Dowcal 200

Propylene glycol, also known as Propane-1,2-diol is used as a heat transfer fluid and antifreeze, particularly as a low corrosion non-toxic substitute to ethylene glycol based cooling systems. In aluminium based cooling systems like HVAC/R, propylene glycol has shown efficacy comparable to ethylene glycol.

Benefits of PG:
-Low freezing point
-The ability to decrease the freezing point of water
-Burst protection
-Low mammalian toxicity
-Low flammability
-Excellent heat transfer properties
-A high boiling point, low vapor pressure

Water based fluids expand in volume when they freeze, causing rupturing of pipes and containment vessels. Ethylene glycol has severe toxicological and environmental implications making it unsuited for cases of human exposure. Water-PG mixtures in low temperature conditions do not create extra pressure on vessel walls and in case of leakage, they are not hazardous. This makes Propylene glycol the ideal active ingredient as heat transfer fluid in industrial systems.

DOWCAL 200 manufactured by DOW Chemicals is propylene glycol based heat transfer fluid antifreeze that has a wide range of application. It has been formulated to operate at temperatures higher than what ordinary glycol fluids can. It has a low acute oral toxicity and includes a specially designed inhibitor package to prevent corrosion of common materials used in HVAC, Food beverage processing, solar power plants etc.

•Closed-loop water based heating & air conditioning systems
•Food and brewery industry
•HVAC systems
•Secondary cooling and heating
•Freeze and Burst protection
•Renewable energy systems

Quaternary Disinfectants
Quaternary Disinfectants are broad spectrum disinfectants. According to EPA’s definition broad spectrum disinfectants show efficacy against all the three major classes of microbial organisms-Bacteria, Fungi and Viruses Cleaning products used in houses, industries, public places are mainly based on quaternary ammonium compounds. The risk of contamination is increasing at an alarming rate in our everyday life. Thus disinfectants are an important component for safeguarding the environment. Structurally Quaternary ammonium compounds contain a
Surfactants are surface active agents that aids in the lowering of interfacial tension between two liquids or between a solid and a liquid. All detergents, emulsifiers, wetting agents, foaming agents and dispersants fall under the class of surfactants. Surfactant molecules are amphiphilic in nature chrachterized by a long hydrophobic tail group and a polar hydrophilic head group .This allows surfactants to achieve solubility in
Rodine 85- Preventing Metals from Acid Corrosion
In many industrial operations metals such as steel and iron are subjected to very high temperature which often leaves a discoloring oxide layer or scale on the surface. The process of hot rolling, drawing, annealing and molding of metals result in the deposition of organic impurities, stains, rusts and scale which impede further metal processing. In industries same metals are used for a long period which makes them vulnerable to
Metal Passivation using Rodine 85 for Sulfuric Acid Pickling - ChemEqual
Derusting and descaling operations on industrial metal components require the use of strong mineral acids like sulfuric acid to maintain surface quality. It employs the use of acid baths for oxidative removal of alkali scales and mineral oxide deposits. But mineral acids have a tendency to corrode metal surfaces as well rendering them distorted by formation of pits and loss of base metal. To retard the corrosive nature of acids, the
