PG Platinum is our flagship engine coolant. Based on an organic additive package, PG Platinum is designed to protect you, your engine and your environment.

Meeting Cummins’ stringent engine specifications CES 14603 and ASTM D6210, PG Platinum uses propylene glycol as the antifreeze/antiboil base. Propylene glycol is regarded as safe to handle and minimises risk to your wellbeing.

The organic additive package in PG Platinum is specifically designed to provide unmatched performance in liner pitting and corrosion resistance. It meets the specifications of all major engine manufacturers so you only need one product to satisfy all your coolant requirements.

With a service life of up to 1.5 million kilometres or 20,000 hours, PG Platinum delivers the best protection for your engine assets and fewer coolant replacements, thus reducing downtime and labour.

PG Platinum requires no additive* top-up so maintenance is minimised to just a simple test every six months to ensure the coolant is being maintained correctly. This also means chemical coolant filters are not required to replenish additive, making servicing easier.

*When correctly maintained in accordance with user instructions.

FAQS


Why do I need to change to PG Platinum Heavy Duty Coolant?

If you are using PG Plus there is no real need to change coolants. However PG Platinum meets a wider range of engine manufacturer specifications, making it a more universal coolant. PG Platinum also offers some extended life expectancy and maintenance benefits.
 

What improvements can I expect with PG Platinum?

PG Platinum uses an advanced formulation of organic acids to provide superior protection against corrosion and liner pitting.
 

What equipment can I use PG Platinum in?

PG Platinum is an advanced formula, heavy duty coolant that can be used in any engine.
 

What environmental benefit can I expect from PG Platinum?

PG Platinum is a NAPS free coolant, making it even safer for you and the environment.
 

What is NAPS free?

NAPS free means PG Platinum contains no Nitrite, Amine, Phosphate or Silicate. These compounds can have undesirable effects on the environment and make it more difficult to maintain coolant.
 

Is PG Platinum safe on my silicon seals?

Yes. PG Platinum contains no 2-EH (2-Ethylhexanoic acid), which has a detrimental effect on silicon seals.
 

How often do I service PG Platinum?

Every 6000 hours, add 1 litre of PG Platinum Extender to every 60 litres of coolant. Otherwise it is only necessary to test the coolant every 6 months with the 4-way test kit (part number CC36089). If the coolant requires servicing (when Molybdate is below 300ppm) then use PG Platinum Extender at a rate of 1 litre of Extender for every 60 litres of coolant.


How long does PG Platinum last?

PG Platinum is a life-of-engine coolant and, if properly maintained, has a life expectancy of at least 20,000 hours (in excess of 1.5m kilometres).


How do I test PG Platinum?

Testing the coolant is simple with the 4-way test strip that checks the additive level and glycol ratio. The test strip checks for the presence of Nitrite, indicating that the coolant has been mixed with a hybrid coolant. The 4-way test kit also checks pH levels in the coolant to indicate if it has been contaminated and needs to be changed.


What happens if I mix PG Platinum with other coolants?

The most obvious effect is a change in colour. The performance of the coolant will not be affected until large quantities of foreign coolant are added. Only 100% PG Platinum can give 100% PG Platinum protection.
 

What do I do if the nitrite pad changes colour during testing?

You can continue to use the coolant until a change is required and then completely re-fill the engine with PG Platinum.
 

What do I do if the Molybdate level is below 300ppm on the test strip?

Low Molybdate means improper top off practices, so review how the coolant is being maintained. Add PG Platinum Extender at the rate of 1:60 if the coolant is considered serviceable after testing.
 

Do I need to use chemical filters?

No. You MUST NOT use chemical filters with PG Platinum. You can only use non-chemical filters to protect your coolant system from damage caused by particulate matter that may enter the system.
 

How often do I need to change filters?

You will need to change your Fleetguard filters according to recommendations. Every oil filter change use standard service coolant filters or once a year use extended service coolant filters.
 

Are there any special handling requirements for PG Platinum?

Always use standard safety procedures when handling coolant. Refer to our Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for further information.
 

What colour is PG Platinum?

PG Platinum is red, which follows global conventions for NAPS free coolant.
 

Can I use my old refractometer to test glycol levels in PG Platinum?

No. You will need a new refractometer with the advanced formula PG Platinum.
 

What sizes does PG Platinum come in?

PG Platinum is available in 4ltr, 10ltr, 20ltr, 208ltr, 1000ltr and Bulk.
 

Is PG Platinum more expensive?

PG Platinum offers greater savings because of the longer life expectancy of the coolant when properly maintained as well as simplified servicing and maintenance, which reduces labour cost. PG Platinum also helps you reduce inventory as it is suitable for all engines.
 

How do I introduce PG Platinum to my fleet?

Only PG Platinum is needed on site. Topping up systems can commence immediately and full coolant replacement can take place at the next major service interval.
 

What about bulk storage tanks?

Bulk tanks need to be drained and cleaned first, then filled with PG Platinum. Different coolants should not be mixed in bulk tanks.


What is the proper chemical SCA (supplemental coolant additive) concentration for my engine?

For PG Plus, a chemical concentration of 0.3 – 0.8 UPL (units* per litre) should be maintained in your cooling system at all times. Or 3 – 8% by volume. (1 unit = approx 100ml of liquid additive.)
 

Is your SCA DCA4 inhibitor compatible with Nalcool/Penray additive?

Cummins Filtration's SCA is compatible with Nalcool/Penray chemicals. When testing a mixed coolant for SCA content, always use Cummins Filtration's CC2602 test kit for proper chemical concentration measurement.
 

What is the difference between DCA2 and DCA4?

The difference between the two forms of DCA is the chemical makeup. DCA2 is a borate/nitrite-based additive. DCA4 is a phosphate, nitrite and molybdate-based additive. DCA4 is recommended by many OE manufacturers, including Cummins, Navistar, Ford, John Deere, and others.
 

My cooling system is contaminated with rust, scale, oil or grease. What is the solution for these problems?

Cummins Filtration's cleaner Restore Plus eliminates rust, scale, oil and grease with its special acid-based formula.
 

How much DCA4 should be added at service intervals?

It depends on system capacity. If no test results are available, use 1% to 2% of liquid additive or 0.1 to 0.2 units per litre of coolant.
 

What is the probable cause of nitrite leaving the coolant while molybdate remains at normal level?

This condition is caused by excessive exhaust gas leakage into the coolant and/or topping off the additive package with some other nitrite-free additive.
 

My cooling system is contaminated with silicate gel. Can I remove this with plain water?

No. Cummins Filtration recommends using its alkaline-chelating cleaner Restore.
