has anybody used alcohol instead of water ?? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Guys running chillers use de-natured and methanol alcohol in their loops all the time...Like 50 % alcohol 20% anti-freeze and the rest distilled...That has to be some thick stuff and hard on any plastic and rubber parts and the pump...They need it to keep their lines from freezing...

Plain WC'ing I wouldn't use it ...Here are the best 2 links on the net for WC'ing coolants, it will pretty well answer any questions you might have...

It's being done by a small company in Manchester, MA called Thermal Form & Function. They are using R134a in a 2-phase pumped loop. Reviewing their technology I'd say that in a few years it will simply be the way high power electronics are cooled. 2-phase is by far and away the best heat transfer process there is, period. Anyone care to prove me wrong?
