Product description

<p>Therminol VP3 heat transfer fluid is a synthetic heat transfer fluid that was specially developed to allow vapor phase heat transfer at lower temperatures than are practical with traditional diphenyl oxide (DPO)/biphenyl constituted fluids like Therminol VP-1.</p><p><strong>Performance Benefits</strong></p><ul><li><strong>Easy to Handle—</strong>Therminol VP-3 has a normal boiling point of 243°C (469°F), 14°C (26°F) below the normal boiling point of Therminol VP-1. Laboratory thermal stability testing suggests a recommended continuous operating temperature of 330°C (625°F) in the liquid or vapor phase. A crystallization point of 2°C (36°F) makes Therminol VP-3 easy to handle and may eliminate the need for costly heat tracing in moderate climates.</li><li><strong>Low Odor—</strong>The odor of Therminol VP-3 is milder than other vapor phase organic heat transfer fluids. Therminol VP-3 is a mixture of phenylcyclohexane and bicyclohexyl. It contains virtually no biphenyl.</li><li><strong>Class III b Combustibility—</strong>With an open cup flash point of 104°C (219°F), Therminol VP-3 is a Class III b combustible fluid under the definitions of the U.S. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) . As with any other combustible material, proper system design and operation are important to safe operation. Leaks of vapor could condense into a stable mist suspension that may be explosive in certain concentrations in air.</li></ul><p>For more information, visit <a href="http://www.Therminol.com" target=_blank>www.Therminol.com</a>.</p>
