Duratherm HTO heat transfer oil is engineered for precise and efficient temperature control up to 600°F (315°C) and is a budget solution where heat transfer applications require an environmentally friendly, low-cost fluid to meet today’s fast paced production demands.
Engineered for many years of service, it’s ideal for a wide range of closed-to-atmosphere (inertly sealed) applications including paint, rubber, paper mill calendars, board plants, roofing, textiles, laundry, refineries and asphalt production.
Duratherm HTO’s use of highly refined base stocks ensures excellent thermal stability. Its low volatility also minimizes vapor pressure at elevated temperatures and, unlike most other fluids in its class, Duratherm HTO contains antioxidants*, metal deactivators and corrosion inhibitors to further enhance the fluid’s longevity and help protect your system.
*For critical applications where high levels of oxidation are prevalent please consider Duratherm 600.
Duratherm HTO is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-hazardous and non-reportable. Duratherm HTO poses no ill effect to worker safety.
After its long service life, it can easily be disposed of with other waste oils. Duratherm supports recycling and encourages oil reclamation programs where possible.
In our effort to truly service the heat transfer industry, we have developed four 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.
