Energy saving products towards ‘net zero’ Part Two

Independent testing on new fluid science


EndoTherm has been independently tested and approved for energy saving, efficiency and performance, for reducing carbon emissions and carbon footprint, as well as for compatibility with inhibitors and for corrosion against all metals and rubbers (EDPM) according to British/EN/BSI/ISO standards by UKAS accredited Enertek International (an independent ISO17025 Test House) and BuildCert approved laboratories as well as its effects on surface tension, turbidity, viscosity and pH.


EndoTherm has been tested to all these standards and, when dosed at 1% of system volume, is safe and environmentally friendly to use.


In addition to the plethora of independent testing and extensive research already completed, further detailed academic work is currently being undertaken at the University of Chester, building on the work done by the University of Leeds (Fluid Dynamic and Thermodynamic theory) and the University of West Scotland (Chemical analysis), to write a number of peer reviewed white papers.


This involves very in-depth mathematical modelling to see how EndoTherm influences the boundary layer fluid dynamic characteristics and, thereafter, the boundary layer thermodynamic properties. This will, in turn, determine the precise mechanism(s) by which EndoTherm improves the overall heat transfer coefficients and saves energy (ongoing as part of a Master’s Degree and PhD project).


New uses in cooling systems


There is no doubt that there are many further industrial uses of this chemistry still to be discovered.


Endo welcomes any approach from interested parties towards that end. In that regard, 2020 saw the launch of EndoCool. Powered by the same chemistry in EndoTherm it is used in secondary chilled water circuits of wet cooling systems. Several successful applications worldwide and further studies confirm that EndoCool’s performance is the same as that of EndoTherm (i.e. the change the products make to water is temperature agnostic).


Like with EndoTherm, EndoCool works by changing the physical and thermal properties of water to improve the heat transfer efficiency and performance of wet cooling systems.


EndoCool works to cool down chilled water systems quicker and reach set temperatures faster, reduce chiller run times to maintain thermostatically controlled temperatures, reduce chiller approach temperatures (between condenser and chilled water loop), reduce compressor workloads, pumping loads and pumping conditions, increase the difference in temperature between flow and return temperatures and work synergistically with or without glycol antifreeze, as well as improve chiller system efficiency, performance and save energy.


Now is the time for action…In the current climate, the SECR angle on using EndoTherm and EndoCool is certainly on point. Private and public sector companies and organisations can reach for EndoTherm and EndoCool as an immediate solution, with no capital outlay, towards making significant energy savings and substantial reductions of carbon emissions, as part of their strategy for decarbonisation and their transition to a more sustainable future.
