Applications overview

Achieve distillation and refining process with Caltherm cold or warm oils

Due to the nature and characteristics of the raw materials used for their production, the gas, oil products and bitumen industries impose high requirements on their processes, particularly in terms of heat flows. Heat transfer fluids have a major role to play and Caltherm has been able to develop specific solutions according to situations or processes.

During the extraction, transport and storage steps, heat transfer fluids are used to regulate and maintain raw material at adequate temperatures in order to obtain optimal viscosities.

In oil refining, heat transfer fluids also have an important function for the specific heat energy in the distillation columns used to separate chemical compounds and thus obtain the targeted oil fractions.

The same method is used for the recycling of glycols, which, once regenerated, are re-injected into the extraction process. 
Furthermore, in the natural gas production sector, particularly for the water removal step, thermal fluids are essential: they are at the heart process, where temperature maintenance is a key point.

These sectors traditionally use mineral oil-based fluids. Caltherm has chosen synthetic-based products capable of guaranteeing optimum efficiency for operating temperatures ranging from -50°C to 400°C, thus offering solutions adapted to the entire industry, whatever their needs.
Our range meets the sector's requirements dictated by viscosity and flash points. We also propose to size our deliveries according to your installations volumes and nearby stocks for even more reactivity. 

As an example, let us mention the heat transfer fluids used in bitumen storage tanks. The products used are generally highly viscous mineral oils that are difficult to pump when cold. With its expertise, the Caltherm team offers Caltherm CSP, a synthetic product that is both economical and particularly suitable for the winter period due to its low viscosity at low temperatures.
