DESCRIPTION

Black Swan's Freeze-Guard AG - Aluminum is a concentrated, non-toxic anti-freeze that prevents freezing of heating, cooling, and fresh water systems.  Safe for use in systems with plastic and rubber components.  Contains additives to prevent corrosion.  For use in homes, apartments, boats, trailers and recreational vehicles.  Provides freeze protection to -60°F and burst protection to -100°F.  Freeze-Guard AG-Aluminum contains special inhibitors that allow it to be used in a system containing aluminum parts. The regular Freeze-Guard products cannot be used in systems containing aluminum.

Freeze-Guard AG - Aluminum is not intended for automotive cooling systems.
 


DIRECTIONS

  1. Drain all water in system through faucets, petcocks and other openings.
  2. After being completely drained it is very helpful to clean the system out with water to remove dirt, scale, and other foreign matter.  This cleaning process will help get better freeze protection and will improve the energy efficiency of the system. 
  3. Close all outlets previously opened.
  4. Determine what freeze and burst protection is required. Consulting the manufacturer of the system is strongly recommended.  Determine the protection you need and use Table A below to determine what concentration to use Freeze-Guard AG - Aluminum in. 
  5. Use Table B to determine how much Freeze-Guard solution to add to the system.
  6. Add Freeze-Guard solution to the system.  There are a number of ways to do this. One method is to remove the air vent at the highest point in the system and pour the Freeze-Guard solution in at this point. Another method is to remove a fitting, valve, elbow, etc, in the boiler and pour Freeze-Guard solution directly into the boiler. Another possible method is t use a small pump to pump the Freeze-Guard solution into the boiler through the boiler drain valve.  Be sure to provide an air exit as the Freeze-Guard AG - Aluminum solution is introduced.
  7. Use Freeze-Guard Test Strips to test fluid after installation to make sure proper amount of Freeze-Guard is present. 
  8. At least once a year use Freeze-Guard Test Strips to determine the freeze and corrosion protection of the system.  If the corrosion protection is not adequate we recommend adding Freeze-Guard Inhibitor to the system.  If the freeze and burst protection is not adequate either add more Freeze-Guard solution to the system or totally replace the Freeze-Guard solution in the system with a fresh solution.
