SunMaxx Solar, a leading, vertically integrated manufacturer of solar thermal systems and components, is pleased to announce that the solar industry leader has launched a custom Glycol XT.
SunMaxx Solar’s custom solar-formula Glycol XT is a 50/50 mixture of 1,3-Propanediol and water. With a long list of advantages, including a lower price, this heat transfer fluid has a higher thermal conductivity than standard propylene glycol, while maintaining the original’s very low toxicity. SunMaxx Glycol XT also has a greater temperature range than standard propylene glycol. It can go just as low without freezing to -17°F (-27°C), and can withstand temperatures as high as 349°F (176°C) without breaking down.
In addition to all its other good features, Glycol XT is also a very green product. Unlike typical propylene or ethylene glycols, which are made from foreign oil or natural gas, SunMaxx Solar Glycol XT is made from sustainable, bio-based raw materials. And production emits 40% less green house gas and uses 20% less energy to produce than standard propylene glycol.
SunMaxx Solar CEO Adam Farrell notes, “No other brand of glycol can beat this level of performance for solar thermal use. This environmentally friendly product is our solar glycol of choice for thermal transfer. XT works perfectly in solar thermal systems, and provides a more efficient option than does normal propylene glycol.” SunMaxx Solar Glycol XT is proudly made in the U.S.A. and, best of all, it’s 100% renewable.
