    New Specification for Fully-Formulated Glycerin Base Engine Coolant for Heavy-Duty Engines

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D15.93 | Committee D15 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK27256

    1. Scope

    This specification covers the requirements for fully-formulated glycerin base coolants for cooling systems of heavy-duty engines. When concentrates are used at 40 to 60 % glycerin concentration by volume in water of suitable quality, (see Appendix X1), or when prediluted glycerin base engine coolants (50 volume % minimum) are used without further dilution, they will function effectively during both winter and summer to provide protection against corrosion, cavitation, freezing, and boiling.
