Flu Shots … and Closed Loop System Checks

We all know that fall is a time to think about our flu shots, and that it is critical to maintain our health during the flu season. Have you considered checking the health of your customers’ closed loop HVAC and geothermal equipment, to ensure that it too stays healthy all season long? CORECHEM Inc. is your resource for analyzing thermal fluids, to give your customer the peace of mind that their systems contain enough antifreeze to protect from a freeze up flu.

Closed Loop System

Why Is It Important to Treat Your System with the Burst Protection Flu Shot?

Winter is once again on the brink, and just like humans, the health of your closed loops systems might suffer. CORECHEM’s GlycoChill+™ and Exo Endosol™ products provide both the freeze and corrosion resistance that your clients’ systems need to stay well all winter long.

From now until November 30, CORECHEM is offering thermal fluid analysis for any system, at no charge! Simply reach out to us at sales@corecheminc.com or call 800-258-5829 to have a sample kit shipped to you today. You should get your results within 2 days of the receipt of your sample!

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 listed below.

Ethanol (ethyl alcohol)
  • low corrosiveness
  • high flammability (if pure)
  • low toxicity
  • high heat transfer capacity
  • low pumping requirements due to viscosity
  • moderate cost
Methanol (methyl alcohol)
  • low corrosiveness
  • high flammability (if pure)
  • high toxicity (some states have banned the use of this product in geothermal systems)
  • high heat transfer capacity
  • low pumping requirements due to viscosity
  • low cost
Ethylene Glycol (1,2-ethanediol)
  • low corrosiveness
  • low flammability
  • high toxicity
  • low heat transfer capacity
  • high pumping requirements due to viscosity
  • higher cost
Propylene Glycol (1,2-propanediol)
  • low corrosiveness
  • low flammability
  • low toxicity
  • low heat transfer capacity
  • high pumping requirements due to viscosity
  • highest cost
Bio-based Propylene Glycol (1,3-propanediol)
  • low corrosiveness
  • high resistance to acid degradation
  • low flammability
  • low toxicity
  • low heat transfer capacity
  • lower pumping requirements than propylene glycol, due to viscosity
  • highest cost
