Ethanol & Methanol based Geothermal Fluid
Do you have a closed-loop Geothermal System?
An alcohol-based geothermal fluid may be the solution you’re looking for. Compared to glycols, they have better heat transfer characteristics and less issues with viscosity in cold temperatures. Alcohol-based geothermal fluid is primarily used in closed-loop systems due to the potential for product evaporation.
Long Life Expectancy & Low Maintenance
Systems containing Ethyl Alcohol (Ethanol) or Methyl Alcohol (Methanol) are not subject to bio-fouling, and do not require maintenance of Reserve Alkalinity. It is important to know, however, that Methanol is very hazardous and has been banned for use in several states.
Industry Leading Inhibitors
Both our Ethanol-based series (Exo Endosol) and our Methanol-based series (GeoChill+ ‘M’) contain corrosion inhibitors that have been proven to outperform other widely used brands, while protecting both ferrous and nonferrous metals from corrosion. In this test, a three year comparison was made between Exo Endosol (blue) and a commonly used Ethanol-based fluid on the market today. A nail was used to test the effectiveness of the corrosion inhibitors.
