SHELL GTL SERIES
Shell GTL fluids are the miracle solvents, high purity parafinnic fluids that based on gas to liquid technology. Their unique synthetic composition, with low aromatics content, is designed to enhance performance over conventional solvents in many different applications.
GAS TO LIQUIDS TECHNOLOGY: AT THE FOREFRONT OF INNOVATION
Shell GTL Fluids and solvents are produced by Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) process, which uses natural gas as a feedstock.
The basic chemistry behind the GTL process, known as Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, was develop in the 1920s by two German scientists, Franz Fisher and Hans Tropsch. Taking this technology as their starting point, Shell technologist have worked for more than 35 years to refine the GTL process.
PREMIUM QUALITY PARAFFINIC FLUIDS AND SOLVENTS WITH A UNIQUE SET OF CHARACTERICTICS
- Reduced environmental impact: low aromatic and naphthenic content designed to promote better biodegradability, lower ecotoxicity and lower photochemical reactivity. The latter is designed to result in very low ozone formation potential.
- High purity: synthesized from methane gas, GTL Fluids and Solvents comprise only iso and normal paraffins. They contain low amount of impurities such as sulphur, olefins and polycyclic aromatics. They have a bright and clear appearance.
- Low odour: almost odourless, due to their low aromatic and naphthenic content.
- Synthetic: GTL technology and gas feedstock are designed to provide a more stable, synthetic product with consistent composition.
