This study describes thermal behavior of magnetic lubricant oil under electromagnetic induction. Experimental set up include oil pump, oil tank, induction heating unit, and heat exchanger. It is a closed loop system where the oil pump circulates oil through oil tank to the system, at the same time induction heating unit heats up to the heat exchanger where the lubricant oil thermal behavior is examined. The unit has been largely studied and tested both magnetic and regular motor oil in a laboratory environment and promising results have been obtained for an actual indoor floor to space heating system design.
