Our Story

Founded in 1998, Hydratech began as a family run business formulating and manufacturing inhibited glycols, antifreeze solutions and water treatment chemicals including inhibitors and cleansers, for protecting cooling and heating systems.

Now part of the larger Liquitherm Technologies Group, Hydratech are recognised as the industry’s leading heat transfer fluid experts for process and hydronic systems.

With peerless experience and industry knowledge, they have built an enviable list of blue-chip partners across many business and industry sectors including; renewable energy, manufacturing, power & utilities, agriculture, food & drink, healthcare, education and retail.

Coca-Cola, Haribo, Papa John’s Pizza, Walls, McCain, Ocado, BrewDog, Mercedes, BMW, Arla Dairies, Ocado and Kensa Heat Pumps are just some of the companies benefiting from the numerous operating advantages of Hydratech's specialist fluids.

Hydratech invest heavily in research and development, to ensure they remain at the forefront of the heat transfer fluid industry. Their DTX glycol hybrids have been especially formulated for use in process cooling, refrigeration, HVAC and renewable energy systems - to exploit the advantages ethylene glycol has over propylene glycol, whilst delivering a non-toxic solution.

Benefits of DTX technology include; more efficient heat transfer, easier to pump (especially at low temperatures), less volume for the same freeze protection, and cheaper per litre.

Hydratech’s team of sales engineers, chemists and analysts can assist with all aspects of thermal performance, running costs, environmental impact, compatibility and energy efficiency. They also have the expertise to formulate fluid solutions for bespoke applications.

Following consistent demand for technical advice and engineering support, Hydratech recognised the need to take things a step further and provide ‘hands on’ system filling, flushing, remediation and compliance management. The Hydratech Services team of experienced, highly skilled engineers provide 24-7 technical support across the UK, ensuring compliance and peace of mind for commercial, industrial or process closed loop systems.

Hydratech are proud members and work in association with many professional bodies and organisations including; BSRIA, Cold Chain Federation, CIBSE, Legionella Control Association, BFBI, CHAS, IOR and GSHPA.
