only as toxic as the base fluid in which it is infused.

HTF Compact ® enhances the heat transfer of water and glycol systems and allows these systems to reach desired temperature set points much faster with less energy being utilized, with a substantial decrease in compressor run time resulting in large ongoing savings in energy costs. Finally, environmentally conscious companies can measure their carbon footprint reduction and demonstrate their social responsibility by using HTF Compact ®.

HOW TO USE HTF Compact ®

 

HTF Compact ® can be added to existing systems using existing coolants or base fluids (water, EG or PG) without having to drain the entire system. HTF Compact ® is added to water, EG or PG in heating, cooling and thermal solar applications. HTF Compact ® can operate at temperatures between -40° F. (-40° C.) and 225° F. (106° C.) at atmospheric pressure. Fluids contained in a closed-loop HVAC system are not considered a high risk for human contact. The clean-up procedure for HTF Compact ® that is mixed with EG or PG is similar: dilute with water and absorb with specified absorbing pads.

HTF Compact ® is manufactured with corrosion inhibitors and will last as long as the base fluid. The particle size in HTF Compact ® is 6,000 times smaller than trace minerals found in regular tap water. The particles will not get caught in the smallest of hydronic system filters.

It is easily installable and durable. Just add our HTF Compact ® in the liquid running in your hydronic system with and our nanofluid will last as long as the liquid to which it is added.

HTF Compact ® can be used on many applications: Data Centers, Energy Storage, Hotels and Resorts, Chemical Industry, Oil&Gas, Solar Energy, Wind Power.
