Swansil Heat Transfer Fluids
Operating range -100C to + 315C (depending on grade)

Description Instructions Sizes, Prices & Offers

Swansil silicone fluids are pure polydimethylsiloxane fluids with a wide range of industrial applications stemming from their inherent properties of inertness, non-toxicity and non-flammability.

Typical industrial applications

Heat transfer fluid.
Lubricant.
Heat bath fluid.
Release agent.
Anti-foam agent.
Damping fluid.
Hydraulic fluid.

Heat transfer fluids

Swansil is widely used as a heat transfer fluid in industrial applications where non-flammability and chemical inertness are priorities, and in laboratory heat baths and calibration equipment. Depending on the viscosity grade, Swansil can be used up to 180C in an open, unpressurised system without degradation.

Lubrication

Swansil silicone fluids provide excellent lubrication in many situations where a very low friction interface is required, such as certain sliding mechanisms, cable pulling/blowing, plastic linkages, curtain tracks and similar applications. Swansil is also available in a convenient aerosol form, ideal for these types of uses.

Handling safety and toxicity

Silicone fluids have a very low order of toxicity and present negligible skin irritation problems, particularly in comparison with mineral oil based and aromatic hydrocarbon alternatives often encountered in heat transfer and lubrication applications. In addition, being non-flammable and having a flash point in excess of 320C for certain grades, Swansil silicone fluids offer enhanced safety in use and in the event of equipment malfunction involving fluid loss.

Physical properties
