Thermal fluid expert, Globaltherm has acted on industry calls for higher temperature heat transfer products. The company's latest addition to its range is Omnistore MS-550, a molten salt heat transfer media that operates at temperatures ranging from 150 to 550˚C. Specifically designed for concentrated solar plants (CSP), PET and plastics production and chemical industries, Omnistore MS-550 is ideal for applications where conventional heat transfer methods are not sufficient.
Once in a liquid state, Omnistore MS-550 has excellent thermo-physical properties, including low viscosity, high heat capacity and high thermal conductivity. Omnistore MS-550 is used in both heat transfer and thermal storage to maximise power production. The product is also miscible and interchangeable with other similar mix thermal products.
As a non-toxic, non-flammable product, Omnistore MS-550 minimises safety hazards and the need for high pressure equipment.
