Insights from OWI experts on complex issues effecting our industry
99% of the coolants produced are ethylene glycol-based. Globally, there will continue to be innovation on corrosion inhibitor technology as engine metallurgy or cooling system requirements change; but it's unlikely ethylene glycol will ever have a serious contender to replace it. EG is readily available worldwide, well priced (compared to any contenders) and provides the best coolant parameters of any of the glycols. And now that embittering agents are added, ethylene glycol is here to stay.
Through the decades, as raw material costs increased, recycled and green products have grown in popularity and have been continually developed and created as a more economical and environmental alternative.
The most predominant technology to meet the EPA’s stringent NOX and particulate matter emission requirements form 2010 is the SCR (selective catalytic reduction) system, SCR employs the use of DEF (diesel exhaust fluid). Thus, the volume of DEF consumed has grown steadily each year along with the distribution system and the number of customers that use and touch DEF.
As this industry grows, we gain more experience, and our best practices for DEF handling evolves. In this white paper we will tackle the most common questions regarding DEF purity; specifically shelf life and the handling of DEF in hot or cold environments
