Ethylene GlycolIndustrial Grade Glycol

Ethylene Glycol (EG), also referred to as Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG), has traditionally been selected for cooling and heating systems where toxicity is not considered sensitive. E.g. injection molding, autoclaves, transformer cooling etc.

Ethylene Glycol solutions have good heat transfer characteristics and are less viscous than Propylene Glycol solutions - they are however classified as toxic. To avoid issues associated to toxicity and maintain similar levels of thermal performance to EG, then DTX and Potassium Formate based solutions should be considered.

  • Summary - Rating: BSuitable for industrial process cooling, AC and other applications where a toxic classification is not an issue. Good thermal and pumping characteristics.

  • Efficiency - Rating: BHigh thermal conductivity and low viscosity at sub-zero temperatures, results in increased heat transfer efficiency and reduced energy demands.

  • Antifreeze - Rating: AProvides protection down to -50°C and lower concentration (% volume) is required to achieve the same freeze-point protection, when compared with NTP, USP, ECO2 and ECO3.

  • Corrosion Control - Rating: ALong-Life formulation with synergistic corrosion inhibitors to exceed BS6580 and ASTM D1384 standards. Also contains broad-spectrum biological inhibitors and polyacrylates to prevent scale precipitation.

  • Toxicity - Rating: DClassified as Harmful but usually considered as Toxic. Suitable for industrial cooling systems where toxicity is not an issue.

  • Density:1.08 -1.2 g/cm³ depending on inhibitors

  • pH:7.5 - 9.0 depending on inhibitors

  • Boiling Point:>100°C

  • Characteristics:a clear, slightly viscous liquid. It is mildly sweet to the taste and has a non-pungent but characteristic aroma

  • Available in: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 205 & 1000 litre containers and bulk tankers.
