What is Hydromx®?
A REVOLUTIONARY HEAT TRANSFER NANOFLUID THAT PROVIDES SIGNIFICANT ENERGY SAVINGS IN HEATING AND COOLING.
The Nanofluid Technology Behind Hydromx®
Hydromx®, is a revolutionary heat transfer nanofluid that utilizes Nano-Thermo™ technology. Hydromx® uses nano-particles that are suspended in a stable state to increase the speed of heat transfer, by heating up (or removing heat from) the fluid and transferring energy in a shorter amount of time, thereby requiring significantly less energy (and saving money).
Hydromx® is most suitable for closed-loop heating and cooling systems where efficiency is achieved by diminishing run-times of associated equipment. Hence, the life of the equipment is extended together with lower maintenance costs.
The NanoThermo™ technology of Hydromx® increases the heat transfer rate. No matter what the energy source, or how efficient the boiler or chiller is, Hydromx® improves the efficiency of the whole system by transferring energy more effectively.
Furthermore, Hydromx® is specifically formulated to prevent corrosion, calcification and algae in the systems. It is certified under the BuildCert Chemical Inhibitor Approval Scheme to inhibit corrosion of metallic and plastic parts, and prevent scaling up of the system, particularly the boiler.
The Green Heat Transfer Fluid
In order to protect the sustainability of the life on Earth, it is imperative that we decrease the amount of CO2 emissions that is released into the atmosphere. Nowadays, the CO2 emissions which are the single biggest cause of global warming, have become a big threat with the global increase in energy demand.
Hydromx® is one of the greenest projects of the world. The LCA and EPD (S-EP-00633) certifications which are prepared by independent testing and approval organizations show clearly that Hydromx® decreases the CO2 emissions by 25% compared to water. This decrease in emissions thanks to Hydromx® use spikes up to 37% when compared to a water-glycol solution.
It has been verified by the LCA and EPD reports that Hydromx® contributes to the new LEED v.4 standard in three different topics as a green and sustainable solution. These are:
- Optimizing Energy Performance
- Building Life-Cycle Impact Reduction
- Building product disclosure and optimization
Hydromx® contributes approximately 10 points for LEED qualification when it is used within new constructions.
According to the 2011 data of the UN regarding the environment, the yearly CO2 emissions worldwide have reached 28.8 Trillion tons. The IEA (International Energy Agency) data suggests that if only 5% of the world used Hydromx® today, the value of the yearly energy savings would exceed 50 Billion USD. This would also eliminate 86.5 tons of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere, equivalent to the CO2 absorbed by 231 million trees.
