The industry requires precise temperature control from small scale batch reactors up to continuous production plant processes.

Therminol® heat transfer fluids are widely used within this industry, where high performance products providing reliable, uniform process heating and cooling are required. 

MacDermid's experience shows that correct product selection is key to success. Fluid replacement is not only expensive but the corresponding operational down-time can be significant.

We have a long history within this market sector, recommending best fit from the extensive Therminol product portfolio.

 

CHEMICAL PROCESSING APPLICATIONS:

  • Phthalic anhydride (PA) distillation
  • Linear alkyl benzene (LAB)
  • Olefins
  • Alcohols
  • Deodourising Fatty Acids
  • Phenol Production

THERMINOL SP

For medium temperature, low pressure applications

Operational temperature range: -25o to 290oC (-15o to 550oF)

Synthetic fluid that can resist the effects of oxidation 10 times more effectively than mineral oils

Cost effective product offering long term performance

System start up is quick and easy due to low temperature pumpability at -25oC, well beyond the capabilities of mineral oils.

 

THERMINOL ADX10

For medium temperature, low pressure applications

Operational temperature range -56o to 250oC (-69o to 480oF)

Excellent heat transfer values and low viscosity properties.

Low temperature pumpability at -56oC eliminates the need for costly heat tracing

 

THERMINOL XP

For high temperature, low pressure applications

Operational temperature range -20o to 315oC (-4o to 600oF)

Meets the U.S. Food & Drug Administration requirements defined in 21 CFR 172.878 for low toxicity and purity.

Operates at maximum bulk temperature without the need of stabilizing additives reducing associated risks of system fouling.

 

THERMINOL 62

For high temperature, low pressure applications

Operational temperature range -23o to 325oC (-9o to 620oF)

Cost effective fluid for high temperature processes, offering long term performance.

Provides reliable, trouble-free operation reducing maintenance costs.

 

THERMINOL 59

For high temperature, low pressure applications

Operational temperature range: -45oC to 315oC (-56o to 600oF)

Cost effective fluid for high temperature processes, offering long term performance.

Provides reliable, trouble-free operation reducing maintenance costs.

 

THERMINOL 66

For high temperature, low pressure applications

Operational temperature range: -3o to 345oC (27o to 650oF)

High performance synthetic heat transfer fluid offering extended life and very low top-up rates

Specifically engineered to resist solids formation and system fouling, providing more reliable operation and fewer fluid change outs.

Therminol 66 has made its reputation for its outstanding thermal stability in operation.

 

THERMINOL 72

For ultra-high temperature, medium pressure applications

Operational temperature range: -10o to 380oC (15o to 715oF)

Specialist properties minimise the formation of low boilers and eliminate the risk of insoluble high boilers and fouling.

Low temperature fluidity properties reduce capital costs related to freeze protection

A high temperature liquid phase heat transfer fluid with excellent thermal stability.

 

THERMINOL VP-1

For ultra-high temperature, liquid or vapour phase operations

Operational temperature range: 12o to 400oC (54o to 750oF)

It can be used as a liquid heat transfer fluid or as a boiling-condensing heat transfer medium.

Combines exceptional heat stability and low viscosity across a wide operating range.
