What is Hydromx?
Hydromx is a revolutionary organic heat transfer fluid that contains cutting-edge
Nano Thermo™ Technology. Hydromx replaces water in closed loop hydronic
heating, cooling, geo-thermal and hydronic solar systems. HX has an operating
range between -30° F. and 250° F., and has been tested down to -109° F. and did
not solidify or burst!

This wide operating temperature range makes HX ideal for a replacement fluid
in systems that currently use ethylene or propylene glycol. HX has been tested
and proven to reduce energy costs and increase heat transfer by as much as
35%. Testing of HX was performed under strict laboratory conditions and realworld applications.

Is water the best option for transferring heat?
Water is a logical choice for the heat transfer fluid in a Hydronic system - it is easy
to obtain, relatively inexpensive and non-hazardous. However, it has a freezing
point that is above the minimum temperatures frequently encountered and it also
causes corrosion within the hydronic system over the long term – unless treated
with an inhibitor, at additional cost.
One of the characteristics of water is the fact that it conducts heat quite
effectively. However, there are a many other substances that perform a lot
better. A prime example is metal. The thermal conductivity of copper, for example,
is more than 600 times better than water! If a frost inhibitor (such as glycol) is
added to water, this makes the heat transfer efficiency of the system even lower,
as the thermal conductivity of glycol can be less than half that of water, depending
on the concentration.
So, in simple terms, we would expect our hydronic system to work more efficiently
if the heat transfer fluid behaved more like a metal than water alone.
Nano Fluid Research
Engineers have been working for decades to develop more efficient heat transfer
fluids for use in car motors and industrial equipment. Improved oils and coolants
would make possible more efficient engines. Such engines would be smaller and
less expensive, and their lower fuel demands and emissions would do less
damage to our environment.
Now, by manipulating atoms on the smallest of scales,
Scientists have created a next-generation fluid that may
revolutionize heat transfer. By adding tiny spherical particles
to a conventional fluid, researchers can improve by up to 40
percent its ability to transfer heat.
“Tiny” means no larger than a few nanometers — billionths

copper or copper oxide in liquids such as water or ethylene glycol.
What is Heat Transfer?
We have learned that heat (energy) is transferred by Conduction, Convection
and Radiation. Heat transfer always occurs from a region of high temperature
to a region of lower temperature. The two principal methods we rely on in
hydronic system efficiency is conduction and convection.
Conduction is heat transfer through a boundary between two systems.
Convection is heat transfer within a fluid. There are two types of convection,
“free” and “forced”. HX increases heat transfer by improving “free” convection.
Simple example of the three heat transfer methods.
What is Heat Transfer, Continued
Forced convection happens when the fluid is moving due to some outside
force, like a pump or a fan. Free convection happens when heat is
transferred in a still fluid, and the heating of part of a fluid causes motion in
a fluid. The increase in heat transfer above water can be readily seen with
our Hydromx demonstration unit.
The increased heat transfer using Hydromx is because of increased thermal
conductivity. Getting the heat from the source faster and more efficiently
will shorten the runtime of the source whether it is a boiler or a chiller.
We can expect the same performance when it comes to heat rejection. For
example improving dry cooler and heat exchanger performance through
increased heat transfer.
The bottom line? Any time we need to transfer heat from one place to
another using a liquid, Hydromx will outperform all other fluids on the
market today!
How Does Hydromx Work?
The transfer of heat occurs in two places in any heating system.
Initially, heat is transferred to a fluid, usually water, in a boiler. That
boiler may use natural gas, propane, fuel oil or electric as a fuel.
That heat, or energy, transferred to the fluid is circulated to an output
device or system. That device or system can be either hot water coils,
convectors, baseboard radiators or a radiant heat panel.
The second point of transfer is from the output device or system to
the area which it heats. That area can be a room, a entire building or
perhaps a snow melt system.
The goal is to create the same comfort level or the same system
performance using less energy. Hydromx meets this challenge!
Hydromx has out performed every fluid in laboratory tests and realworld applications.
Fouling and Corrosion Protection.
Fouling on heat transfer surfaces causes poor system performance and high
energy costs.
Corrosion in heating and cooling systems
is damaging, as much if not more, than
scaling. The results of corrosion can be
very expensive having to replace piping,
pumps and coils.
HX contains natural anti-fouling and
corrosion inhibitors eliminating the need for expensive conventional water

Freeze/Burst Protection.
HX, used in any closed loop hydronic heating, cooling, solar or geo-thermal
system, will provide freeze and more importantly, burst protection down to
HX provides this valuable protection with no
energy penalty as in propylene glycol.
Hydromx will perform up to four times as long
as propylene glycol.
Hydromx withstood a dry ice test at
-109° F. for 48 hours and did not burst!
