A formulation of ethylene glycol that features one of the highest maximum use temperature of any glycol, operating temperature ranges -60°F to 350°F. The fluid is dyed fluorescent orange to aid in leak detection.
DOWTHERM™ 4000 inhibited ethylene glycol (EG) is comprised of about 92% EG and 8% corrosion inhibitors and has a bright fluorescent orange color. The lower EG content allows for a higher concentration of corrosion inhibitors which in turn means DOWTHERM™ 4000 is capable of operating at higher temperatures than DOWTHERM™ SR1 i.e. from -20°F to 350°F. This makes DOWTHERM™ 4000 a higher end, niche type product which is also capable of providing freeze protection down to -60°F.
Ethylene glycol-based fluid (92%) Fluorescent orange Increased concentration of inhibitors Efficient heat transfer Operating range: -20°F to 350°F for heat transfer 60°F for burst protection
Primary Chemistry: Ethylene glycol
Features & Benefits
Wide-temperature range operability
Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) Chill water & hydronic heating loops Geothermal (ground source heat pumps) Snow melt & Turf heating systems Solar hot water heating Fire water sprinkler systems Refrigeration Ice skating rinks Cold storage, refrigerated warehouses & supermarkets (secondary loop) Thermal Energy Storage (TES)
DOWTHERM™ inhibited glycol-based fluids are specially formulated with heavy-duty industrial inhibitor packages that prevent corrosion. The inhibitors are easily maintained, long lasting and replenish-able, which means intervals between fluid changeouts are extended and fluid expense is minimized.
