IceClear AF


Glycerin Antifreeze / Heat Transfer Fluid
Approved for incidental food contact applications

IceClear HD glycerin antifreeze / coolant / heat transfer fluidDESCRIPTION
IceClear® AF is a patented non-toxic, non-glycol, biobased anti-freeze / heat transfer fluid with a food grade multi-metal corrosion inhbitor which, as is, meets ASTM D1384. Made with highly refined materials, AF is NSF registered with an HT1 rating, allowing use where incidental food contact is possible. AF is specifically formulated as an alternative to petroleum derived 50% propylene glycol (PG) based anti-freeze fluids for industrial low temperature, non-automotive applications, especially those with environmental concerns:

IceClear AF is also supplied without the corrosion inhibitor package under the name IceClear PGX.

For Heavy Duty, Heated and/or Engine Related Applications, Use IceClear HD or BioTherm Fluids HD.

OUTSTANDING BENEFITS AND FEATURES:

NSF logoNSF Registered
This product is acceptable for use as a heat transfer fluid where there is possibility of incidental food contact (HT1).

Won’t Dry Out
Due to its viscous nature and hygroscopic character, IceClear® AF will not dry out after initial application, making it effective for extended periods of time as an antifreeze and a dust suppressant.

Environmentally Friendly
USDA BioPreferred Label 100%AF is a 100% certified USDA Biobased Product as tested by ASTM D6866 through the USDA BioPreferred® Program. IceClear® AF is non-toxic, non-corrosive and is fully biodegradable, offering a lower BOD/COD than glycol.

IceClear® AF has been tested to OECD 310 with results showing it is "readily biodegradable" meaning that there is unequivocal evidence that IceClear® AF is rapidly mineralized to inorganic components and biomass. IceClear® AF also meets the definitions of "inherently biodegradable" and "ultimately biodegradable" meaning that there is a reasonable expectation that they will eventually be completely mineralized in aerobic environments.

Cost-effective
IceClear® AF is formulated from complex carbohydrates derived from renewable resources and/or process side streams that facilitate cost-effective and not subject to the market swings of glycols.


Testing

specific gravity testerIceClear® AF is a glycerin based product, DO NOT use testers designed for glycols. Freeze point range can quickly be determined by a special tester (pictured left) available from Orison or more accurately by a refractometer (Brix pictured right) and a conversion chart for glycerin.

refractometerIceClear® AF is slightly more viscous than conventional antifreeze materials. As such, it adheres to particle surfaces and clings to transportation and conveying equipment with little run-off and settling. This prevents freezing, clumping and sticking, and keeps product moving freely.

 

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 IceClear® AF in the system.

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

Note: IceClear® AF is designed as a ready-to-use. It may be diluted, however, it may weaken the corrosion inhibitor package. Diluting this product more than 20% with water may be subject to bacterial contamination.
