heat transfer compound, typically installed between plate-type heating coils or with systems that require periodic disassembly, remains pliable indefinitely, allowing the compound to expand and contract to meet the changing requirements for the application.
- Maintains high heat transfer rates on systems having significant differential expansion
- Requires no curing
- Nonsoluble in water
- No surface preparation required
- Remains pliable for easy disassembly
Nonhardening heat transfer compound is available in one-quart cans as well as one and five-gallon cans.
NH is nonsoluble in most liquids. Compound remains pliable and requires no curing procedures.
NH nonhardening heat transfer compound is used where thermal expansion and contraction could break the bond of a hardened compound. Thermon’s heat transfer compounds provide an efficient thermal connection between the external heating source and the process equipment.
Thermon’s NH compound typically improves the overall heat transfer coefficient by a minimum factor of three. By eliminating the air voids that would ordinarily exist, heat is directed into the surface area primarily through conduction rather than convection and radiation.
Typically installed between plate-type heating coils or with systems that require periodic disassembly, NH remains pliable indefinitely, allowing the compound to expand and contract to meet the changing requirements for the application.
