What if our cooling system uses glycol?

Concerns if your cooling system uses glycol.

If Glycol is employed in your cooling water please be aware that:
  • The Glycol must not be automotive grade but rather Inhibited Ethylene Glycol specifically formulated to protect brass, copper, and copper alloys. (Dimplex has a product called K-Kool-E and Dow chemical has a line) Other types of anti-freeze or anti-rust agents can be conductive and can cause catastrophic failure of your equipment.
  • The maximum glycol concentration should not exceed 20% as cooling capacity is limited to 82% capacity (see chart). Concentrations greater than this can catastrophically impair the cooling of your power supply, workhead and coil.
  • Do not connect to potable water source.
