PRESENTATION

IL-B2001 - Decrease of minimum operational temperature to -10 °C

Recent R&D development could now distinctly lower the crystallization temperature of IL-B2001 for ensuring a minimum operational temperature of -10 °C. 

However, the real crystallization temperature is well below - 30 °C.

The new additives makes an operation in cold environment possible without additional heating elements and diminishes the need of  insulation of piping and components.
