Pentane is a hydrocarbon solvent that’s derived from natural gas and crude oil.
Pentane, an organic compound, is a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional, older polyurethane blowing agents. Manufacturers around the globe are increasingly switching to pentane polyurethane processing equipment because of its lower cost and reduced impact on the environment, along with government-mandated regulations.
Polyurethane safety is a primary concern for all manufacturers of the versatile material. Needed and used more than ever across virtually every industry in a variety of forms, polyurethane needs to be produced at a high level, in an efficient fashion, and with the needed precautions to avoid risk to the workers and facilities that handle the material every day.
Whether your organization is in the aerospace, automotive, medical, or sporting goods industry, everything that occurs in your production environment is controlled and regulated in some way. When it comes to polyurethane processing, much of that control is set and monitored by a chemical metering system. These devices control how much material is distributed from a polyurethane storage system (such as a bulk chemical storage tank) to the mix head, where the material is then sprayed, poured, or otherwise distributed onto a specific surface. Chemical metering systems also control key aspects of polyurethane mixing ratios.Read more
