After covering the basic fluid types, the presentation provides detailed and helpful information on their modes of degradation.  We explore the major causes of fluid degradation, their consequences and how to reduce or eliminate it, as fluid degradation poses a direct threat to oil life and consequently, to a safe and reliable operation.  We will review many important safety and financial aspects of evaluating heat transfer fluids for the best selection that will provide maximum productivity.
