Loading tires with sugar beet juice?

Recommended Posts

mowerman1193
Was talking to my uncle about loading my new tires with the WW fluid..He put new tires on his farm tractor and had the place load them..He says they use sugar beet juice or something now..I guess its non corrosive and non toxic..But the guy told him if you get a leak you will sure know it as it smells horible.. I guess this stuff weights about 13 lbs per gallon.I wonder what it would cost to have some of these smaller tires loaded with the stuff..I doubt it would be as cheap as my WW fluid,LOL Has anyone heard of this or is he telling me another one of his wild made up stories he is so famous for,LOL

Think I will too Marty..... Raised sugarbeets up to about 12 years ago, If that juice gets to smelling anything like decaying beets I don't want anything to do with it....:p;)

I don't know about the expansion rate of freezing liquid sugars but I do know that they do set up when cold. I know at 20 deg F that it would get stiff enough that it will not flow in the tires but stay as a lump as the tire rotates. Depending on the concentration levels of the sugars usually they need to be stored warm (100 deg F) to make them pumpable. Any liquid sugar (sucrose, fructose, dextrose, etc.) will get thicker as it gets colder (syrup). So logically I think it will freeze.
