Dynalene's history goes back to 1993 when a research grant from the Ben Franklin Technology Partnership (BFTP) of Pennsylvania State was available to Lehigh University and Loikits Technologies, Inc. to develop ultra-low temperature heat transfer fluids that work very efficiently below -80°C (-112°F). This research work resulted in several patents and the products were commercialized in 1996. Initially, the Dynalene branded products (Dynalene MV and Dynalene HF) were sold by Loikits Technologies, Inc. In 1997, a new company named Advanced Fluid Technologies (AFT) was formed to continue the development and commercialization of heat transfer fluids. By 1998, AFT had more than 8 Dynalene branded products covering a very wide temperature range from -112°C (-170°F) to 350°C (662°F).
 
As the popularity of Dynalene heat transfer fluids grew in a variety of industrial applications, AFT developed several innovative fluids and chemistries to cover as many applications as possible. The Dynalene brand name was well established with over 40 fluids that included several custom fluids made for customers depending on their applications. In 2005, the company changed its name from Advanced Fluid Technologies Inc. to Dynalene Inc. Over the last 5 years, the company has experienced significant growth, and was ranked by Inc. magazine to be among the fastest growing companies for two years.
 
Dynalene has also received in excess of $4 million in research grants over the years to develop heat transfer fluids and coolants. These include grants from the US Department of Energy to develop coolants for fuel cells and from the US Department of Defense to develop coolants utilizing hybrid nanoparticles.
 
Due to the research and instrumentation capabilities developed in the last decade, Dynalene created Dynalene Laboratory Services business unit. Laboratory Services division helps customers determine several critical properties of their materials or help solve technical problems they are encountering.

Dr. Satish Mohapatra, President and CEO
Dr. Mohapatra formulated and developed the Dynalene heat transfer fluid product-line while studying as a graduate student at Lehigh University in the early 1990s. Later, he played a key role in the formation of Dynalene Inc. as an independent company, and then created and implemented plans to lead Dynalene on a growth trajectory. Dr. Mohapatra studied Chemical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur and New Delhi, before coming to Lehigh University for graduate studies. In the last 20 years, he has developed expertise in heat transfer fluids, coolants, nanofluids and secondary refrigerants. He serves as an Executive Board Member for the Lehigh Nanotechnology Network (LNN). Dr. Mohapatra has several patents and over 40 publications in peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings. He enjoys playing with his kids during his free time.
 
David Arcury, Chief Operating Officer and Manager of High Performance Fluids
Mr. Arcury joined Dynalene in 1999 as a Sales Manager. Prior to joining Dynalene, Mr. Arcury worked for Rusty Jones, National Resource Group, State Chemical and MAB Paints in various sales and marketing positions for about 20 years. Dynalene was a fledgling company when he joined and with a lot of passion and effort he created a world-wide customer base for Dynalene’s heat transfer fluids. He then became the Vice President of Sales and Marketing in 2001 and the Chief Operating Officer (COO) in 2006. Since becoming the COO of Dynalene, he has become a part of the strategy building process and has helped the company to grow several folds. Dave enjoys traveling, fishing, boating and his son’s football games during his free time (if he has any).
 
Jeffry Frick, Production and Shipping Manager
Jeff has over 30 years of experience in production, purchasing and shipping, including international shipments. Prior to joining Dynalene in 2005, Jeff worked for a number of valve companies such as Ecolaire Valve, Drum Owen Valve Co., Keystone Valve Co., True Flow Valve Co. and Milliken Valve Co. At Dynalene, he oversees daily production operations, manages all the shipping documentation and procures raw materials. His dedication and hard work has proven to be vital for the company’s growth.
 
Becky Klimas, Laboratory Services Manager
Becky graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry from Moravian College in 2006. She graduated with her M.S. in Chemistry from Lehigh University in 2010. At Lehigh University she worked on synthesizing, researching, and testing nanoparticles for catalytic activity. Her R&D projects and mentoring fellow graduate and undergraduate students at Lehigh prepared her to join Dynalene in 2011 to help on a project synthesizing polymer nanoparticles. From there, Becky moved to the Laboratory Services Division, here at Dynalene, where she now manages the Laboratory Services Team and helps clients with their unique testing needs.
