By this you probably don’t mean Glycol and Transfer fluid, but rather the ubiquitous classic aperitif Gin and Tonic. We’re not going to claim that these are comparable, but there are some similarities.
“After all, the best Gin only comes into its own with a quality Tonic, too!”
Just like the Gin connoisseurs, the Glycol specialists also agree that you should not simply add water to achieve a sustainable Heat Transfer Fluid. In addition to corrosion protective inhibitors, the quality of the added water largely determines the life of the secondary cooling system.
The type of water added to the heat transfer fluid can also influence the chemical properties of the fluid. And you also want the characteristics of the balanced glycol and set of inhibitors to be fully appreciated.
One of the best known side effects of choosing the wrong water grade is water scaling. Therefore, in this white paper we are going to give an overview of the different water grades and the best choice for optimal performance of glycol-based coolant.
To be clear, we are not going to talk about the best tonic choice with your Gin in this paper. But we can talk it over at a G&T to recommend the best HTF dilution for your installation.
