Heat Transfer Fluid for Pharmaceutical Processing Applications

Choosing the right heat transfer fluid for pharmaceutical processing is important for consumer safety

Pharmaceutical processing requires the use of a specific heat transfer fluid that is designed to work to the correct temperature for prolonged periods. Global Heat Transfer have worked with engineers in the pharmaceutical industry for over 25 years by supplying the correct heat transfer fluid and monitoring and maintaining thermal fluid for maximum operating efficiency.
Globaltherm™ heat transfer fluids are used for batch processing of pharmaceutical products. Heat transfer fluids with broad operating temperature ranges are required because chemical reactions take place at high temperatures and the crystallisation occurs at a lower temperature in order to make the final product. Globaltherm™ products are the preferred heat transfer fluid used in pharmaceutical batch processing.

Pharmaceutical processing requires the use of food grade heat transfer fluids in case of incidental contact with the product. Food grade heat transfer fluids are colourless, odourless, non-hazardous, non-toxic and NSF HT1 accredited.

Globaltherm® FG is a non-toxic, efficient food grade heat transfer fluid that is safe to use in food processing plants and pharmaceutical processing in case of incidental contact with manufactured products.

  • Globaltherm® FG operating temperature ranges from -20°C to 326°C (-4°F to 619°F) in pharmaceutical heat transfer manufacturing applications.
  • Globaltherm® FG is an NSF HT1 accredited food grade thermal fluid
  • Globaltherm® FG thermal fluid is non-hazardous and non-toxic therefore it is not considered a “controlled substance” under United States OSHA, Canadian WHMIS or other work place regulations and requires no special handling.
  • Globaltherm® FG is an authorised USDA HT1 product for incidental contact
  • Globaltherm® FG is made from highly refined group 2 white mineral oil and has superior oxidation properties, as it produces smaller carbon particles when broken down. It also has a lower viscosity than a standard mineral oil, making it far easier to pump.
  • Globaltherm® FG thermal fluid is also used in food and beverage production processes, animal feed production and laundries.
