Best Fluid to Use for Charpy Impact Testing

  1. Apr 29, 2014 #1
    Hello Guys,

    I have been doing Charpy tests for the past couple of months and notice that I can't get rid of the water that keeps freezing and sinking to the bottom of the my chiller. It's becoming more of a hassle that my agitator stops due to the water freezing at the bottom of the chiller. What are some Heat Transfer Fluids and/or methods that I can use that will reduce this.

    Chiller: FTS Systems Multi-Cool: Low Temperature Bath / Circulator
    HTF: Syltherm XLT (HT-30)

    Any hands on experience or recommendations on this will be greatly appreciated!
