Dow Thermal Transfer Fluids
PEACE OF MIND
Dow knows it takes a special fluid to protect your cooling systems and reputation. Dow fluids are formulated with high quality raw materials for maximum value and peace of mind.
Heat Transfer Fluids from Dow are fluids designed to help meet demanding system performance, protection, and safety requirements. They include technologies optimized for applications ranging from geothermal heat pumps and other water-based systems to food and beverage processing; and from pharmaceutical and polymer processing to Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) generation.
DOW offers a full range of DOWCAL™ heat transfer fluids – including both ethylene glycol and propylene glycol based fluids – to meet your specific system requirements. When you choose a DOWCAL™ fluid, you can be confident it will provide long-lasting protection and performance without jeopardizing the integrity of the equipment in which it is used. DOWCAL™ fluid are used successfully in a wide range of applications, from renewable energy, HVCA systems, chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals & food processing.
These specially formulated industrial inhibitor packages are designed to prevent corrosion and are widely used for closed-loop, water-based HVAC, process heating and cooling, and food industry applications. They are manufactured with DOW PuraGuard Propylene Glycol USP/EP, a pharmaceutical grade of monopropylene with specified purity greater than 99.8%. The inhibitors are easily maintained, long lasting and replenishable, which means intervals between fluid change-outs are extended and fluid expense is minimized.
These thermal fluids are either organic synthetic or inhibited glycol-based. There are various grades available, each formulated from a different base chemistry to provide the right heat transfer properties for your applications.
These low-viscosity silicone fluids offer excellent heat transfer performance and long service life. They are designed for high and low liquid phase heat transfer mediums and also offer low odor and toxicity. While the initial purchase cost of silicone fluids are typically more expensive than synthetic organic fluids, silicone fluids often have a lower long-term operating cost because they do not degrade like other fluids or require top-off fills.
