Hanna HI3859 Glycol Chemical Test Kit
All required materials are included with the test kit, such as the reagent bottles and packets, plastic pipettes, and glass vials.
Yes / No
The presence of glycol in a sample is easily recognized in the form of an intense purple color.
Replacement reagents available
There is no need to buy a new kit when reagents are exhausted. The HI3859-025 reagent set can be ordered to replace the reagents supplied with the kit. This reagent set comes with 1 (125 mL) bottle of HI3859A-0 reagent, 25 packets of HI3859B-0 reagent, and 25 packets of HI3859C-0 reagent.
Ethylene glycol is widely used as a coolant and antifreeze. Its presence in motor oil or tranmission fluid is an indication of a perforated engine block or of a leakage in the cooling systems. The Hanna 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 mg/L (ppm). Ethylene glycol and other 1,2 glycols are determined by a two step reaction:
Step 1: Glycol is oxidized to two carbonyl groups under acidic conditions.
Step 2: The carbonyl groups react with the indicator in the HI3859C-0 reagent powder packet to give a colored solution.
