Duratherm 630 is a high-performance, efficient and environmentally friendly fluid engineered for applications requiring high temperature stability to 630°F. Offering precise temperature control, it’s a great alternative to high-temperature aromatic fluids, at a fraction of the cost.
It is ideal for a wide range of applications, including high-temperature batch processing, chemical reactions, pharmaceutical and resin manufacturing, among others.
Our exclusive additive package, including a proprietary dual-stage antioxidant, ensures long, trouble-free operation. Duratherm also incorporates metal deactivators, a seal and gasket extender, and defoaming and particle-suspension agents.
In the heat transfer fluid industry, cost is always a concern. However, fluid longevity and resistance to harmful fouling are of equal importance.
Air contact is normally detrimental to a fluid. Oxidation can cripple your system and, if left unchecked, will ultimately cause catastrophic failure. Unscheduled downtime due to oil failure has a high cost and negative effect on production.
The Duratherm product line was developed with this in mind. Most other fluids fall short in their protection from oxidation and can quickly foul a system. Duratherm is engineered to give unsurpassed levels of protection and service life.
In our effort to truly service the heat transfer industry, we have developed unique and specific heat transfer system cleaners. Ranging from preventative-maintenance system cleaners to emergency-downtime system revivers, we have a cleaner that fits your needs and schedule.
Duratherm 630 is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-hazardous and non-reportable. Worker health and safety is of great concern, Duratherm 630 poses no ill effect to worker safety. After its long service life, it can easily be disposed of with other waste oils.
