    • New Paratherm HR Heat Transfer Fluid: Higher Temperature Stability Leads To Longer Fluid Life (Paratherm Corporation )- August 6, 2009
    • Paratherm Corporation recently introduced the new Paratherm HR Heat Transfer Fluid, which expands the high temperature range for processing applications. The product is an alkylated-aromatic based heat transfer fluid formulated for closed-loop liquid-phase heating to 650°F in fired heaters and 675°F in waste-heat recovery and full convection heaters. With proper maintenance (an annual fluid analysis) the fluid has a lifespan of 5-8 years and targets industry applications ... More...
    • Clone Power Completes License for Engines To Generate Electricity from Waste Oil (Business Wire)- August 4, 2009
    • The license provides Phoenix Power with exclusive North American and Australian rights to develop and sell power generator systems utilizing Cyclone’s award-winning external combustion engines, which will run on waste oil fuels such as used motor oil from cars, trucks and busses. Phoenix Power is an affiliate of Atlantic Systems Group of Harrisonburg, VA, which is in the business of designing and building automotive oil change and service facilities throughout the United States, along with the...

    • UNESCO adopts new international thermodynamic seawater equation (Thaindian)- August 1, 2009
    • Washington, August 1 (ANI): The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has approved and adopted the new international thermodynamic equation of state for seawater called TEOS-10. A complex, dynamic mixture of dissolved minerals, salts, and organic material, seawater has historically presented difficulties in terms of determining its physical chemical properties. For 30 years, climate models have relied on a series of equations called the International Equation ... More...
    • Breakdown In Planck's Law: Bringing Objects Close Together Can Boost Radiation Heat Transfer (Science Daily)- July 31, 2009
    • A well-established physical law describes the transfer of heat between two objects, but some physicists have long predicted that the law should break down when the objects are very close together. Scientists had never been able to confirm, or measure, this breakdown in practice. For the first time, however, MIT researchers have achieved this feat, and determined that the heat transfer can be 1,000 times greater than the law predicts. More...
    • Rocking on with hot rocks geothermal energy (Australian Academy of Science)- July 24, 2009
    • This heat, geothermal energy, lies in abundance beneath our feet. If the energy stored in hot rocks inside the Earth could be tapped and used instead of fossil fuels, it could help to reduce the threat of climate change. More...
    • Internal combustion engines are NOT going away anytime soon (Examiner)- July 19, 2009
    • With all respect to the Green Movement and Cap-Trade legislation, the internal combustion engine is here to stay for quite some time. Why? Hybrid vehicles, in all their glory, still require backup power, simply because large Lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells are cost prohibitive at the moment. More...
