Pentane-Plus is a mixture of unsaturated hydrocarbons. The product can be achieved by cracking petroleum fractions at high temperatures. The product then undergoes distillation process to separate it from pyrolysis gasoline. The compound is highly volatile and aliphatic in nature and does not get fused in water. Pentane-Plus is used in various chemical industries; however, high vapor detonation hazards are often during manufacturing thus can halt the production.
Pentane-plus has various industrial applications such as:
- transportation fuel
- as an additive for other oil mixes and heavy crude oil for smooth and easy pipeline transportation
