We're do I buy it
What do you want it for?
I would not bother adding it to the water as I've heard from others that you need to put a lot into a wfp tank to help stop the water freezing so can work out very expensive.
Maybe best person to ask is njones as I’m sure he has tried using it.
Do a search on google as loads of suppliers come up
Ebay I get it from. I usually put a drop in each barrel and that dose the trick.
Interesting….How much is a drop and what size barrel are we talking about?
I bought a Litre from maplins £15!
But at least I could work in sub zero temps.
How much did water were u able to get for litre of it damo
Well I was working in -4 and was adding a few drops to a
If there is wind forget it.
I was adding about 20ML at a gues.
It deffo stopped jets from
Freezing and jet pipes.
They freeze first usually.
I usually go threw about 400l water a day so am guessing about 300-350 ml
isopropanol freezes at -84,to stop water freezing at say -10 you'd need around about a 15% plus ratio mix,it would work out so expensive to run(i get it fairly cheap but at those ratios its well expensive to run your stystem on it),if you do get some,check the tds first it should be bang on zero-if it isnt its watered down-a common trick to make it go further,buyer beware on that one.
i take it your enquiring about ipa to stop water freezing during the day in use?if so buy one of those water heaters-will keep you working
there is a point though when you have to accept defeat and go home/have a cuppa-tommorrow is another day
should have read the posts first-duuurrrr,anything down to -5 just bang plain old screen wash in the butts(has ipa and other stuff in it-although check the tds after as the screenwash is diluted with tap water to make it all up,)the colour is only a dye to make it appeal to you-darker more concentrated etc.
how do i know this?local solvent company i use gives me all the info
