As the Autumn begins to turn into Winter, the maintainer of chilled water cooling systems thoughts turn to the potential damage of frozen coils and pipes.

Protecting your system in advance of a cold snap is highly advisable and of late, we have seen a number of our clients calling upon our services to top up the anti-freeze levels within their cooling water systems.

Analysing the existing level of protection and given the size of the system, we are able to estimate an approximate amount anti-freeze that is required to be added.

Final analysis of the chemical dosing leads to “fine tuning” of levels to leave the system containing a water and anti-freeze mixture of the desired Refractive Index.

This allows the system to operate without fear of freezing during the worst expected extremes during the Winter.

Another dose of anti-freeze being delivered to our client’s site is shown below.
