All About Expansion Tanks

All About Expansion Tanks

Heat transfer systems play a vital role in various industrial and commercial applications, ensuring the efficient and effective distribution of thermal energy. You can almost think of them as the circulatory system for manufacturing processes. Expansion tanks are key components of these systems and are an essential safety measure for maintaining system integrity, preventing damage and injury, and optimizing system performance. As pressure vessels specifically designed to accommodate the thermal expansion and contraction of heat transfer fluids (thermal oil, water, or glycol), Expansion Tanks undergo temperature fluctuations within a closed system. As temperatures rise, fluids expand, creating additional volume that needs…
