Deionized water (DI water, DIW or de-ionized water) is water that has almost all of its mineral ions, such as cations like sodium, calcium, iron, and copper, and anions such as chloride and sulfate removed. DI Water is the water of choice in many factories and manufacturing settings. It is commonly used in medical, food processing, chemical and semiconductor industry including, industrial cooling applications and manufacturing of cosmetics.
Dynalene recommends using deionized water to be blended with glycol to make a glycol-water solution to maximize the performance of the fluid and the system. It is recommended that the total chloride and sulfate content in the dilution water should be below 25 ppm to minimize the corrosion potential. Hard minerals and salts in dilution water can increase metal corrosion, cause formation of scale and deposits, interfere with inhibitor protection, and clog system components. If mixing on-site, a handheld refractometer or hydrometer can be used to check the propylene glycol concentration.
