Temperature stability is essential in a heat transfer system. Consult this collection of heat transfer fluids to find those that will benefit your process.

System Cleaner Liquid

Paratherm SC system cleaner liquid is formulated to dissolve and suspend sludge and carbon lumps frequently produced in hot oil temperature control units where petroleum- or glycol-based heat transfer fluids have been used. Used warm (150oF [66 oC] max) or cold, it provides excellent sludge-removal properties across the temperature range. It can be reused after solid matter drops to the bottom of the container or is filtered out. When it is spent, the fluid can be combined with other common parts-washing liquids and disposed of conventionally.

Nonhazardous Heat Transfer Fluid

With a temperature range of 0 to 600oF (-18 to 316oC), nonhazarous heat transfer fluid can accommodate a range of heating or cooling requirements. Manufacturer's experience includes providing proven recommendations on applications and a Tech-Team approach that identifies system problems that, if left uncorrected, may damage the fluid.

Heat Transfer Fluid

Calflo HTF is a premium-grade heat transfer fluid that provides extended high temperature performance in liquid-phase systems operating with bulk temperatures up to 620oF (326oC). Nontoxic and chemically stable, the fluid does not attack seal materials, is less prone to sludge buildup and reduces leakage from control valves and pipe flanges. Its low vapor pressure and oxidation and good thermal stability result in fewer top-ups, reduced maintenance costs and longer fluid life.
