In my experience glycol tends to be low pressure. 15-20 psi. The fittings are rated for 600 WOG.
The problem isn't the pressure, it's chemical reactions and temperature.
Any seals would have to be safe to be used with Glycol.

Some manufacturers use lots of fillers in the their seals. They may with stand 200 psi @15C water pressure but may degrade quickly with interacting other chemicals or may shrink because of low temperature.

BrainEater's Glycol cooling system is a critical system to manufacturing process.
You may save a couple of thousands doing it yourself but if it fails how much would cost in lost production, downtime, clean up and repair cost.

There are some things that aren't worth cutting costs on.
