For ice slurry calculations and modeling, it is important that they are performed with accurate thermophysical property values of the aqueous solution and of ice. For ice slurry applications there is a need for accurate freezing point data and for more basic thermophysical property data at low concentrations. The article covers some phenomena in connection with freezing of aqueous solutions. Charts with ice concentration curves as a function of temperature and additive concentration are given for a number of aqueous solutions. A main purpose of using ice slurry is to benefit from the latent heat or enthalpy difference at melting. The article shows how an enthalpy-phase diagram can be constructed, gives charts with enthalpy values and charts giving apparent specific heat as a function of temperature and concentration for aqueous solution of propylene glycol, ethyl alcohol and potassium formate. These charts for ethyl alcohol-water are in good agreement with works earlier reported on.
