Can dyes cause a blockage in a water cooling System?
Last updated a year ago
There are several root causes to the issue of blocking and that falls down to either plasticizer, inhibitors or algae the latter being the rarer of the causes. With tubing a lot of them contain plasticizer and these leach out of the plastic and into the water. This then gathers around the Pins of the block and over time builds up into a sticky residue. What happens at the same time is the dye in the water cooling fluid then “dyes” the residue making people think the route cause is the dye which it is not. The same happens with Inhibitors and algae but in a different manner.
