    Interview: Speyer site is heart of Cyclopentane production

    Interview: Speyer site is heart of Cyclopentane production

    Cyclopentane is an indispensable raw material for insulation materials in the construction industry. As a blowing agent in Polyurethane insulation boards, it is responsible for the insulation performance and contributes directly to the saving of heating costs and to the reduction of CO2 emissions. Of all the Pentanes, Cyclopentane has a particularly high insulating performance.

    Hydrogenation plant for Pentane production: Supply security for companies

    The demand for Pentanes is high. The reason for this is that this raw material is particularly important in insulation materials for construction and refrigeration appliances. As a foaming agent in Polyurethane (PU) and Polystyrene (EPS, XPS) systems, it ensures excellent insulation performance. Efficient insulation leads to cost savings and contributes to CO2 reduction. The demand for high-quality Pentanes is therefore high - we at Haltermann Carless are familiar with the market requirements and can offer you tangible solutions. Read more about our new hydrogenation plant and the benefits in the following article.

    Cyclopentane for more effective insulation of refrigerators

    Cyclopentane for more effective insulation of refrigerators

    Household appliances are usually power guzzlers. When it comes to their energy consumption, refrigerators hold a special position - after all, they operate 24/7 and are never switched off. The demand for energy-efficient appliances is consequently growing strongly. So is the demand from refrigerator manufacturers for high-quality insulation. Find out which factors are crucial for high insulation performance in refrigerators and how Haltermann Carless contributes to this.

    Important blowing agents for insulation materials: Pentanes and their quality characteristics

    Important blowing agents for insulation materials: Pentanes and their quality characteristics

    Pentanes are indispensable in high-performance insulation materials. This important base material acts as a blowing agent in insulations and ensures that Polyurethane systems foam up and can thus develop their full performance. But what characterises this valuable material? What quality features should you look for and what supplier performance should you expect? The following article provides an overview.

    Interview with Speyer plant manager: Site with a promising future

    Interview with Speyer plant manager: Site with a promising future

    Haltermann Carless' production site in Speyer has a long history and a promising future. This is due to its strategically favourable location in the heart of Europe, a strong product portfolio, permanent investments in modern technologies and committed employees. The manufacturing plant, which has been in operation since July 1965, has constantly advanced and embraced future trends. At the time of its foundation, modern technologies such as valve bottoms or air-cooled condensation were used and a biological wastewater treatment plant was put into operation. Now the production site is again taking important steps towards the future: for more sustainability and clear customer added value.

    Cyclopentane – to keep things fresh and cold for longer!

    Cyclopentane – to keep things fresh and cold for longer!

    Fresh, chilled or frozen products have become an indispensable part of our lives. Particularly sensitive goods such as fish or vegetables need an uninterrupted cooling chain to guarantee the quality of the products throughout the entire processing route. It is not surprising that the requirements for the energy efficiency of refrigeration appliances are particularly high, as energy consumption represents a significant contribution to costs. Insulating materials for refrigeration appliances, foamed with Cyclopentane, therefore make a valuable, positive contribution to this balance.

    How Pentanes revolutionise thermal insulation

    How Pentanes revolutionise thermal insulation

    Energy efficiency and thermal insulation have become an integral part of our everyday thoughts and decisions. Whether we are re-insulating a building, insulating pipes or buying refrigerators, we are considering savings on our energy costs and thus reducing CO2 emissions. Manufacturers of insulation for the building or refrigerator industry have recognised their responsibility and are doing their part to protect the climate. However, high-quality raw materials - such as Pentanes, without which good insulation is not possible at all - are crucial for optimal insulation performance.

    70th Anniversary of Styropor® – Haltermann Carless congratulates BASF

    70th Anniversary of Styropor® – Haltermann Carless congratulates BASF

    An anniversary like this is not celebrated every year. While many plastics influence our lives on a daily basis, only very few manage to become truly iconic. Polystyrene in its foamed form, Styropor®, has accomplished this. 70 years ago, the first patent on foamed Polystyrene was granted. The brand name Styropor® became immortal and Styropor® became a synonym for a whole class of products. Haltermann Carless would like to congratulate BASF on this very special anniversary!
