DOWTHERM™ Q

Thermal Fluid Containing a Mix of Diphenylethane and Alkylated Aromatics as an Alternative to Hot Oils for Systems (up to 625°F)
Product Overview

DOWTHERM™ Q is a high-performance thermal fluid for liquid phase systems between -35°C and 330°C (-30°F to 625°F). DOWTHERM™ Q exhibits significantly greater low temperature pumpability in comparison to hot oils.

DOWTHERM™ Q heat transfer fluid is a suitable replacement for hot oils in a variety of high temperature systems.

DOWTHERM™ Q is also noncorrosive to common alloys & metals used in thermal transfer systems.
