JEFFCOOL® P150 as an Inhibited Glycol in HVAC Systems
JEFFCOOL® P150 is an inhibited propylene glycol-based industrial coolant and heat transfer agent commonly used as an inhibited Glycol in HVAC systems. The inhibitor system is designed to protect brass, copper, solder, steel, cast iron, aluminum, and other metals commonly found in industrial cooling and heating systems.
The corrosion protection provided by JEFFCOOL® P150 coolant and its low toxicity level, as compared to other heat transfer fluids, make it an ideal transfer medium for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, as well as solar energy collection systems.
Closed-loop HVAC systems are very efficient, but there is a risk that the coils or pipes in the system that are exposed to the elements will freeze in frigid winter temperatures. To keep that from happening, propylene glycol is often added to the water to lower its burst point from 32 degrees Fahrenheit to between 0 degrees and -10 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Proven corrosion prevention
- Use in place of brine or uninhibited glycol/ water solutions
- Foam suppression
- Lowers maintenance costs
- Improves heat transfer
JEFFCOOL® P150 Inhibited GLYCOL in HVAC Systems
Water is both more effective at transferring heat and less expensive than propylene glycol. Without adding glycol to a heating system, expensive and potentially dangerous damage to process equipment can occur. If the heating system is shut off for some time during the winter, the system and its pipes can freeze and burst, causing water damage.
Having an inhibited glycol, like JEFFCOOL® P150, only further protects your HVAC system metals from corrosion. The cost of repairing or replacing HVAC system components makes it well worth it to invest in adding this anti-freezing, anti-corrosion fluid to a closed-loop system.
