  • purity
  • PROCESS was hired to investigate technical alternatives for generating n-hexane that would have a minimum purity of 95%, with 98-99% purity desired if possible. (processengr.com)
  • Four different distillation arrangements were examined to determine major operating characteristics (yield of purified n-hexane as well as utility requirements) depending on the hexane purity desired (95% or 99%) and whether the purified n-hexane would be removed as an overhead or bottoms product. (processengr.com)
  • The study also determined that a proprietary mol sieve process technology offered by a particular technology provider could be capable of generating the purity of n-hexane required. (processengr.com)
  • commercially
  • It was determined by PROCESS that although all of these methods were, to some extent, technically capable of generating purified n-hexane, only distillation and molecular sieves appeared to offer commercially feasible methods. (processengr.com)
  • study
  • Should the client decide to continue the n-hexane purification study, this report will serve as a technical basis for a detailed distillation design. (processengr.com)
  • leather
  • n-Hexane is sometimes used as a denaturant for alcohol, and as a cleaning agent in the textile, furniture, and leather industries. (wikipedia.org)
