In petroleum refining operations, used oil recycling, gas processing, and alternative fuels, Paratherm provides heat transfer fluids, system cleaning liquids, and technical services.
With an upper range to 675°F, Paratherm HR™ Heat Transfer Fluid, a synthetic aromatic based fluid, will handle the most demanding distillation and refining applications.
Another synthetic aromatic, the Paratherm™ GLT heat transfer fluid gives long-lasting, durable service up to 575° with a lower start-up temperature (18°F) than mineral-oil based heat transfer fluids.
Of particular interest for gas plants seeking non-toxic, biodegradable fluids where there may be environmental concerns as well as cold-start needs, Paratherm™ MR operates up to 550°F and has a minimum operating temperature of 36°F and a minimum startup temperature of -37°F.
Also non-toxic, Paratherm™ NF non-fouling heat transfer fluid has a maximum recommended operating temperature up to 600°F in fired heaters, and a minimum startup temperature of 23°F.
Paratherm also has developed three system-cleaning liquids.
- Clean mineral-oil systems as they run
- Clean mineral-oil systems overnight
- Clean systems running synthetic/aromatic fluids, as they run
