2012-11-28 13:18:12 - New report: Global Heat Transfer Fluid [Thermic Fluid/High Temperature/Synthetic Heat Transfer Fluids] Market: By Product Type [Mineral Oils, Silicone & Aromatics, PAG & Glycol Based Products & Others], Applications & Geography - Forecasts To 2017
Heat transfer fluid is that substance (gas or liquid) which can store heat energy to prevent over-heating of any thermal device by circulating through its mechanical parts and transfer the heat energy produced from one device to another. These fluids have a wide range of applications in the industries that operate in the extreme temperature ranges such as manufacturing processes, chemical industry, automotives, solar power plants, petroleum processing, etc.
This report estimates the global market of thermic fluids/heat transfer fluids till the end of 2017.
