ZEI's ArcticREADY™ Outsmarts the Weather

ZEI's proprietary freeze conditioning chemistry that can keep you operating in -50 degrees C

CLEVELAND, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ZEI announced today the release of a premium freeze conditioning product, ArcticREADY™ Extreme.  ArcticREADY™ Extreme was specifically developed for freeze conditioning to keep mining operations running at extreme sub-zero temperatures. Now your business never has to stop because of adverse weather conditions.

During the winter months, untreated coal, aggregate and other mine resources can freeze together and can stick to railcars. Ultimately it can impact delivery schedules and increase downtime for plants.  ZEI for decades has provided freeze control solutions to answer the needs of industries.  While traditional glycol, salt and glycerin products are extremely effective, they tend to become problematic below -40 degrees C and eventually become either too viscous for effective use in extreme climate conditions.  The ArcticREADY™ Extreme product, however, is a formulation that overcomes the difficulties of working with other freeze conditioning agents in extreme climate conditions. 

Simply, ArcticREADY™ Extreme is a proprietary chemical that maintains low viscosity, almost half that of glycols, at extremely low temperatures – making it a superior product to work with.  In addition, the final freeze point of ArcticREADY™ Extreme is below that of glycols, salts and glycerin, without the corrosive properties of salt or the viscosity problems of glycerin at these operating temperatures. Best of all, ZEI is able to offer this product at a reduced cost as compared to current standard offering of glycols. 

"ArcticREADY™ Extreme allows our customer to be operable at temperatures down to -50 degrees C," said Dr. Timothy Drake, ZEI's Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "It is important to us that we establish a relationship with our customers that allow us to develop new technologies to meet their ever changing needs. We know that being prepared and reducing overall chemical consumption directly adds to the customer's bottom-line. We pride ourselves on making it possible for our customers to continue operations all year long."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
