Eastman to increase heat transfer fluids capacity

KINGSPORT, US: Eastman Chemical Company broke ground on a capacity increase for its Therminol heat transfer fluids. The plant expansion, located in Newport, Wales, will be a new manufacturing facility capable of producing Therminol 66 and other biphenyl based co-products. The facility is expected to be operational in the second half of 2014 and will increase Eastman’s total capacity for Therminol 66 by more than 50 per cent.

“This expansion positions Eastman to meet the needs of heat transfer fluid customers with our flagship Therminol 66 product. We are committed to helping our customers meet demand by providing a reliable supply of Therminol 66. This investment is consistent with our vision to remain the global leader in high temperature heat transfer fluids,” said Ravi Prakash, Global Business Director, Specialty Fluids Business, Specialty Fluids and Intermediates segment, Eastman.
