Abstract

The present invention relates to heat-transfer concentrates for solar installations, containing a) from 92 to 99% by weight of at least one polyglycol of the formula R—O—(CH2—CH2—O)n—H, in which n is an integer of from 3 to 500 and R is H, a C1- to C4-alkyl group or an aromatic radical having 6 to 12 carbon atoms, b) from 1 to 8% by weight of at least one corrosion inhibitor, with the proviso that its content of ethylene glycol and 1,2-propylene glycol is less than 0.2% by weight.

Independent Claims | See all claims (8)

  1. 1. A heat-transfer concentrate containing a) from 92 to 99% by weight of a mixture of triethylene glycol and tetraethylene glycol in a mixing ratio of from 3:1 to 1:3, b) from 1 to 8% by weight of at least one corrosion inhibitor, with the proviso that said concentrate has less than 0.2% by weight of ethylene glycol and 1,2-propolene glycol.
  2. 8. A method for transporting heat or cold in a thermal solar installation, said method comprising circulating a heat-transfer medium in said thermal solar installation, wherein the heat-transfer medium contains a heat-transfer concentrate and water, said heat-transfer medium consisting of a) from 45 to 55% by weight of a mixture of triethylene glycol and tetraethylene glycol in a mixing ratio of from 3:1 to 1:3, b) from 1 to 4% by weight of at least one corrosion inhibitor and c) from 45 to 55% by weight of water, wherein said heat-transfer concentrate has less than 0.2% by weight of ethylene glycol and 1,2-propylene glycol.
