JEFFCOOL® P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) and Heat Transfer Fluid

 

JEFFCOOL® P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s)

 

DESCRIPTION

JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) is an inhibited propylene glycol based industrial coolant and heat transfer agent. It is a slightly hazy liquid, free of suspended solids with a slight odor. 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. A foam inhibitor is included to minimize foaming tendencies during service.

 

The effectiveness of JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) in preventing corrosion has been proven in extensive laboratory simulated service and in actual service tests. Using JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) for heat transfer applications in place of brine solutions or uninhibited glycol-water solutions lowers maintenance costs and improves heat transfer.

 

APPLICATIONS

Since JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) is formulated with propylene glycol, it is especially suitable for applications in which toxicological and environmental considerations are critical.

 

JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) is compatible and completely interchangeable with systems currently utilizing ethylene glycol based coolants.

 

JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) protects cooling systems from freezing in winter, overheating in summer, and corrosion in all seasons. Improved heat transfer and less internal corrosion contributes significantly to overall operating and maintenance costs. JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) is recommended as a heat transfer fluid for line heaters, ground thawing, athletic fields, grave digging, snow melting systems for loading ramps, walkways, highways, and airfield runways.  The corrosion protection provided by JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) and its low toxicity level as compared to other heat transfer fluids makes it an ideal transfer medium for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as solar energy collection systems.

 

Thermal Energy Storage, Heating and Cooling Systems

 

JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) is recommended as a heat transfer fluid in combination heating and cooling systems for large buildings. The excellent corrosion protection afforded by JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol prolongs the life of the piping in these systems. JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) is also an excellent heat transfer medium for continuously wetted solar energy collection systems.

 

Other Industry Applications

  • Automotive and aircraft manufacturers
  • Chemical manufacturers
  • Dye and dye intermediate producers
  • Electric power companies
  • Ice skating rinks
  • Paint, varnish, and lacquer companies
  • Paper and paper product companies
  • Plastics and synthetic resin manufacturers
  • Textile chemical manufacturers
  • Fire sprinkler systems
  • Data centers
  • Propane vaporizers
  • Geothermal systems               

HANDLING AND STORAGE

 

JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) may be stored in unlined carbon steel tanks and drums. If storage of concentrated JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) for periods over 12 months is desired, it is recommended that the storage vessels be constructed from aluminum, stainless steel, or lined carbon steel. Vinyl, epoxy, and phenolic linings are suitable. Amercoat®-23 and Amercoat®-75 linings have been found to be satisfactory.

 

JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) in undiluted form will not freeze at ambient temperatures. Freezing will not harm JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) but the product should be thoroughly mixed after it is completely thawed. When the temperature of undiluted JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol is below 40°F, the viscosity will be such that pumping and transfer will be difficult. In areas where these conditions exist, it is recommended that storage vessels be equipped with stainless steel heating coils.

 

Diluted JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) is easily pumped under normally expected temperatures. However, at temperatures below -20°F, special pumping equipment may be necessary.

 

The normal precautions associated with any chemical should be observed in handling JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s). This product is neither explosive nor flammable under normal storage conditions. The propylene glycol in this product is considered practically nontoxic. Splashes onto eyes or skin however, must be washed away quickly and medical treatment is advised for eye exposure. Breathing of the vapors or mists should be avoided.

 

INSTALLATION OF JEFFCOOL P150 COOLANT

 

Dilution of JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) with water is necessary to obtain proper freeze protection. This should be done prior to installation. See the Table below for recommended water quality to be used for dilutions. Topping-off of cooling systems should be done with pre-diluted JEFFCOOL Inhibited Glycol(s) solutions at the required system concentration.

 

DILUTION WATER SPECIFICATIONS

 


The use of hard water in JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) solutions should be avoided. Hard water contains calcium and magnesium ions which deposit scale in the system and could also cause precipitation of a portion of the inhibitor system. When hard water conditions exist, distilled, deionized, or boiler condensate water should be used if at all possible. If a suitable water source is not available, pre-diluted JEFFCOOL Inhibited Glycol formulas are available from a Huntsman authorized distributor.

 

RECOMMENDED WATER SPECIFICATIONS

 

SYSTEM MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

 

Huntsman Corporation, in conjunction with our authorized JEFFCOOL Inhibited Glycol(s) brand product distributors, provides a comprehensive system maintenance program, including a product analysis service to assure that JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) in customer systems maintains the proper inhibitor level and desired freeze protection. Once the system is in operation, it is recommended that samples of solution be taken at least once a year. The solution should be circulated for 30 minutes prior to sampling to ensure a representative sample.

 

SAMPLE TEST KITS

Sample test kits are free of charge to Huntsman distributors and their customers who purchase JEFFCOOL Inhibited Glycol(s). Kits are available upon request. The kits include: self-addressed shipping box, pre-labeled sample bottle, weather-proof self-adhesive product installation tag and detailed sampling procedures. Analytical results from the samples will be forwarded to customers.

 

REINHIBITING PROCEDURE

Occasionally, after prolonged or severe service, a solution of JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) may need to be reinhibited. The need for reinhibition will be detected during the periodic analysis program and a recommended procedure will be included with the analytical results.

 

JEFFCOOL supplemental coolant additives (SCA) are available in five gallon and 55-gallon drum quantities from your JEFFCOOL Inhibited Glycol(s) brand product representatives. The components of JEFFCOOL SCA replenish critical inhibitors required to provide continued protection.

 

Additives used in inhibiting JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) should be handled in strict accordance with instructions furnished by their suppliers.

 

TOXICITY AND SAFETY

JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) is not considered hazardous under ordinary conditions of handling and use. Propylene glycol, which is the main component of this product, is considered practically nontoxic. JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol is only minimally irritating to skin and eyes, but as with any chemical, unnecessary contact with these body parts is to be avoided.

A Material Safety Data Sheet for JEFFCOOL P150 Inhibited Glycol(s) is available on request.
