7 · Properties of mixture water/glycol. Table 8-3-1 - Properties of mixture Water/Glycol Extract from VDI-Warmeatlas Dd 17- VDI-Verlag , Dusseldorf 1991. Substance and % by volume in mixture: Minimal working temperature [o C] Temperature [o C] Density [kg/m 3] Specific heat [kJ/kg.K] Thermal conductivity [W/m.K] Dynamic viscosity
Kinematic viscosity of mixture is [m 2 /s]: Contraction of volume of mixture is [%]: The calculation is based on the parameterisation in Cheng (2008) Ind. Eng. Chem. Res. 47 3285-3288, with a number of adjustments (see below), which are described in Volk and Kähler (2018) Experiments in Fluids 59 75.
The density of ethylene glycol is higher than water - check the specific gravity (SG) table above, so the net impact on the heat transport capacity is reduced. Example - the specific heat of an ethylene glycol water solution 50% / 50% is 0.815 at 80 o F (26.7 o C). Specific gravity at the same conditions is 1.077.
Density, viscosity, surface tension and molar volume of propylene glycol + water mixtures at 293, 298, 303, 308, 313, 318, and 323 K are reported, compared with the available literature data and the Jouyban–Acree model was used for mathematical correlation of the data.
Thermal conductivity, density, and viscosity of ethylene glycol – water mixtures have been measured. The measurements have been performed in the temperature range from ‐−20°C to 180°C for thermal conductivity, from ‐−10°C to 150°C for density, and from – 10°C to 100°C for viscosity.
The density, viscosity, and thermal conductivity of ethylene glycol + water, diethylene glycol + water, and triethylene glycol + water mixtures were measured at temperatures ranging from 290 K to 450 K and concentrations ranging from 25 mol % glycol to 100 mol % glycol.
