Transfer Fluid replaces low-temp silicone-based fluids.

Press Release Summary:

Synthetic Paratherm CR(TM) cryogenic-range transfer fluid provides predictable and repeatable performance in cryogenically driven processes. Fluid properties help eliminate coil freeze-ups. Product offers viscosity of 10 cP @ -88°C and 20 cP @ -96°C and freeze point of <-120°C. Applications include fine chemical processes, pharmaceuticals, secondary coolant systems, continuous process applications, and environmental chambers.

Original Press Release:

New -100°C Cryogenic Transfer Fluid

Conshohocken, PA (April 2, 2004) - Paratherm Corporation announces the introduction of a new alternative to low temperature silicone-based fluids. Paratherm CR(TM) (Patent Pending) cryogenic-range transfer fluid provides predictable, repeatable performance in cryogenically-driven processes. One-hundred percent synthetic, its consistent properties provide improved productivity while eliminating quality-robbing runaway coil freeze-ups.

The fluid's low 10-cP viscosity @ -88°C (20-cP @ -96°C) brings higher efficiency at lower temperatures. Replacing d-limonene fluid in the production of fine chemicals for example, the CR Fluid reduced process batch time by over 50%.

The CR Fluid's ease of containment and handling allow engineers significantly greater latitude in equipment design -- and once in production, the fluid virtually eliminates the operational hassles found with other fluids.

These characteristics, coupled with the CR Fluid's low freeze point (<-120°C) have proven to substantially improve quality and yield over d-limonene and silicone-based fluids.

Typical applications for the CR Fluid include, fine chemical processes, pharmaceutical production, secondary coolant systems, continuous process applications and environmental chambers.

Founded in 1988, Paratherm Corporation has become a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialized heat transfer fluids.
