Dow Introduces Line of Geothermal Heat Transfer Fluids in Europe
DOWCAL™ Geothermal Fluids Improve Performance & Safety for Ground Source Heat Pumps
HORGEN, Switzerland - November 09, 2015
The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) today introduced a new line of inhibited glycol-based heat transfer fluids intended for use in commercial and residential ground source heat pumps (GSHP). DOWCAL™ Geothermal Fluids, DOWCAL™ eGEO (ethylene glycol-based) and DOWCAL™ pGEO (propylene glycol-based), will provide European GSHP system designers, installers and their customers with greater confidence and peace of mind through enhanced energy and operational reliability.
Dow developed DOWCAL™ Geothermal Fluids to overcome the drawbacks of alternative fluids, providing greater assurance that geothermal systems will repay their initial investment costs in energy savings and in years of reliable, safe and economical operation. DOWCAL™ Geothermal Fluids offer reduced viscosity, increased heat capacity and thermal conductivity, and take advantage of the excellent heat transfer properties of water.
Find more information about DOWCAL™ pGEO fluid and DOWCAL™ eGEO fluid through one of the Company’s authorized distributors, ChemPoint. Dow and ChemPoint will officially debut the new fluid line at GeoTHERM, Europe’s largest geothermal expo, in Offenburg, Germany, this upcoming February.
