I’m sure as an engineer you have been asked to size heat exchangers, pumps, chillers and other system components for customers who want to use a Propylene Glycol/Water mixture because it is environmentally safe and user friendly. Unfortunately, you realize the temperature requirement for the Propylene Glycol /Water mixture is too low for the fluid and you have a huge loss of efficiency. Often in this circumstance you are left with using either an oil based fluid or “the dreaded” Ethylene Glycol/Water mixture. For applications like this there is another solution, Dynalene HC. Dynalene HC is a Potassium Formate/Water solution that is environmentally safe and user friendly, with a low end temperature use of -58°F (-50°C) and is easily pumped at those temperatures. So the next time you need a highly efficient fluid for your low temperature application, choose Dynalene HC or Dynalene HC- FG (food safe NSF HT-1 formulation).
Did you know Dynalene offers Lunch & Learn presentations? The presentation was developed to educate process design engineers about heat transfer fluids, their differences and the “do’s and don’ts” of designing a system for use with various fluid chemistries.
