Paratherm GLT™ Heat Transfer Fluid

Product Announcement from Paratherm — Heat Transfer Fluids

The Paratherm GLT™ heat transfer fluid is an alkylated aromatic based heat transfer fluid formulated for closed-loop liquid-phase heating systems to 550°F.

Applications Include...

  • Gas processing
  • Liquid terminal tank heating
  • Asphalt plants
  • Plastic production

Thermally Stable

Paratherm GLT Heat Transfer Fluid exhibited almost 40% less degradation when exposed to 600°F (316°C) for 500 hours than a widely used competitive fluid. Although very few heaters expose the fluid to the maximum film temperature for extended periods, this level of stability helps insure that your system operates trouble free during operating upsets.

Low Temperature Capability

Minimum startup temperature is a realistic measure of a fluid's low temperature capability since 300 cps is the maximum viscosity that a centrifugal pump can handle. Paratherm GLT Heat Transfer Fluid has a lower minimum start-up temperature 18°F (-6°C) than any mineral-oil based fluids that cover a similar temperature range.
