Triethylene Glycol (TEG) Introduction

Triethylene Glycol, also known by the names TEG, Triglycol, and Trigen, is a sweet-tasting, viscous, colorless liquid with the chemical formula of C6H14O4.

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is composed of six carbon atoms, fourteen hydrogen atoms, and four oxygen atoms.

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is one of the most useful products in the chemical and petrochemical industry and it’s famous for its hygroscopic ability and its dehumidify feature to absorb moisture from different types of fluids.

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is one of the by-products of the chemical reaction between Ethylene Oxide and water at high temperatures with silver oxide as the catalyst

The highest Triethylene Glycol (TEG) grade is achieved when the chemical reaction occurs in neutral or acid-based environments

Based on the latest market information, it’s estimated that world consumption for Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is above 175 metric tons per year

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is used widely in the industry and due to its less toxic feature, it’s often used instead of Diethylene Glycol (DEG) in different industries.

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) Uses

The main Triethylene Glycol (TEG) usage and application is in the oil and gas industry, TEG is used widely in the oil and gas pipelines as a dehydrating agent that removes water from the gas and oil and avoids freezing, making the transfer of gas and oil very easier and more smooth

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is used as the plasticizer for the production of the Vinyl Polymer which is used for the manufacturing of PVC Resin, one of the most used products in different industries especially for producing different pipelines uses for transferring a diverse range of fluids

One of the most popular and growing uses of Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is as an air sanitizer and cleaner, with the issues such as global warming and more pollution across the world, this application of the TEG will grow dramatically in the short-term and long-term future

The other uses and application of Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is as a mild disinfectant and as a dehumidifying agent in different air conditioning systems because of its low toxicity, low odor, and antimicrobial properties

Also, Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is used as a solvent for many products and as an intermediate in the production of diverse chemical and petrochemical substances and products

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) Grades

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is available in four grades, these are:

  • High purity grade
  • Industrial grade
  • Polyester grade
  • Antifreeze grade

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) Packing

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is packed inside the stainless steel, aluminum, or linked tank cars, tank trucks, and 225 kg drums.
