DOWTHERM A from The Dow Chemical Company is a heat transfer fluid suitable for non-pressurized liquid phase systems with a maximum
temperature of 550F (288C).
DOWTHERM A is a eutectic mixture of two very stable compounds
biphenyl - C12H10
diphenyl oxide - C12H10O
with practically the same vapor pressures - suitable as a indirect heat transfer fluid for
liquid phase systems - 15oC to 400oC (60oF to 750oF)
vapor phase systems - 257oC to 400oC (495oF to 750oF)

Physical properties
freeze point - 12oC (56.6oF)
boiling point (atmospheric) - 257oC (494.8oF)
flash point (SETA) - 113oC (236oF)
Fire point (C.O.C) - 118oC (245oF)
autoignition temperature - 599oC (1110oF)
density (25oC, 75oF) - 1056 kg/m3 (66 lb/ft3)
