Odourless kerosene is kerosene that has been put through a hydrotreating process in order to remove its odour. This makes it ideal for use in the home, for example in stoves or barbeques.
How Is the Kerosene Made Odourless?
Kerosene can be made odourless by a process called hydrotreating. This process involves the use of hydrogen and nickel-molybdenum catalysts to help turn the sulphur in the oil into hydrogen sulphide.
This procedure will generally remove enough odour in the kerosene to meet standards. If not, then an additional steam stripping will be used to get rid of the remaining scent.
What Is Odourless Kerosene Used for?
Odourless kerosene can be used for a wide variety of purposes, both in domestic and commercial settings. Uses include:
- Pharmaceutical industry
- Cosmetic companies
- Home barbeques
- Home stoves
- Construction and road maintenance equipment
- Cleaning agents
- The manufacture of substances and other materials
What’s The Difference Between Odourless Kerosene and Paraffin?
The process of making kerosene odourless is different from the process of producing paraffin. Paraffin is put through a refining process so then it doesn’t create as much soot as regular kerosene. Odourless kerosene on the other hand is only dearomatised and desulfurised in order to reduce the odour.
