Climalife has launched an updated range of its plant-based heat transfer fluids, which it says offers improved performance and is also NSF HT1 registered for accidental contact with food.
The Neo N range is formulated using 1,3-propanediol, a raw material of plant origin derived from the fermentation of 99.7 per cent purified glucose syrup, and high-performance hybrid anti-corrosion inhibitors.
According to life cycle analysis (ISO 14040 standard), the production of bio-based 1,3-propanediol consumes 50 per cent less energy and halves the CO2 in its manufacture than mono propylene glycol (MPG).
Greenway Neo N has the same efficiency as the previous formula, is non-toxic, and is suited to the needs of food processing applications. With a lower viscosity than MPG, Climalife says it offers better performance as it can be used in applications with temperatures down to -55°C, which are unattainable with MPG.
Greenway Neo Heat Pump N, meanwhile, is suitable for ground source and air-to-water heat pump applications, heating, ventilation, air conditioning systems and domestic hot water production. It is biodegradable and reduces the risk of soil pollution in case of leakage.
