Typical areas of application for organic heat-transfer fluids

Our organic heat-transfer fluids are used in a broad array of applications in several process areas. The volume of heat-transfer medium essentially depends on the specific heating or cooling requirements in the relevant process and may range from a few litres to several hundred cubic metres.

In processing plants in the chemical and petrochemical industry

Depending upon the quantity of heat to be handled, a volume of up to 400 m3 heat-transfer fluid is frequently required and circulated in chemical processing.

 

 

Alkylbenzene Aniline
Aromatic separation Caprolactam
Dimethyl terephthalate Ethylene oxide
Formaldehyde Isomerisation processes
Herbicides, insecticides Paraffin sulphonate
Pharmaceutical active ingredients Phthalic anhydride
Rubber and plastics additives Terephthalic acid
Upgrading of coal

In polycondensation and polymerisation processes

Polycondensation exhibits a more moderate reaction sequence and, depending on the plant size, can be adequately supplied with heat-transfer media quantities of as little as about 10 to 40 m3. Extremely fine temperature adjustments are required to avoid discoloration and irreparable damage to the polycondensate product.
