High Flash Point Diaryl Alkyl Heat Transfer Fluid

 

Application

Globaltherm® RP Heat transfer fluid is suitable for chemical processing applications.


About Globaltherm® RP

  • Globaltherm® RP Heat transfer fluid is recommended for use in a temperature range up to a maximum bulk temperature of 350°C (660°F) and a maximum film temperature of 375°C (710°F) with a high flash point at 194°C (381°F).
  • Globaltherm® RP is a diaryl alkyl composition intended for use in chemical processing applications that require liquid phase heat transfer and can be used in non-pressurised systems. Globaltherm® RP is pumpable to 0°C (32°F) and has good low temperature properties, reducing the need for heat tracing in chemical applications.
  • Globaltherm® RP has a toxicity that is considered to be extremely low and degrades primarily to low molecular weight products, therefore negating build-up of high molecular weight products that must be filtered out of the system.
  • Globaltherm® RP delivers excellent thermal stability for chemical processing applications at the maximum use temperature.
