In newer beer chilling systems a cold liquid is passed along tubes to a chiller plate (cast aluminium) acting as a heat exchanger, and then through the tap system (font) to keep the beer cold. The beer passes through tubes inside this chiller plate and becomes cold.

The liquid is made cold in a tank with refrigeration coils imersed in it, operated by a refrigeration unit.

The beer lines are wrapped together with the chilled liquid tubes in an insulation, called a python. The chilled liquid also causes condensation to form on the outside of the beer font.

GLYCOL is used as anti-freeze in a car radiator, as it lowers the freezing point of water.

By using GLYCOL as the chilled liquid the temperature can be lowered below zero degrees celcius making for a colder beer, and causing the condensation to form as ICE on the font.

The beer is not normally served below one degree celcius. No beer will freeze at temps above minus one degree celcius, and freezing point is determined by alcohol content. Importantly, the Glycol never actually comes in contact with the beer.

What can be used to absorb coolant leaks on the ground?

Sand will absorb cooling anti-freeze that has leaked onto the ground. Many auto-parts stores will offer other synthetic substances to absorb automobile fluids.


Is repairing an external transmission cooler supposed to make a car stop over-heating?

An external transmission cooler is normally added in line with a vehicles already existing transmission cooler built into the radiator its function is to cool the transmission only. Adding, replacing and or repairing a transmission cooler would only benefit the transmission by cooling the transmission fluid. The transmission cooler is used mainly for cooling transmissions that pull heavy loads like trailers but is also used a lot in racing to keep the fluid cooler which helps reduce transmission overheat or burnout. , EzForJesus

What is the difference between dipropylene glycol and propylene glycol?

Dipropylene glycol is produced as a byproduct of the manufacture of propylene glycol. Propylene glycol has hydrating propylene which synthesizes it. Dipropylene glycol is used in pesticides, polyester resins, plasticizers, and hydraulic brake fluids. Propylene glycol is used in preservatives for foods as a moisture retaining agent ins oral hygiene and cosmetic products.


Can i use Ethylene-glycol type coolant for Toyota Camry 1997?

Almost all coolant is ethylene-glycol. Even the new HOAT long-life coolants are ethylene-glycol. There are a few that have a different formulation. I'm guessing that the old "green stuff" will work fine. Some of the older cars used solder in various places in the cooling system/heater that was susceptible to attack by the HOAT coolants.
