BioTherm Fluids® HD

Heavy Duty, Extended Life, Pre-Diluted
Glycerin Antifreeze / Coolant / Heat Transfer Fluid

IceClear HD glycerin antifreeze / coolant / heat transfer fluidDESCRIPTION
BioTherm Fluids HD is a patented biobased, ready-to-use, non-glycol coolant / anti-freeze / heat transfer fluid which combines highly refined glycerin certified to ASTM D7640 and a traditional nitrite coolant corrosion inhibitor package (No Amines or Phosphates) to create a heavy duty glycerin coolant suitable for use in virtually any engine application.

Looking for a nitrite free coolant / antifreeze? See IceClear HD.

PERFORMANCE
BioTherm Fluids HD meets the requirements of ASTM D7714 (Glycerin Base Engine Coolant for Automobile and Light-Duty Service) and ASTM D7715 (Standard Specification for Fully-Formulated Glycerin Base Coolant for Heavy-Duty Engines). Our corrosion package provides outstanding extended protection against liner pitting and corrosion of steel, copper, brass, solder, cast aluminum, and cast iron. BioTherm Fluids HD lubricates pumps and valves, provides excellent scaling resistance, is fully compatible with gaskets, seals, elastomers and other non-metallic pump and engine parts, offers a freeze point of -31° F, burst protection to -50° F. BioTherm Fluids HD provides extended life up to a 350,000 mile change interval in properly maintained engine systems and up to 3 years in static systems or low temperature systems.

USDA Biopreferred logoSAFETY/ENVIRONMENT
BioTherm HD is the leader in quality, safety and environmental concerns and is a 100% certified USDA Biobased Product in the USDA BioPreferred® Program. BioTherm HD is readily biodegradable, non-toxic, non-hazardous and has a neutral pH. Glycerin is considered “GRAS”, (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration).

APPLICATIONS
Designed for industrial and environmentally sensitive coolant / anti-freeze / heat transfer and secondary refrigerant applications, BioTherm Fluids HD is a perfect glycol replacement and can be used in virtually all gasoline, diesel and natural gas engines and other applications such as:

• Fleet/Automotive
• Boilers and other Closed Loop Systems
• Solar Systems
• Geothermal
• Floor Heating Systems
• HVAC
• Hydrostatic/Pressure Testing

Looking for a nitrite free coolant / antifreeze? See IceClear HD.

FLUID TESTING
HD testerBrix MeterBioTherm HD is a glycerin based product, DO NOT use testers designed for glycols. Freeze point range can quickly be determined by a special specific gravity type tester (pictured left) available from Orison or more accurately by a Brix refractometer (Brix pictured right). Recommended drain and recharge with BioTherm HD if Brix value is less than 37.0 as this indicates the product has been diluted by at least 20%. A conversion chart showing Brix readings and freeze point is also available from Orison. Do not use glycol testers to determine freeze point protection.

HD Test StripsWe also offer a bottle of 50 custom test strips (left) which are a quick and easy way to identify levels of inhibitor, freeze point and pH in the field. Simply dip the tester in BioTherm HD and compare the color coded results on the label. These test strips are specifically designed for BioTherm HD. Do not use glycol testers to determine freeze point protection.

 

WHAT ABOUT MIXING FLUIDS
Although no negative effects are expected, mixing antifreeze/coolants is not recommended due to varying freeze point depressants and corrosion inhibitor technologies which leads to difficulties determining actual freeze point protection and corrosion inhibition properties. Use only BioTherm HD in the system.

OUTSTANDING BENEFITS AND FEATURES:

The chart below is supplied as a guide for diagnostic / maintenance purposes. The values are calculated values and are only approximations. BioTherm HD is ready-to-use and not to be diluted as the result would weaken the corrosion inhibitor package. Custom blending is available.

MAINTENANCE DIRECTIONS
1. Use straight, DO NOT DILUTE.
2. Drain cooling system completely* and flush with HD COOLING SYSTEM CLEANER to remove scale & rust build-up. Use only BioTherm Fluids HD in the system and fill only after system has been completely drained and flushed. Do not mix with other coolants / anti-freeze / heat transfer fluids or chemicals.
3. Use ONLY NITRITED OR CHEMICAL FREE FILTERS.
HD extender4. Check fluid level on regular maintenance schedule. Top off with only undiluted BioTherm Fluids HD if system is low.
5. Test fluid for freeze point levels every 50,000 miles, 1500 hours or every 6 months, whichever comes first. Recommended drain and recharge with new BioTherm Fluids HD if Brix value is less than 37.0 as this indicates the product has been diluted more than 20%.
6. Add BioTherm Fluids HD Extender (shown right, available below) every 100,000 miles, if nitrite levels show below 800ppm or as Orison identifies per lab analysis; whichever comes first. BioTherm Fluids HD lab analysis is available through Orison.

*NOTE-even after draining/ flushing cooling system, residual water may remain in the block. Be sure to check with tester after filling to determine HD has not been diluted too much. If necessary, drain and refill.

BioTherm HD can be used in any state in non-automotive applications. Current state laws do not allow for glycerin to be utilized for automotive engine use in CA or NV. (We have also chosen not to register for use in NC). Registration for all other states requiring registration for automotive use has been submitted.
