The glycerol-based heat transfer medium is a solution of glycerin in water with the addition of various additives and a dye.
The presence of glycerin in the coolant reduces its freezing temperature, which makes the heating system more resistant to malfunctions that lead to a temporary shutdown of the boiler.
The likelihood that the coolant on glycerine will freeze in the mains, which will lead to their rush and failure of the heating system, is substantially less than that which exists for systems using only water as the coolant.
Glycerine in the heating system is the main factor that influences the further choice of the project for private house heating systems, the type of boiler, the capacity of the installed heating devices (convectors or radiators), the power of the main pump and the list of materials used.
The ideal choice is a coolant based on glycerin, the chemical composition of which takes into account the possible results of its interaction with all substances currently used in the construction of heating boilers and heating lines for private homes (steel, cast iron, copper, aluminum).
Since otherwise, reactions that lead to electrochemical corrosion may occur.
The heat carrier, which contains glycerin in its composition, has a significantly lower crystallization temperature (the freezing temperature of glycerin is minus 30 degrees).
Glycerin is explosive and fire-safe. it does not ignite at all.
Such coolants are harmless to health.
The level of heat transfer is much higher than that of other heat carriers.
