Paratherm Heads South For Both ILTA & NISTM Conferences

Next week kicks off Paratherm’s venturing to two events—both conferences with adjoined trade shows—within the storage tank and liquid terminal industry.

First up is the 2015 NISTM Conference & Tradeshow in Orlando, Florida. This non-profit base organization provides an opportunity for exhibitors and keynotes speakers, to network and learn about the industry’s operation innovations and regulations. It will cover a range of topics from management best practices to new AST operations and environmental topics.

Some topics we are looking forward to hearing about are best practices for transferring hazardous materials via rail or pipeline. Meeting and discovering all exhibitors with any new lining/coatings for storage tanks and innovative solutions for corrosion protection. As well as being updated on any changes on the NACE and API Corrosion Protection Reference Standards. An added reference we think will be helpful for those in attendance is the session reviewing what to expect from an AST Compliance inspection.

The conference also gives a glimpse of the new concerns and technology solutions that are coming onto the scene including robotic inspections, 3D laser scans, and top spill, fire, lightning responses and safety practices. We are excited to learn, participate, and see first hand all the latest innovations, standard changes, and new management strategies.
Be sure to look for us in booth 507!


June 1-3, 2015 – Houston, Texas George R. Brown Convention Center

After NISTM, we head over to Houston, Texas for the  ILTA International Liquid Terminals Association conference and tradeshow. This premier event is celebrating its 35th year, and we are happy to contribute towards making it a memorable year. With over forty speakers, thirty-one sessions and six workshops we are ready to contribute and gain many new insights and strategies.
ILTA has exhibitors and speakers from around the world so we know we will find the best solutions, latest equipment and engage in thought-provoking discussions throughout the three days.

We’re excited to gain and bring back with us some new ideas to use within Paratherm to continue to provide the best transfer fluid solutions possible.  If you are attending, be sure to visit us in booth 1001. We would love to connect with as many aligned thought leaders as possible.

West Conshohocken, PA – USA – April 15, 2015


Paratherm recently introduced Paratherm HT Heat Transfer Fluid, which further expands the line’s temperature range for processing applications.  The product is formulated for closed-loop liquid-phase heating to 650°F in fired hot-oil heaters and 675°F in waste-heat recovery and full convection heaters used  in the  gas processing, plastic and chemical production , waste-oil recovery and biodiesel industries.  Clear Yellow Fluid Pouring Into Lipped Beaker

Jim Oetinger, Paratherm director of technology, saw the opportunity and need for the new fluid based on market research.  “Partially hydrogenated terphenyl based heat transfer fluids are nothing new; the chemistry is a proven performer. What our research told us is that there is a need for our core services – availability, fast shipment response and in-depth technical support – that is not being met by traditional suppliers.”

Founded in 1988, Paratherm has become a leading manufacturer of heat transfer fluids, system cleaners and other additive products. The firm offers a range of products (currently 10 fluids and three cleaners) covering temperatures from -148°F to +675°F. Paratherm serves a diverse number of industries including the chemical industry, food processing and plastics manufacturing.

Paratherm’s efforts have long been focused on their clients’ applications, systems and operations with expert assistance and quick turnaround being top priorities.  Orders can be filled quickly and in urgent situations very quickly, because the company stocks product in half-a-dozen North American locations and internationally in Europe, South America and Asia.

Since December 2012, Paratherm has been a business of CPI, a division of The Lubrizol Corporation.
