Clariant Antifrogen® Online Calculator

 

A) Calculation method:

Explanations

With the help of this program you may run the following calculations:

  1. Starting with a fixed concentration for one of our Antifrogen® products the frost resistance temperature range will be calculated.
  2. You define a concentration range for one of our Antifrogen® products and a table of values will be calculated. You may print or save this table or copy/paste it into an Excel spreadheet.
  3. Starting with a fixed frost resistance for one of our Antifrogen® products this program will calculate the necessary Antifrogen® concentration.
  4. You define a temperature range for one of our Antifrogen® products and a table of values will be calculated. You may print or save this table or copy/paste it into an Excel spreadheet.
  5. Starting with a fixed concentration you define a temperature range and a temperature interval (increment) for one of our Antifrogen® products. A table of values will be calculated. You may print or save this table or copy/paste it into an Excel spreadheet.
  6. Starting with a fixed temperature you define a concentration range and a concentration interval (increment) for one of our Antifrogen® products. A table of values will be calculated. You may print or save this table or copy/paste it into an Excel spreadheet.

For your selected Antifrogen® product with offer the calculation formula in Basic, Fortran77, Fortran90, Pascal or binomial formula as ZIP file for download.

B) Select one of our Antifrogen® products:

 

C) Enter desired concentration ({0} to {1}% [v/v]):

A concentration of {0}% v/v results in a frost resistance down to {1}°C.

The value you entered ({0}% v/v) is either too high or too low. Enter a value between {1} and {2}% v/v an.

No corrosion protection at <{0}% v/v!

C) Enter desired frost resistance ({0} to {1} °C):

Frost resistance down to {0}°C requires a concentration of {1}% v/v

The value you entered ({0}°C) is either too high or too low. Enter a value between {1} and {2} °C an.

C) Enter concentration range ({0} - {1}% [v/v]):

 - 

D) Enter increment in % [v/v]:

C) Enter temperature range ({0} - {1}°C):

 - 

D) Enter increment in °C:

About Antifrogen® frost protection

Antifrogen® frost protection is dependent on the mixing ratio with water. Recommended minimal usage concentration for Antifrogen® N is 20 % v/v. Corrosion protection will be less effective for higher dilutions. Antifrogen® N has the advantage of a higher frost resistance compared to Antifrogen® L. On the other hand, Antifrogen® should not be used too highly concentrated because then the heat transfer is poor and there is pressure drop.

Practical experience has shown frost resistance over the following temperature ranges to be adequate:

Hot water heating systems -10 to -20°C
Earth-buried collectors combined with heat pumps -10 to -15°C
Other external circuits combined with heat pumps -20 to -25°C
Refrigeration circuits -10 to -40°C
Leak detection fluid -20°C

Antifrogen® frost protection is dependent on the mixing ratio with water. Recommended minimal usage concentration for Antifrogen® L is 25 % v/v. Corrosion protection will be less effective for higher dilutions. Antifrogen® L has a lower frost resistance compared to Antifrogen® N. On the other hand, Antifrogen® should not be used too highly concentrated because then the heat transfer is poor and there is pressure drop.
