    Organic process medium: Pentane plays an important role for ORC plants

    Organic process medium: Pentane plays an important role for ORC plants

    Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) plants have become important pillars of the energy transition. They offer the opportunity to generate electricity and heat even if the temperature of the available heat source is too low for the operation of a turbine driven by steam. Organic process media are the solution. Read here to find out what they are and what quality is convincing.

    Sustainable energy: The ORC process for electricity and heat production

    Sustainable energy: The ORC process for electricity and heat production

    In the course of the energy turnaround, geothermal energy generation is becoming an increasingly important topic alongside electricity generation from solar, wind and hydro power. Generating sustainable electricity is more topical and urgent than ever. Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) plants play an important role, because they open up ways of generating electricity and heat that were not possible in the past. Find out here what advantages and future opportunities the process offers.

    Pentane Study: Tenary blends offer benefits to PU and PIR industry

    Pentane Study: Tenary blends offer benefits to PU and PIR industry

    Pentane blowing agents are widely used in the insulation industry. Since the performance and properties of Polyurethane (PU) and Polyisocyanurate (PIR) foams can vary considerably - depending on the isomer used - Haltermann Carless has conducted a study to take a closer look at the behaviour of blends consisting of the three isomers n-Pentane, iso-Pentane and Cyclopentane. The results of these tenary blends look promising and might offer additional benefits to the insulation industry.

    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

    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.
