Desalination

The global demand for freshwater production is increasingly critical for developing countries bordering the world’s oceans. Several technologies exist, with some utilizing heat transfer fluid for assistance in the distillation step which can occur with the aid of a vacuum for increased boil-up rates. Eastman Therminol® heat transfer fluids are available to support these process needs, whether the energy source is from concentrating solar or fuel-fired heaters. Therminol fluid thermal stability ensures long life for the fluid, resistance to fouling, and excellent fluid-side heat transfer coefficients for consistent and reliable service.

Therminol 55 is a synthetic heat transfer fluid used in moderate temperature applications. Therminol 55 fluid is designed for use in non-pressurized /low-pressure, indirect heating systems. It delivers efficient, dependable, uniform process heat with no need for high pressures.

Therminol 58 is an efficient, reliable, medium-temperature synthetic fluid engineered to deliver exceptional heat transfer performance at maximum bulk temperatures up to 300°C (575°F).

Therminol 59 is a synthetic heat transfer fluid with excellent low temperature pumping characteristics and thermal stability.

Therminol 66 is the world’s most popular high temperature, liquid phase heat transfer fluid. Therminol 66 is pumpable at low temperatures, and offers high temperature thermal stability.

Therminol SP is a synthetic heat transfer fluid used in moderate temperature applications. Therminol SP fluid is designed for use in non-pressurized /low-pressure, indirect heating systems. It delivers efficient, dependable, uniform process heat with no need for high pressures.

Therminol XP heat transfer fluid is an extremely pure white mineral oil which provides reliable heat transfer.
