Corrosion Comparison of Metals in Dynalene HC and CaCl2 Brine
Dynalene HC is a potassium formate and water based heat transfer fluid used in several low temperature applications. Dynalene HC is a non-toxic, non-flammable, environmentally friendly fluid which demonstrates higher thermal efficiency, lower viscosity and lower corrosion rate as compared to other brines (e.g. CaCl2). Presence of chloride in the fluid causes several forms of corrosion including localized, pitting and stress-corrosion cracking. Dynalene HC with an ideal pH and premium corrosion package protects the metals and the fluid from any degradation. Dynalene performed several corrosion tests over the years with our HC series of fluids and compared the results with CaCl2 and other water based heat transfer fluids.
