BioFROST® FIRE38 PG


Wet Fire System 38% Propylene Glycol Antifreeze / Winterizer

 

DESCRIPTIONBioFROST Fire38 PG
BioFROST® Fire38 PG is a biobased, non-toxic, inhibited propylene glycol/water blend designed for all non-galvanized metal wet fire sprinkler systems. Fire38 PG is factory pre-mixed to NFPA guidelines of a 38% propylene glycol solution and is considered “GRAS”, (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration).

OUTSTANDING BENEFITS AND FEATURES:

Safety / Environment

Fire38 PG is the leader in quality, safety and environmental concerns. We utilize only highly purified and/or food grade biobased propylene glycol. Fire38 PG is readily biodegradable, non-toxic and non-hazardous. Propylene glycol is considered "GRAS", (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration).

refractometer
Testing

Freeze point range can quickly be determined by a propylene glycol refractometer (pictured right).

MAINTENANCE DIRECTIONS
1. Follow original equipment manufacturer’s instructions for adding antifreeze.
2. Test fluid prior to filling system.
3. Evacuate all water/fluid from system and drain drops per NFPA requirements.
4. Can be used with propylene glycol only based technology. Do not mix with other non-propylene glycol anti-freeze/heat transfer fluids or chemicals.
5. Follow NFPA guidelines for testing the fluid after filling. Samples should be taken from a minimum of a high point and low point. Results should be comparable to each other and to
the sample of the fluid tested prior to filling system.
6. NFPA requires a tag to be affixed to the riser indicating the date tested or replaced, the type and concentration by volume of fluid used, system capacity (in volume), contractor name and license number and a statement indicating if the entire system was drained and replaced with antifreeze.

The use of Fire38 PG should be in conformance with any/all state, local and NFPA requirements. NFPA 25 requires the freeze point of the system should be tested at least once/year to confirm proper concentration and freeze point of the fluid.

*NOT FOR USE WITH GALVANIZED or CPVC SYSTEMS* - Please use Fire 48 for galvanized and CPVC systems
