Kilfrost has launched a first-of-its-kind heat transfer fluid which is set to revolutionise food and drink production globally, and for the first time ever provide a commercial solution to the long-standing efficiency-versus-toxicity challenge.

Its next generation ALV Plus fluid offers a viable alternative to monoethylene glycol (MEG) and monopropylene glycol (MPG). “Not only is ALV Plus certified as NSF safe for incidental contact with food and beverage, but it offers an absolutely premium performance” explained Kilfrost’s Chief Executive Gary Lydiate.

ALV Plus is a low viscosity heat transfer fluid which is formulated with organic, FDA approved inhibitors and viscosity modifiers. It has been developed to reduce the incidence of pressure drops, as well as to reduce pumping costs and increase hydraulic efficiency, and has an operational temperature range from -40°C to +40°C, outperforming MEG, MPG, Bio-PDO and ethanol-based heat transfer fluids. It also protects against corrosion and scaling, and is free from nitrates, nitrites, borates, heavy metals, and phosphates which are typical in many other standard industry products.

“Kilfrost ALV Plus is revolution in heat transfer which removes risk while adding efficiency and reducing operating costs, and we’ve been delighted with the early response from food and drink firms globally, who for the first time ever have been told that they can have both efficiency and non-toxicity.”
