BitCool has a 25 year shelf life in its original sealed container (steel drum). If you are using our 20L or 1000L HDPE containers they they should be stored in a place with not direct sunlight as the HDPE will breakdown over time due to UV damage. Note there is no temperature requirement for storage, neither excessive heat or cold will effect the characteristics of our Dielectric Coolants.
If you experience any contamination by dust, grit, or debris, this material (assuming its non-metallic) will have very little to no impact on the operational characteristics of our Dielectric Coolants. This type of debris can be easily removed from your system with a 30 micron spin-on Diesel Fuel Filter used as a by-pass filter or on a filter cart system.
You do want to remove the heat spreaders, but you can often move to a smaller one for most electronics due to the higher thermal density of BitCool.
