Methanol is an important organic chemical raw materials, and it is widely used in many industry. It can produce formaldehyde, synthetic rubber, methyl chloride,acetic acid and a series of organic chemical products. It is also used for the synthesis of methanol protein.
Methanol consumption structure in our country is similar to foreign countries, and the largest the consumption field is formaldehyde production. The proportion of consumption is about 40%. The second is MTBE and acetic acid, the proportion is 6% and 7% respectively. However with the needing of protecting the environment and the world oil resources become increasingly scarce, the development of methanol fuel consumption become fast in recent year. It becomes one of the majority power of methanol demand. In addition,along with the two ether entered the civil gas market officially, the demand for methanol is expansion quickly. Now the methanol and its downstream products is most likely to become the leading alternative products for the the beginning of the post petroleum Era.
Most suitable storage container to methanol is stainless steel containers and plastic tank. The plastic tank use pure polyethylene as raw material and it uses a special rotational molding process to molding the whole. The plastic tan has many advantages, such as no welding, no leakage, non-toxic, light weight, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, integrated and long life. Certainly, it also could store most inorganic acid, alkali, salt solution and most organic solvents, while can partly replace titanium, stainless steel, high nickel alloy steel and other materials. The production is meet the storage and transportation of dangerous goods regulations and a ideal storage container for methanol and reaction chemical corrosion, clean solution. Methanol in line with national health standards,can replace the stainless steel container to shipment.
