Heat Transfer Fluid for Asphalt (Bitumen) Manufacturing Applications

Find out more about choosing a heat transfer fluid for asphalt manufacturing

Asphalt manufacturing (also known as bitumen) requires the use of a specific heat transfer fluid that is designed to work to the correct temperature and to maximise product quality and yield.

Global Heat Transfer technical team have worked with engineers in the manufacturing and storage of bitumen for over 25 years, specifying and supplying the correct heat transfer fluid and testing and analysing the product frequently throughout the year. Global Heat Transfer also maintains thermal fluid for maximum operating efficiency.

Asphalt (bitumen) & Heat Transfer Fluid Systems

Heat transfer systems are a key part of asphalt manufacturing processes and storage facilities. Globaltherm® heat transfer fluids are widely used in the asphalt industry because of their high temperature stability.

Globaltherm® heat transfer fluids are used in asphalt facilities all over the world. Bulk terminals used to store and process asphalt use heat transfer fluid systems to maintain asphalt at specific temperatures. Roofing material manufacturing plants, which use asphalt as a raw material, require heat transfer fluid systems for heating the storage facility of asphalt and barges used to move asphalt maintain fluidity of their material with an on-board heat transfer fluid system.

Globaltherm® Omnitech Heat Transfer Fluid for Asphalt Processing Applications

Globaltherm® Omnitech thermal fluid is excellent for use in heat transfer fluid systems which require very precise temperature control due to its ability to operate as a vapour phase heat transfer fluid.

Globaltherm® Omnitech is a eutectic mixture of diphenyl oxide and biphenyl and gives this heat transfer fluid flexibility to perform in both vapour and liquid phases. It is miscible and interchangeable (for top-up or design purposes) with other similar mix thermal fluids.

Globaltherm® Omnitech has low viscosity to 12°C (54°F)

Globaltherm® Omnitech is a synthetic heat transfer fluid for use in asphalt processing and storage, concentrated solar power, plastic, polymer and styrene processing applications which combines low viscosity and exceptional thermal stability for consistent performance.
