Why do you need a glycol to air heat exchanger?
To heat or cool your building or help engines and machines work more efficiently. How does a glycol to air heat exchanger work? The same as a fuel & fluid heat exchanger in that heat from one fluid passes to another without directly contacting one another or mixing together.
What are the advantages of using glycol to air heat exchangers?
- Industrial grade glycol is formulated with anti-corrosive additives that eliminate corrosion and reduces maintenance costs
- Glycol systems are dirt free and closed in, which takes away the need for flow filtration, in turn reducing the costs of filter maintenance and filtration pump power
- Glycol has freeze protection
- Protects HVAC systems from freezing
Glycol to air heat exchangers come in a variety of sizes.
Different levels of glycol are needed depending on the locations, types and specific requirements for each system.
HVAC applications that commonly use glycol include:
- Snow and ice melting systems
- Solar water heating systems
- Ground source heat pumps
- Chilled water-cooling systems
- Hydronic systems
All these applications require pipe burst protection and this is why glycol is used. Though water is the most efficient liquid used for heat transfer, it freezes. Glycol, being a chemical compound in the alcohol family, is safe to use in frigid temperatures without freezing up. Check out Polar Mobility’s glycol heat exchanger products for your specific needs.
