Food Grade Hexane

Food Grade Hexane is a light distillate produced at various refineries from natural gas condensate by atmospheric distillation. Hexane has a higher percentage of strong solvability, solvent extractions and iso paraffin. FG Hexane is produced in the refineries from special cut Naphtha where the Hexane rich stream is extracted and purified to meet the required specification.
