Criteria for calculation of the concentration-temperature domain of use of ice slurries are defined, which allows establishing a temperature-concentration chart relating the temperature and the antifreeze mass fraction. It is shown that the shape of the chart depends only on the thermodynamic properties (heat capacity, ice-liquid equilibrium, etc.) of the diluted substance. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd and IIR.
