B BBBAC

Performance Rating

  • Summary - Rating: BSuitable for food & beverage processing and other applications where a pharmaceutical classification is preferred. Average efficiency and relatively high cost per litre.

  • Efficiency - Rating: CLow Thermal Conductivity and high Viscosity at sub-zero temperatures, results in reduced heat transfer efficiency and increased energy demands. Good Specific Heat capacity helps improve overall performance.

  • Antifreeze - Rating: BProvides protection down to -50°C but greater concentration (% volume) is required to achieve the same freeze-point protection, compared with DTX, IGE and LVF.

  • Corrosion Control - Rating: BPharmaceutical formulation with synergistic corrosion inhibitors to exceed BS6580 and ASTM D1384 standards. Also contains biological inhibitors and polyacrylates to prevent scale precipitation.

  • Toxicity - Rating: AClassified as Non-Toxic and Food-Safe. Suitable for food & beverage processing systems and where low-toxicity is preferred. LD50 Oral Rat >20,000mg/kg body weight.
