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.
|Dimethyl terephthalate||Ethylene oxide|
|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.
