Gas Processing

In petroleum refining operations, used oil recycling, gas processing, and alternative fuels, Paratherm provides heat transfer fluids, system cleaning liquids, and technical services.

With an upper range to 357°C, Paratherm HR™ Heat Transfer Fluid, a synthetic aromatic based fluid, will handle the most demanding distillation and refining applications.

Another synthetic aromatic, the Paratherm™ GLT heat transfer fluid gives long-lasting, durable service up to 301°C with a lower start-up temperature (-7.77778°C) than mineral-oil based heat transfer fluids.

Of particular interest for gas plants seeking non-toxic, biodegradable fluids where there may be environmental concerns as well as cold-start needs, Paratherm™ MR operates up to 287.778°C and has a minimum operating temperature of 2°C and a minimum startup temperature of -2°C.

Also non-toxic, Paratherm™ NF non-fouling heat transfer fluid has a maximum recommended operating temperature up to 315°C in fired heaters, and a minimum startup temperature of -5°C.

Paratherm also has developed three system-cleaning liquids.

  • Clean mineral-oil systems as they run
  • Clean mineral-oil systems overnight
  • Clean systems running synthetic/aromatic fluids, as they run
