Methanol (CH3OH) is a chemical compound of carbon (C), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O). It is water soluble, readily biodegradable and it is member of a group of organic chemicals called alcohols (methyl alcohol).
Methanol is mainly used in plastics, paints, cosmetics and chemical products. Is also a renewable energy resource used in the marine, automotive and electricity sectors.
CH3OH service comes with some challenges as corrosion, flammability, toxicity and high reactivity.
Vinco ball valves are designed to operate in methanol service with high levels of tightness, fire safe design incorporated and compatible materials to ensure chemical compatibility, safety and reliability.
