Characteristics of alcohol and glycol-based heat transfer fluids

There are a variety of compounds that can be used in heat transfer fluids to prevent water from freezing where the temperature in the fluid is below 0°C (32°F); the most common are, ethanol (ethyl alcohol) methanol (methyl alcohol) ethylene glycol (1,2-ethanediol) propylene glycol (1,2-propanediol) bio-based propylene glycol (1,3-propanediol) The basic properties of these freeze protection fluids are […]

Geothermal Fluids – Is your system protected from biofouling and corrosion?

While a system may contain a sufficient level of heat transfer fluid to prevent the system from freezing, what is often overlooked is the protection of the system from corrosion and biofouling.  When glycol-based heat transfer fluids are used in closed-loop geothermal systems, the risk of biofouling and corrosion is much higher than the risk […]
