Advice for testing coolants.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have been thinking. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

I am thinking about testing different home made coolants and mixtures for possible loop setups.

I would test with different tubing and copper and brass metal pieces.


So what do you people think would replicate or test the best.

1. Filling glass jars with different mixtures and simply adding the test pieces of tubing and metal pieces in them. Then sealing it and keeping it a window ledge, shaking it everyday for a few minutes to keep it from becoming stagnant.

2. Using a small plastic fish tank filled with the coolant and using a cheap pump to pump the coolant through the tubing and over the test pieces of copper and brass. (this would cost a lot more but, I believe give a better result).

What do ya say?

As a former research chemist, and having done similar testing,
I'd use method 1, but no sun (eliminate optical bleaching of colors),
And no shaking, it's superfluous.
