Paratherm recently introduced Paratherm HT Heat Transfer Fluid, which further expands the line’s temperature range for processing applications. The product is formulated for closed-loop liquid-phase heating to 650°F in fired heaters and 675°F in waste-heat recovery and full convection heaters used in the gas processing, plastic and chemical production , waste-oil recovery and biodiesel industries.
Jim Oetinger, Paratherm director of technology, saw the opportunity and need for the new fluid based on market research. "Partially hydrogenated terphenyl based heat transfer fluids are nothing new; the chemistry is a proven performer. What our research told us is that there is a need for our core services – availability, fast shipment response and in-depth technical support – that is not being met by traditional suppliers.”
Founded in 1988, Paratherm has become a leading manufacturer of heat transfer fluids, system cleaners and other additive products. The firm offers a range of products (currently 10 fluids and three cleaners) covering temperatures from -148°F to +675°F.
