IF A PROJECT IS IN A WARM CLIMATE, WHY WOULD ONE WANT TO USE HYDROMX AS IT IS MOSTLY “GLYCOL”? July 7, 2022 By Simply stated, Hydromx outperforms water. The industry is used to glycols needing a “derate” as they do not perform as well as water. Nanofluids are changing this perspective as they are glycols that outperform water. Hydromx believes a new term for “uprate™” needs to be created to better explain its performance over water. When much of the US was subjected to a polar vortex in February 2020, many facilities that used water for heat transfer froze their HVAC components. Replacing the water with Hydromx would be a simple solution to offer freeze protection while increasing efficiency.
