Use of a synthetic diesel comprising non-cyclic alkanes

Avantherm AB has invented the use of a synthetic diesel comprising non-cyclic alkanes at a percentage of at least 50 percent, possibly up to 50 percent of alkylated monocyclic alkanes, not more than 1 percent of aromatic hydrocarbons, and not more than 1 percent of di- and polycyclic alkanes, as heat exchange medium. The invention also relates to a cooling medium, characterized in that it basically consists of a synthetic diesel comprising non-cyclic alkanes at a percentage of at least 50 percent, possibly up to 50 percent of alkylated monocyclic alkanes, not more than 1 percent of aromatic hydrocarbons, and not more than 1 percent of di- and polycyclic alkanes. The invention is patented* in Australia and South Africa. Moreover there are pending* patents in Brazil, Europe, United Arab Emirates, India, Japan, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Mexico, Russian Federation, Thailand, USA and South Korea.
