How do I determine the volume of glycol required for my cooling system?

It is often necessary to determine the volume of water held in a cooling system so that appropriate concentrations of corrosion inhibitor and/or glycol can be added.

The volume of water in your system is determined by adding the volume of water in your pipes, tanks, cooling equipment, and your process equipment. At your request, Dry Coolers can provide the cooling equipment volumes.

The following table may be used as a guide for determining the volume within pipes.
