Plastics and polymer manufacturing

Plastics and polymer production utilizes manufacturing equipment that requires a broad range of flexibility in operation. Reaction vessels may be operated at very different temperatures that may require a heat transfer fluid system that provides both heating and cooling. This type of heat transfer system configuration works best when a single fluid can be used to effectively transfer heat over the complete temperature range specified. Eastman Therminol® heat transfer fluids have been extensively used in the manufacturing of PET, HDPE, and a variety of other plastics. Producers have found the versatility and reliability of Therminol heat transfer fluids make them ideal for use in their production facilities.

Therminol 54 is a synthetic fluid designed to provide reliable, consistent heat transfer performance over a long service life at maximum bulk temperatures up to 280°C (540°F).

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 62 is a synthetic heat transfer fluid whose chemistry is custom contoured for high-performance, high-purity, low-pressure and exceptional 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 68 is a high temperature liquid phase heat transfer fluid with excellent thermal stability. Therminol 68 was developed for use at temperatures up to 360° C (680°F) in liquid phase heat transfer fluid systems. Therminol 68 has a boiling point of 308°C (586°F), but static pressure of about 2 bar should maintain the liquid phase at high temperatures.

Therminol ADX10 is a low viscosity, synthetic organic heat transfer fluid particularly recommended for indirect liquid phase process heating at medium temperatures.

Therminol RD is a low viscosity heat transfer fluid particularly recommended for indirect heating at medium temperatures, where low temperature pumpability is required.

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 VP3 heat transfer fluid is a synthetic heat transfer fluid that was specially developed to allow vapor phase heat transfer at lower temperatures than are practical with traditional diphenyl oxide (DPO)/biphenyl constituted fluids like Therminol VP-1.
