Koolance corrosion

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I broke my loop down after about 8 months, and found this.


Now I've had the block a while, but it's been in perfect condition, and was cleaned and flushed thoroughly with distilled water before going in to this loop. Koolance block and fittings, Koolance clear fluid, even a Koolance rad. So, probably aiming for EK next time, lol.

Ive had my 370 for ages with distilled water and silver lined tubing. I broke it down last year, and it was nothing like that. Everyone who runs "special" fluids with additives or dyes always find the issues with corrosion or gunk. Though your pictures make it seem like theres condensation beyond the seal.

There was definitely condensation. It was apparently enough to cause this mess, but not enough to let me see it on a leak test. Everything was dry in the case, but the block was effectively toast. The seal is apparently going in at least one spot I can see.

That picture will give me nightmares now. But definitely looks more like coolant seeping past the O-ring and drying up, rather than corrosion. Luckily nothing got fried.
