HI-3859 Glycol Test Kit information

Hanna's extended description

Ethylene Glycol is widely used as a coolant and antifreeze. Its presence in motor oils is an indication of a perforated engine clock or of a leakage in the cooling systems. The HI-3859 Glycol test kit can be used for water as well as oil samples to determine traces of ethylene Glycol and other 1,2 Glycols above 30 ppm. For better results test samples from used motor oil since samples from new oils can give erroneous positive results. Never test oils from hot engines.

Use the HI-3859 Glycol standard 0.025% included in the kit to easily recognise a positive result in the form of an intense purple colour.

The HI-3859 test kit is supplied with the following; 125 mL Glycol reagent A, 25 packets Glycol reagent B, 25 packets Glycol reagent C, 25 mL Glycol standard 0.025%, 3 mL plastic pipette, 1 mL plastic pipettes (25), 10 mL glass vials with caps (2) and brush.
