Glysofor L


Glysofor L is a universally useable heat transfer, refrigeration and anti freeze agent for industrial systems and technical, liquid carrying systems. Through its positive physiological and ecological rating, Glysofor L is especially suited to systems in operation in the areas of food processing, pharmaceuticals production, medicine and other hygiene-related areas. Glysofor L is neither a hazardous substance nor hazardous material. Glysofor L is equipped with a modern inhibitor system which protects against corrosion and guarantees long term, low maintenance operations.

Glysofor L does not corrode any standard sealing materials and is also suitable for mixed systems (multi metal installations). Glysofor L is supplied as a concentrate and is also mixable in all proportions with water, depending on the frost protection required. Glysofor L is free of nitrites, phosphates and amine. To ensure that the corrosion inhibitors are completely effective, the Glysofor L concentration must be at least 25 vol. %. This corresponds with a frost protection of up to minus 11 degrees Celsius. Areas of application and heating and cooling systems in the areas of food preparation, in biotechnology and medicine, and all other areas in which there are considerable requirements on the toxicological and ecological harmlessness.

Typical areas of application

Heating and refrigeration systems, solar systems, heat pumps, borehole heat exchangers, deep freeze chains and other areas with tough requirements on the levels of toxicological and ecological harmlessness.

Pursuant to the national and international classification criteria, Glysofor L is not a hazardous material. A toxic effect results neither from when it is in concentrated form nor from when it is diluted. The product is odourless and harmless to the skin. Product has no irritant effect which can lead to the irritation of the skin or to mucosa. Glysofor L is free of nitrites, phosphates or amine. The raw materials which the product contains possess the highest possible levels of purity. Glysofor L is formulated on the basis of 1.2 propylene glycol which fulfils the requirements of both the DAB as well as the European and the US pharmacopeia. 1.2 propylene glycol is permitted as an additive pursuant to the foods and additives regulations (status 10.07.1984) and as a solution and extraction agent (BGB (German civil code) 1.I p.897, appendix 2, list 9). In the USA, propylene glycol is categorized as a generally harmless food additive (Federal Register, as at 1.4.1985, § 184.1666). Glysofor L and its dilutions are easily biodegradable. Glysofor L is in the lowest water hazard class, WGK 1 (very limited hazard to water). In borehole heat exchangers with a volume of up to 200 litres, Glysofor L can be used harmlessly pursuant to § 7 of the VAwS (Law on materials hazardous to water, Germany) and VDI (Association of German Engineers) guideline no. 4640. Workplace related protection measures when using this product are not required. Glysofor L is not flammable; classification in one of the hazard classes for flammable liquids is omitted. Glysofor L is not subject to a labelling requirement, and is not a dangerous good according to the national / international transport regulations. The supply containers consist of mono-fraction PE and can also be recycled subsequent to use. The product should be kept sealed at all times. Due to its extremely high level of purity, the product should not be decanted into other containers or contaminated with other products.
