In the bustling rhythm of harvest season, propylene glycol emerges as the unsung hero ensuring recently harvested fruits and vegetables stay cool during storage and packaging. Glycol chillers, powered by propylene glycol, serve as the first line of defense against spoilage. By maintaining cool temperatures, they ensure that the recently harvested fruits and vegetables retain their freshness and quality. This role might be unnoticeable until cooling systems fail or experience downtimes during the storage and packing period, resulting in the loss of entire harvests. This blow could reverberate widely, affecting both small family farms and large agricultural corporations.
Choosing a reliable propylene glycol to refrigerate the harvest chilling systems is key to not having setbacks during peak seasons. DOWFROST™ is made with the highest purity of glycol on the market and is fully formulated, meaning there is no need to add any supplemental chemicals to aid with freeze and corrosion protection.
Not to mention DOWFROST is made with pharmaceutical grade DOW PuraGuard™ Propylene Glycol USP/EP and when diluted with purified water provides freeze protection and low toxicity. Plain glycols or “home brews” can’t neutralize all glycol degradation acids and make water up to ten times more corrosive. Dow’s corrosion inhibitors and additives passivate metal surfaces to prevent corrosion and neutralize degradation compounds preventing pH drop. Dow’s formula also has thermal-oxidation stability that provides long-term protection.
DOWFROST is also made entirely from food grade raw materials conforming to FDA CFR 21 and NSF guidelines making it acceptable for use where there is possibility of incidental food contact.
Dow glycols have long represented the highest industry standards as Dow is one of the original manufacturers of glycol and continues to lead the way with emerging glycol technologies. As such, partnering with DOWFROST grants you access to Dow's testing facilities that can be utilized to properly maintain your glycol chilling systems.
