We have an experience and expertise in offering superior quality Therminol 55 Heat Transfer Fluid to our esteemed customers. Therminol 55 has an optimum economic bulk operating range of 100 C. It can be used to an extended bulk temperature of 3150 C
The thermal stability of a heat transfer fluid is one of the most important considerations in the selection of a fluid for operation under specific heat transfer conditions. Therminol 55 exhibits thermal stability markedly superior to that of mineral oils used for the same purpose, resulting in a favourable cost/performance ratio.
Therminol 55 exhibits thermal stability markedly superior to that of mineral oils used for the same purpose, resulting in a favourable cost/performance ratio.
Fluid decomposition, both mineral oil and synthetic hydrocarbon based heat transfer fluids, generally results in the formation of volatile products (low boilers) and polymeric high viscosity fraction (high boilers). The relative proportion of low and high boiler formation, and the Liquid phase systems using Therminol 55 are finding use in applications which traditionally used steam as heating medium. Savings in capital, running and maintenance costs are often achieved.
Therminol 55 finds application in process heating include heating chambers in Textiles, Plywood, heating of calendar rolls, tracing of lines at storage terminals, process heating for chemical industry and waste heat recovery systems.
The chemical composition of Therminol 55 has been carefully selected to minimize the formation of low boilers and eliminate the risk of insoluble high boiler formation and fouling, provided proper attention is given to system design and operation.
Therminol 55 is compatible with all types of mineral oils. Therminol 55 can be added / mixed in all proportions with all other branded mineral oils. Routine monitoring of fluid properties is recommended. Solutia sales is backed up by comprehensive technical services assisted by our state of art Technical Centre at Belgium.
