HIGH-PERFORMANCE HEAT TRANSFER NANOFLUID
HTF Compact is a heat transfer nanofluid additive that provides higher heat transmission and heat carrying capacity in closed circuit hydronic systems. HTF Compact technology, which has been specifically engineered for use in the HVAC-R field, increases the heat transfer rate regardless of the energy source or how efficient the system is. It improves the efficiency of the whole system by transferring energy more effectively.
It is a patent-protected nanotechnology product that improves energy efficiency in a range of applications by up to 35%. By increasing the heat transfer rate of heating and cooling systems, HTF Compact decreases the overall energy consumption. It can be installed, without any mechanical equipment modification, to both commercial and residential systems. HTF Compact is a cost effective product which guarantees interesting returns on investment and short payback periods. Thanks to savings in energy consumption, our nanofluid also helps decreasing CO2 emissions.
HTF Compact is a high-performing heat transfer additive that contains optimized morphology, crystal phase metal oxide nano sized particles in stable suspension within a base fluid. The base fluid is water, propylene glycol or ethylene glycol depending on the level of required freeze protection. The nano particles are Cupric Oxide (CuO) in the 3 nm to 12 nm size.
HTF Compact has been tested and passed ASTM D-1384 tests for corrosion on copper, aluminum, steel and brass, and ASTM D-2000 2BA tests for rubber, EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers) PEX tubing, PVC, CPVC, ABS.
HTF Compact can be added to existing systems using existing base fluids without having to drain the entire system. HTF Compact can be delivered in a 20:1 concentrate, meaning that one litre of HTF Compact concentrate makes 20 system litres of final product.
PATENTED COMPOSITION: Cupric Oxide (CuO) Nano Particles, Corrosion Inhibitors and Surfactants.
HTF Compact rearranges the molecular structure of the fluid improving the heat transfer rate. The presence of nano particles attribute the abnormal high thermal conductivity such as better interaction within the heat transfer regions and microconvection mechanism due to Brownian motion of nanoparticles in the liquid. The thermal conductivity of heat transfer fluid is widely recognised as one of the main factors influencing the heat transfer efficiency.
Viscosity is a measure of resistance to flow. The more viscous (heavier) 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 be a boiler, heat pump or chiller will run less to reach set point.
In cooling systems, HTF Compact makes heat transfer faster, that refers to transferring the same amount of heat in much shorter time. HTF Compact’s efficiency creates efficiencies in more than one part 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.
