Nelson Heptane 55 Gallon Drum
Heptane is the straight-chain alkane. When used as a test fuel component in anti-knock test engines, a 100% heptane fuel is the zero point of the octane rating scale (the 100 point is a 100% iso-octane).
Octane number equates to the anti-knock qualities of a comparison mixture of heptane and isooctane which is expressed as the percentage of isooctane in heptane and is listed on pumps for gasoline dispensed in the United States and internationally.
Heptane (and its many isomers) is widely applied in laboratories as a totally non-polar solvent. As a liquid, it is ideal for transport and storage. In the grease spot test, heptane is used to dissolve the oil spot to show the previous presence of organic compounds on a stained paper. This is done by shaking the stained paper in a heptane solution for about half a minute.
Packaged in a closed head DOT approved drum steel drum with removable threaded air cap vent 1" in diameter and another removable cap with threaded opening to install a 2" molasses gate (not included) for safe pouring. 55 gallons or 7040 fluid ounces.
