Pentane

Pentane

Pentane is an organic compound with the formula C5H12 — an alkane with five carbon atoms. The boiling points of the pentane isomers range from about 9 to 36 °C. It has two isomers n-pentane and iso-pentane and a special variant as cyclopentane.

Due to its low boiling range and fast evaporation, MOL Group’s pentanes can be primarily used as environmental friendly blowing agents in the production of EPS and PUR industry. Usually, a mixture of normal, iso- and cyclopentane is used for this purpose in order to maximize the thermal insulation properties. As a sustainable, CFC-Free Hydrocarbon blowing agent, it has zero Ozone Depletion Potential and due to its low (<0,001) Global Warning Potential, it meets even the future needs of the insulation industry (sandwich panels, pre-insulated pipes, refrigerators, EPS boards, etc).

In addition, pentanes have a wide range of application, act as excellent refrigerant in geothermal power stations, solvent in catalytic processes, resins, propellant in aerosols and it is essential for gasoline production.

MOL Group’s pentanes are fractionated in our Gas Processing Plant in Algyő directly from the Natural Gas uniquely in the region.

Our product represents higher quality than pentane produced by oil refineries. Its minimum 95% purity and low contaminations make our product particular (with special attention to the sulfur content).

MOL Group offers you iso-, normal- and cyclopentane and a wide selection of pentane blends designated to fulfil the requirements of insulation, chemical and fuel industries. We produce the iso- and normal-pentane separately, so we can blend any tailor-made mixture upon your request.
