Duratherm FG is rated for use up to 620°F and is engineered and manufactured to comply with the demands of food grade applications.
Duratherm FG meets USDA requirements for incidental food contact and NSF registered HT1 and meets the requirements of 21CFR1783570.
This fluid is ideal for any application requiring food grade rated process oils such as food processing, bottling, food packaging, etc.
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.
Duratherm FG is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-hazardous and non-reportable. Worker health and safety is of great concern, Duratherm FG poses no ill effect to worker safety. After its long service life, it can easily be disposed of with other waste oils.
In our effort to truly service the heat transfer industry, we have developed 4 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.
