    Does Glycerin Freeze?

    Going to pick up a liquid (glycerin) filled vacuum gauge tomorrow. My shop is unheated and freezes a few times during winter. Do I need to store the gauge in a non-freezing environment? tks......

    It's a liquid solution, therefore there is a freezing point. Depends on the % of glycerin in solution:

    Looked at the chart on your link. Since I have no idea what concentration will be in the gauge, will just store it in my already overstuffed basement. tks for the info.
