Xtraction Grade Propane™
99.5%+ BTX Free - Odorless - 3rd Party Analyzed
Veratex's Xtraction Grade Propane™ is the highest purity Propane produced in the US for the extraction market. We start with high purity fractionation, refining the non-odorized Propane to 99.5%+ purity. We then further process the Xtraction Grade Propane™ to remove any residual moisture and eliminate all sulfur compounds that can be naturally occurring in NGL's. Once we complete the second cleaning we load the processed Propane into dedicated non-odorized clean transports. Once loaded in the transport we pull a sample analyzing purity, moisture, sulfur compounds, BTX. Only when the 3rd party analytical verifies that the Propane meets the high standards of Xtraction Grade™ is it then transferred into bulk storage or dispatched for bulk delivery. Veratex's Xtraction Grade Propane™ is a proprietary Propane not distributed by any other gas supplier within the United States.
Propane is a three-carbon alkane gas (C3H8). It is stored under pressure inside a tank as a colorless, odorless liquid. As pressure is released, the liquid propane vaporizes and turns into gas that is used in combustion. An odorant, ethyl mercaptan, is added for leak detection.
Propane has a high octane rating, making it an excellent choice for spark-ignited internal combustion engines. If spilled or released from a vehicle, it presents no threat to soil, surface water, or groundwater. Propane is produced as a by-product of natural gas processing and crude oil refining. It accounts for about 2% of the energy used in the United States. Of that, less than 3% is used for transportation. Its main uses include home and water heating, cooking and refrigerating food, clothes drying, and powering farm and industrial equipment. The chemical industry also uses propane as a raw material for making plastics and other compounds.
