JEFFCOOL® P200 Inhibited PG USP and Heat Transfer Fluid

 

JEFFCOOL® P200 Inhibited Glycols

 

DESCRIPTION

 

JEFFCOOL P200 is an inhibited U.S.P. grade propylene glycol that is used as an industrial coolant and heat transfer agent. It is intended for use where contact with food or potable water is possible and toxicological properties must be considered. All of the components in JEFFCOOL P200 are listed on the FDA GRAS (generally recognized as safe) list for chemicals to be used as direct/indirect food additives. The components in JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Glycol(s) are covered under 21 CFR 184.1666 and 21 CFR 182.6285. The inhibitor system is designed to protect most metals commonly found in industrial cooling and heating systems. A foam inhibitor is included to minimize foaming tendencies during service.

 

Extensive laboratory simulated service tests and actual service tests have proven the effectiveness of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited PG USP in preventing corrosion. Use of JEFFCOOL P200 coolant for heat transfer applications in place of brine solutions or uninhibited glycol-water solutions lowers maintenance costs and improves heat transfer.

 

JEFFCOOL P200 is available with Kosher certification.

 

APPLICATIONS

 

Packaged Food Freezing

 JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP has been developed to meet the requirements for a heat transfer agent in spray and immersion freezing of packaged foods. These freezing processes provide a means of economically quick-freezing the outer layer of packaged foods before final freezing in a freezing room. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved JEFFCOOL P200 as a coolant and heat transfer fluid for use in immersion or spray freezing of packaged poultry or wrapped meat in official establishments operating under the federal meat and poultry products inspection program.

 

Defrosting Freezing Coils

Freezing tunnels are often utilized in the preparation of frozen foods. In the freezing tunnel, high-velocity air passes over cooling coils to chill the food. As the air passes over the coils, a layer of frost forms, which reduces the heat transfer efficiency of the system. To prevent frost formation, a cold, aqueous solution of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Glycol(s) is approved by the USDA for defrosting cooling coils where the exhaust air from the coils varies over a wide temperature range.


Beer Cooling

One of the most successful applications of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP is as a heat transfer medium for beer cooling in breweries. This product may be utilized to cool fermentation tanks, yeast storage tanks, and beer storage tanks.

 

The noncorrosiveness and low toxicity of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP offer many advantages over refrigerants such as brine, ammonia, water, or uninhibited propylene glycol. Small amounts of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Glycol(s) affect neither the yeast nor fermentation of the beer.

HANDLING AND STORAGE

JEFFCOOL P200 coolant may be stored in unlined carbon steel tanks and drums remove?. If storage of concentrated JEFFCOOL P200 coolant for periods exceeding 12 months is desired,remove.  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 P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP in undiluted form will not freeze at ambient temperatures. Freezing points of various aqueous solutions of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP are shown in Figure 11.

 

Freezing will not harm JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP, but the product should be thoroughly mixed after it is completely thawed. When the temperature of undiluted JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP 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 P200 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 P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP. 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.

 

PREPARATION OF THE COOLING SYSTEM

Before JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP is added to a new cooling system, the system should be washed and thoroughly flushed with water. This will remove pipe scale, welding slag, dirt, and other impurities.

 

Existing systems that are being filled with JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP should be thoroughly cleaned to improve heat transfer characteristics and prevent contamination of the solution. A dilute solution of inhibited muriatic acid may be circulated to remove severe scaling within the system. If scaling is not excessive, a solution of either sulfamic acid or a chelating agent, such as EDTA or sodium gluconate, may be used for cleaning. Regardless of the cleaning agent used, the system must be thoroughly flushed with clean water before the JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Glycol(s) is added. Cleaning agents used should be handled in strict accordance with instructions furnished by the supplier.

 

Whenever an existing system is cleaned, a few leaks will probably be discovered. The presence of the proper maintenance people and equipment during cleaning will result in a much smoother operation.

 

INSTALLATION OF JEFFCOOL P200 INHIBITED PROPYLENE GLYCOL(S) USP

Dilution of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP with water is necessary to obtain proper freeze protection.

 

The freezing protection offered by specific concentrations of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP can be found in Figure 11. See the Table below for recommended water quality to be used for dilutions. It is recommended that a safety margin of 5°F be maintained for the lowest temperature anticipated. For example, a system with a capacity of 1,000 gallons should be filled with 470 gallons of JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Glycol(s) and 530 gallons of water if a solution freezing point of -20°F is desired.

 

DILUTION WATER SPECIFICATIONS  

The use of hard water in JEFFCOOL P200 Inhibited Propylene Glycol(s) USP 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(s) formulas are available from a Huntsman authorized distributor.
