Thermo oil plants – Heat transfer almost without pressure

Photos topic of the month
Water (liquid or as vapor) is surely the most known heat transfer medium for the indirect heat transfer, at temperatures exceeding 100 °C, however, the entire heat transfer plant is pressurized. In thermal oil plants, however, mineral or synthetic oils are used as heat transfer medium. These are characterized – contrary to water or steam plants – in particular by the fact that they can supply heat in a very wide temperature range almost without any pressure.

Alberto Burri. The Trauma of Painting

© Kunstsammlung NRW
Despite being less known in Germany, the Italian artist Alberto Burri (1915 – 1995) – who created works consisting of industrial materials such as iron, jute, and plastic – was one of the most influential postwar European artists. Alberto Burri studied medicine before enlisting as a military doctor during World War II. His unit was captured in Tunisia in 1943, and Burri was sent to a prisoner of war camp in Hereford, Texas, where he began painting. After his return to Italy in 1946, Burri gave up medicine to devote himself exclusively to art – a decision that was directly influenced by his immediate impressions of the war and the defeat of Italy. Burri translated his experiences into a powerful visual language that annihilates the substance of traditional panel painting, redefining it in essential ways.
