When Should I Use Antifreeze in My Dust and Odour Suppression Equipment?

It is recommended to dose SubZero Antifreeze into your dust and odour suppression equipment when the temperature drops below 2°C.

In most circumstances, Corgin's dust and odour suppression equipment will operate effectively in ambient air temperatures as low as 2°C.

However, in order to operate effectively at temperatures below this, it is recommended to dose SubZero Antifreeze into the equipment's water pipework.

Where installed Atomister systems are concerned, Corgin can retrofit a proportional dosing system to the existing control panel (Premier spec only) to ensure reliable and consistent dosing.

The dosing system can be thermostatically controlled to initiate dosing when the ambient air temperature falls below a predetermined level, e.g. +2°C. The dose rate can be set to afford an adequate level of protection to the system according to prevailing conditions.

As a general guide, we suggest the following dosing rates for SubZero Antifreeze:

Ambient air temperature ranging from +2°C to -2°C

Dosing rate: 10% volume to volume

Ambient air temperature ranging from -2°C to -5°C

Dosing rate: 15% volume to volume

Ambient air temperature ranging from -5°C to -10°C

Dosing rate: 25% volume to volume

Ambient air temperature ranging from -10°C to -15°C

Dosing rate: 33% volume to volume
