WHY RELATHERM FG-3?
Relatherm FG-3 is manufactured from high purity base fluids and a potent anti-oxidation additive*. As such, it exhibits superlative thermal properties when compared to other industry fluids in its class. Its thermal stability translates into low vapor pressures, especially at high operating temperatures. The longevity of Relatherm FG-3 is well enabled by a formulation that includes metal deactivators and corrosion inhibitors.
Relatherm FG-3 is an extended life thermal fluid well proven in many closed loop industrial applications. It is infused with advanced additives and a proprietary thermofluid technology that ensures a trouble-free operation. An inert gas blanket provides the most optimal service life
HEALTH, SAFETY & THE ENVIRONMENT
Relatherm FG-3 is non-toxic and non-hazardous. It is environmentally friendly and poses no adverse effect to personnel safety.
There are no special disposal procedures for Relatherm FG-3. After its long-service life, it can be disposed of like other regular waste oils according to Local, State and Federal regulations. Relatherm partners with fluid recyclers and reclamation companies where applicable.
