Dynalene Inc. is a U.S.-based leading developer and manufacturer of heat transfer fluids serving customers all around the world. We have three manufacturing locations — Pennsylvania, Illinois and Utah — with our headquarters in Pennsylvania. When we started, we offered only a few chemistries of fluids. Over the last 20 years, we have expanded our line to more than 35 fluids.
Between our facilities, we can produce more than 30,000 gallons of fluid per day with approximately 35,000 ft2 of storage under roof. We routinely develop new heat transfer fluid formulations through our strong R&D program. The entire heat transfer fluid line is made from five chemistries, which include glycols, potassium formate/water solutions, hydrocarbon fluids, silicone oils and molten salts. Dynalene heat transfer fluids cover a wide temperature range from as low as -170°F (-112°C) to as high as 1050°F (565°C).
Dynalene’s customers range from Fortune 500 companies and large industrial complexes to small businesses servicing commercial HVAC systems. In keeping up with the strong demands of our customers, we have two fluids with an NSF HT-1 rating for incidental food contact.
The first of these two fluids is our USP-grade Propylene Glycol (Dynalene PG-FG) and second, our high performance fluid, Dynalene HC-FG (potassium formate solution). With the addition of the Dynalene HC-FG, customers have a fluid that can be used from -58 to 424°F (-50 to 218°C), surpassing the low temperature capabilities of glycol-based fluids while feeling secure that the fluid is safe for use in their plants.
For more information about our fluids, please contact David Arcury.

Removing suspended solids from water for cooling, processing, irrigation, water treatment and wastewater treatment has been the focus of ORIVAL Inc. for more than 30 years.
Founded in the mid-1980s, ORIVAL is a world leader in water filtration systems. From the beginning, the company has designed and shipped filtration systems worldwide. ORIVAL filtration specialists and engineers have over a century of combined filtration experience to ensure quality designs and diligent customer service.
ORIVAL specializes in hydraulic and electric automatic self-cleaning screen filters with interchangeable weave-wire, wedge-wire or perforated screens having filtration degrees from 5 to 3000 microns. These filters are available with inlet and outlet flanges from 0.75” to 24” (20 mm to 600 mm) and individual filter flow rates up to 12,000 gpm (2,700 m3/hr). Standard filters made from carbon steel with oven-cured polyester/epoxy coating inside and out or all stainless steel units are normally in stock. However, ORIVAL will build filters to exact specifications and codes (ASME, API, etc.) and special materials of construction, including Hastelloy, Duplex, Super Duplex, 254 SMO or even titanium.
ORIVAL also maintains an inventory of manual screen filters, self-cleaning pump intake strainers and self-cleaning coarse screen strainers. Skid packages with pumps, filters, manifolds, valves and controls are designed and build routinely. Intricate manifolds are fabricated to fit unique piping systems for mounting single or multiple water filters. Flange-to-flange systems are designed and built to incorporate filtration systems fitting between two existing flanges in a process.

For more than 60 years, Polyguard Products has provided innovative solutions for protecting structures from moisture intrusion and corrosion protection for pipelines and insulated piping.
Polyguard is an innovator and manufacturer of barriers — not just barriers against moisture and corrosion, but against contaminants like radon and methane. Most recently, Polyguard has developed a new barrier to provide termite protection.
Based in Ennis, Texas, Polyguard is 100 percent owned by its employee stock ownership plan (ESOP). The company has three primary divisions:
- The Mechanical Division offers weather and vapor barrier systems to keep pipe and duct insulation dry as well as a unique ReactiveGel coating to stop corrosion under insulation (CUI). Polyguard RG2400 has been specified on ammonia refrigeration systems by many of the leading food manufacturing companies in North America to stop corrosion under insulation and keep existing facilities operating with little downtime.
- The Architectural Division offers the Integrated Building Envelope System, with air barriers, masonry through-wall and window flashings, below grade waterproofing and drainage panels — all connected using engineered detailing assemblies assuring building envelope integrity.
- Polyguard’s Pipeline Division was the first coating manufacturer to highlight and solve the cathodic shielding problem and is an important supplier to the oil and gas industry.
