It is shown that under defined conditions gel is formed in the glycol from the glycol regeneration plants, which created significant operational problems. The results of laboratory research on the production of gels from polyethylene glycol water and water-glycol solutions as well as study of rheological properties of these gels and polyethylene glycol solutions are provided. It is shown that upon exceeding the certain shear rate value gels demonstrate abnormal rheological property (instant flow cessation).
