SPEC OIL TDS MINING SOLVENT 2325



SPEC OIL MINING SOLVENT 2325

DESCRIPTION
Spec Oil Mining Solvent 2325 is a wide cut mixture of paraffin’s, cycloparaffins and aromatics that boils in between 220 ◦C and 250 ◦C.  As a consequence of its increased boiling range level Spec Oil Mining Solvent 2325 can be considered as a high flash, slow evaporating type of hydrocarbon solvent.

APPLICATION
Spec Oil Mining Solvent 2325 primary usage is as a solvent in metallurgical applications such as the liquid/liquid extraction of Copper, Uranium and other precious metals. It is also used as a fuel in the manufacture of explosives for the mining industry and in printing inks. Spec Oil Mining Solvent 2325 exceeds the Chamber of Mines flash point requirements for solvents, used underground.

STORAGE AND HANDELING
Provided proper storage and handling precautions are taken we would expect Spec Oil Mining Solvent 2325 to be technically stable for at least 12 months. For detailed advice on Storage and Handling please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet.
