IceClear PGX


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

IceClear PGXDESCRIPTION
IceClear® PGX is a patented bio-based alternative to petroleum derived propylene glycol (PG) that can be used as a cost effective formulation substitute for PG in many commercial, industrial and agricultural applications, including the following:

IceClear® PGX is designed to mirror the properties of a 50% PG solution. It can be used as delivered or diluted to achieve required results. The chart below is supplied as a guide for diagnostic / maintenance purposes. The values are calculated values and are only approximations. Note: Glycerin dilutions of less than 40% may be subject to bacterial contamination.

IceClear® PGX is NSF registered (HT1) which allows it to be used where there is possibility of incidental food contact. IceClear® PGX is also available with a multi-metal corrosion inhibitor added as IceClear® AF, both products are HT1 rated.

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

freeze point depression chartDerived from agricultural materials or bio-based processes, this environmentally friendly product is engineered to match the freezing point performance of conventional antifreeze products based on glycols (see Figure 1 on right), but with the following advantages:

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® PGX will not dry out after initial application, making it effective for extended periods of time as an antifreeze and a dust suppressant.

USDA BioPreferred Label 100%Environmentally Friendly
PGX is a 100% certified USDA Biobased Product as tested by ASTM D6866 through the USDA BioPreferred® Program. IceClear® AF is non-toxic, contains no salts, heavy metals or solvents, it is non-corrosive, fully biodegradable (with a lower BOD/COD than glycol), and it will not affect combustion processes.

IceClear® PGX has been tested to OECD 310 with results showing it is "readily biodegradable" meaning that there is unequivocal evidence that IceClear® PGX is rapidly mineralized to inorganic components and biomass. IceClear® PGX 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® PGX 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.

Better Physical Properties
IceClear® PGX 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.


Trefractometeresting

specific gravity testerIceClear® PGX 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.

WHAT ABOUT MIXING FLUIDS
IceClear PGXAlthough no negative effects are expected, mixing antifreeze/coolants is not recommended due to varying freeze point depressants, which leads to difficulties determining actual freeze point protection. Use only IceClear® PGX in the system.
