About Isobutane. Isobutane is the simplest alkane with a tertiary carbon, characterized as a colorless gas with a faint petroleum-like odor. Often shipped as a liquefied gas under vapor pressure, it stands as an essential component in various applications. Primarily recognized for its role as a refrigerant, isobutane serves as a sustainable alternative to chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) due to its reduced environmental impact. Its low boiling point and superior cooling properties make it indispensable in domestic refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioning systems. Additionally, it plays a pivotal role in the energy sector, serving as a feedstock for alkylate production, a premium gasoline component renowned for its high-octane rating and environmental benefits.

Isobutane's versatility extends to its function in aerosol propellants, benefiting from its low flammability and high vapor pressure, ensuring efficient product delivery. Furthermore, its intrinsic ability to dissolve a diverse array of substances positions it as a valuable solvent in both petrochemical and pharmaceutical extraction processes. As regulatory norms lean towards eco-friendly alternatives, the importance of isobutane is anticipated to escalate, emphasizing its critical role across various industrial landscapes.

Isobutane Handling. Isobutane must be stored under pressure in cylinders in cool, well-ventilated dry area of non-combustible construction. These containers must be kept away from sources of heat or ignition, from oxidizers, such as oxygen or chlorine, and must be protected against physical damage.

Isobutane Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Isobutane are listed below.

  • n-Butane (isomerization),
  • Butanes (fractionation)

Isobutane Uses. The uses and applications of Isobutane may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Isobutane are technical grade (N1.5 - 95 mol% concentration of Isobutane); pure grade (N2.0 - 99 mol% concentration of Isobutane; and instrument grade (N2.5 - 99.5 mol% concentration of Isobutane).
