: When a heating coil of a thermic fluid heater leaks, what should we do to avoid explosion?
It has to be fixed immediately. Also the reason for the leak has to be investigated. Often it is because the tube metal has become overheated due to poor heat transfer into the thermal fluid. This is probably caused by a buildup of carbonaceous deposits on the inside, which also has to be removed. In turn this is usually caused by the thermal fluid being oxidised. The fluid should be regularly tested for oxidation to guard against this.
