The article focuses on thermal fluid heaters which provide solution for reliable temperature control and heating and cooling. For very high temperatures like 399 degrees celsius, they provide an efficient source of heat. The basic systems provide heat to a single user at a constant flow rate and a minimal temperature control is required. When selecting the pump and sizing the piping, three-way valves require thermal fluid flow at all times.
