HIGH-TEMPERATURE HEAT TRANSFER USING MOLTEN SALTS
Composed of fluoride, chloride, and nitrate salts, Molten Salts have gained momentum due to their advantages and applications.
Water-based HTF is used for most low-temperature applications and less complicated parameters. Owing to its higher thermal conductivity and moderate viscosity. However, this comes at a tradeoff. The temperature application range requires high pressure to maintain the liquid phase, usually between 0°C to 100°C. When the temperature rises over 100°C and reduces vapor pressure, it results in expensive high-pressure piping and pressure vessels.
