Solar Antifreeze 20L
Most solar systems require a solar antifreeze solution to run though the pipework to prevent freezing in winter. This should be replaced once every 3 – 5 years to ensure it maintains its’ antifreeze properties and your solar system doesn’t develop leaks. If the system runs hot or stagnates regularly as in solar space heating systems the solar antifreeze solution should be checked annually.
We supply the premium quality Tyfocor Solar Antifreeze Solution as supplied by Kingspan Solar. It comes in 20L drums and can be shipped directly to your house/site. Perfect for new installations and for replacing used antifreeze when a solar system is being serviced.
Choose 1 drum for standard evacuated tube solar systems.
Choose 2 drums for standard Flat Plate panel solar systems
The antifreeze agent is polypropylene glycol which is a food grade antifreeze agent meaning it is non toxic if ingested. Please be sure to use polypropylene and not ethelyne glycol as is used in cars – ethelyne glycol is toxic.
The solar antifreeze solution also contains an anti corrosion agent which guards against pipe corrosion over time. Corrosion in pipes results in small solid amounts of debris being washed around the system causing a drop in efficiency and can cause issues with pumps and blockages. Using Tyfocor Solar Antifreeze helps ensure a long lived and high performing solar panel system.
This antifreeze solution is already diluted with deionised water, there is also no air bubbles contained in the solution so it is ready for use in any solar panel system. This is important as a concentrated antifreeze diluted on site will contain air. If there is air present in the solar antifreeze it will leave the solution when it gets hot and introduce air pockets in the pipe circuit which can cause the system to fail.
