Gases (petroleum), benzene unit hydrotreater depentanizer overheads; Refinery gas

A complex combination produced by treating the feed from the benzene unit with hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst followed by depentanizing. It consists primarily of hydrogen, ethane and propane with various small amounts of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C1 through C6. It may contain trace amounts of benzene. EC / List no: 271-623-5 CAS no: 68602-82-4
