(also eutectic temperature)
The temperature at which a particular eutectic mixture freezes or melts.
- It has a lower eutectic point than NaCl and can work at lower temperatures.
- Above the eutectic temperature, solutes in the liquid phase of ice are concentrated by a factor fc = 1 / V L, where V L is the fraction of liquid water in equilibrium with ice.
- Once the interface is brought up to the proper eutectic temperature, the heating mechanism must maintain that programmed temperature with minimal overshoot.
