Commercial Geothermal Loop Fields

Thermal Conductivity Testing

What it is

  • Thermal conductivity is the physical property of a material that determines how easily heat can pass through it
  • it is measured by injecting a constant amount of energy into a geothermal bore hole and the temperature of the circulating fluid is constantly monitored for at least 48 hours
  • Knowing the average thermal conductivity is a necessity for property designing large scale ground loop heat exchangers

Experience - Western Pennsylvania Geothermal

  • Performed conductivity testing since 2003
  • Performed over 40 conductivity tests
  • Will travel up to 250 miles to perform tests

Testing Agency

Western Pennsylvania Geothermal utilizes GRTI's lab for test results www.grti.com.
