Green Glycol alternative

Our Freeze Block™ Coils are not just a product, they’re an investment towards reducing future maintenance, downtime, and coil failure. Here’s how they work:

  • Freeze Block™ Valves sense changes in pressure & temperature.
  • As a coil begins to freeze, a controlled volume of water is displaced from the coil to prevent coil freeze damage.
  • The Freeze Block™ valves then reseat to prevent flooding.
  • In many cases, eliminates the need for glycol, enhancing efficiency.
  • All coils come with a minimum 30-month warranty against freeze damage.
  • Add a Smart Coil System for instant notification of freeze events and a 48-month warranty.
  • Available for hot water, chilled water, and steam coils.

At temperatures 32°F and below, water can freeze and expand, causing excessive pressures that result in HVAC coil damage within a matter of minutes. Consequentially, expensive and time-consuming maintenance, coil repair, downtime, and potentially serious subsequent damage from the thaw and flood often occurs.

System failures frequently happen. Thanks to Freeze Block technology, you can add another layer of protection, should a freeze occur.

Go Green, Eliminate Glycol with Freeze Block Coils

Your HVAC system is the heart of your building’s climate control, but it doesn’t have to be a drain on your resources. Traditional methods of glycol coil freeze protectionfreeze protection, such as using glycol, can lead to high energy consumption and maintenance costs due to the substance’s thick viscosity and low heat transfer characteristics.

 

Freeze Block™ with a Smart Coil System can make for a great glycol alternative in the right situation. Learn how much you can save by switching to fluid coils protected with Cooney Freeze Block™.

Freeze Block Coil Warranty Specification

Why are my fluid or steam HVAC coils freezing?

At Cooney Engineered Solutions, we understand how costly frozen HVAC coils can be to replace. Our Freeze Block technology is the perfect solution for protecting your coils from rupture at freezing temperatures. Read more in our Guide to How HVAC Coils Freeze >>

Our Freeze Block eliminates worries and stress associated with burst coils, potential flooding, and downtime. Our technology is as freeze-proof as possible, preventing your HVAC coils and heating coils from needing costly repairs. 

What makes Freeze Block HVAC coils unique?

Cooney Freeze Block was developed and patented by Cooney Technologies over a period of years. Unlike obsolete technologies on the market, it responds to both of the following freezing scenarios: freezing from the outside in and freezing from the inside out. Our solution has been proven to respond to both pressure and temperature threats simultaneously.

Has this type of HVAC coil been used before?

Steam and fluid HVAC coils with Cooney Freeze Block are installed in HVAC systems all over the continent.

From Ford Motor Company to GlaxoSmithKline to The White House our freeze protection technology has found its way into a large number of HVAC systems.

We have over thousands of active installations over the last decade.

What maintenance do Freeze Block coils require?

Once a Freeze Block coil has been installed onto your HVAC units, maintenance is minimal. Because Freeze Block contains very few moving parts, and no complex or motorized valves, it requires little or no maintenance.

Can I retrofit Freeze Block technology onto an existing HVAC coil?

At this time, Freeze Block™ Technology cannot be retrofitted onto existing coils. Infield installation of Freeze Block technology would be expensive and difficult due to the amount of brazing required and the general lack of access to existing coils. 

You can order a new direct-fit replacement coil for any existing fluid or steam coil.

“We originally thought the coils ruptured when we found a patch of ice on the floor of the air handler. We were very happy that when our system failed, our coils did not rupture. Instead, the relief valves had discharged and when we thawed the coils they went back into operation with no leaks. We are happy that we went the extra mile and protected our HVAC coils with the Freeze Block technology. This event made believers out of us.” 

Roy Stein, The University of Pennsylvania

“These air handlers were a constant nuisance for the client; coils were rupturing every year. Since installing Cooney Freeze Block in 2011 we have yet to see a failure on any coils that were replaced by Herman Goldner Co., Inc. This product really does work.”
