DOWTHERM™ T

Alkyl Benzene Heat Transfer Fluid for Liquid Phase Thermal Transfer Applications (-10°C to 315°C).
Product Overview

DOWTHERM™ T is a heat transfer fluid based on a mixture of alkyl benzenes (C14-C30) for use in non-pressurized liquid systems -10°C to 288°C (14°F to 550°F) and max bulk temperature of 315°C (600°F). DOWTHERM™ T fluid exhibits good low temperature properties and exceptional stability at high temperature operation.

DOWTHERM™ T provides incredibly long fluid life and excellent heat transfer across a very broad range.
