What is N-Hexan?

N-hexane, also referred to as hexane, has a molecular formula of C6H14 as well as a molecular weight of 86.2. It is a straight-chain saturated aliphatic hydrocarbon and also is acquired from petroleum breaking and also fractionation. Appearance is colorless, unstable fluid with gasoline scent, melting point (MP) is 95 ℃, boiling point is 68.95 ℃, vapor density is 2.97 (air=1), practically insoluble in water, conveniently soluble in chloroform, ether, ethanol. N-hexane is a natural solvent generally made use of in the production procedures of rubber, drugs, fragrances, shoemaking, natural leather, fabrics, furnishings, paints, etc. In recent times, n-hexane has actually been made use of as a diluent in adhesive manufacturing or as an organic cleaner, which has actually become the offender of work n-hexane poisoning events in my nation.

N-Hexan Application Fields

Since N-Hexan is an excellent low-toxic solvent, it is commonly made use of. The primary application areas are:

1. Grease seeping industry: Vegetable oil is generated by seeping approach and made use of as a solvent for grease removal. It is the main application direction of n-hexane items.

2. Pharmaceutical market: used in the prep work of some pharmaceutical intermediates.

3. Rubber market: produced via natural synthesis, such as isoprene rubber, butyl rubber, butadiene rubber, and so on 4. Chemical industry: polymerization responses and drivers, such as propylene and olefin polymerization responses.

5. Other industries: Preparation of essences in the everyday chemical market, extraction of energetic substances in the cosmetics sector, prep work of pigments in the food handling market, etc, cleansing of metal surfaces of machinery as well as equipment, as well as dilution of paints.

N-Hexan Raw Materials and Production

The raw material for N-Hexan manufacturing is naphtha or No. 6 solvent oil.

1. Desulfurization: First, the naphtha is subjected to a desulfurization procedure, and also the sulfur-containing naphtha is responded with natural sulfur to form inorganic sulfur, and after that the not natural sulfur is counteracted.

2. Dearomatization: The desulfurized naphtha is after that based on a dearomatization procedure to bring the fragrant hydrocarbon content in the naphtha to the required requirement.

Desulfurization as well as dearomatization are typically referred to as double hydrogenation.

As a matter of fact, it is an one-time dual hydrogenation.

3. Purification: The pre-treated naphtha goes into the distillation and also is cut according to the distillation range. It initially enters the light removal tower, as well as fine vapor and liquid are traded in the tower. The balance in the tower is established by controlling the temperature level, and the light elements are eliminated from the light components. Evaporate from the top of the light tower. Then, the certified combined parts enter the finished item tower from all-time low of the light elimination tower. The blended products undertake vapor-liquid exchange in the finished item tower, control the temperature level adjustment to establish a system balance in the tower, and also conduct distillation. After tasting as well as analysis, the mixed materials are verified to be certified and also go into Completed container.

N-Hexan Production Process

Many n-hexane production takes on hydrodistillation procedure, which is separated into two kinds.

1. Initial hydrogenate and after that extract, also called pre-hydrogenation. The raw material is warmed by heat exchange to get to the reaction temperature and gets in the hydrogenation reactor. Under the action of the catalyst, the desulfurization and aromatization reaction happens. The mixture of solvent oil and hydrogen goes into the separation storage tank for separation., hydrogen is recouped, as well as solvent oil enters the fractionation tower and is cut into finished products. In layman’s terms, after the raw products are hydrogenated, they should be fractionated and also cut into n-hexane and also other different kinds of solvent oils. The benefit is: all resources are dearomatized and desulfurized, making full use each area of the product.

The disadvantages are: big investment as well as high product consumption.

2. First distillate and after that hydrogenate, also called post-hydrogenation. When it comes to n-hexane, the raw material is first cut into crude hexane with a purification series of 66-69. The pureness of the unrefined hexane is substantially boosted, and due to the fact that benzene is generally consisted of in n-hexane. alkane, so the benzene material in unrefined hexane is additionally significantly boosted, and afterwards hydrodebenzene and also desulfurization are executed to produce high-quality n-hexane. The benefit is that the investment is little and also the product consumption is little.

The disadvantage is that the unhydrogenated component can not be effectively used.
