Information Regarding Pick Up
Can I pick up?
Below are commonly asked questions. All answers provided are merely recommendations. Please do further research and test yourself. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Can you use ethanol to extract oil from plants?
We have not tested ethanol to extract oil but many of our customers use it. When it comes to deciding between isopropyl alcohol and ethanol to extract many lean towards ethanol as it is grain based whereas isopropyl alcohol is petroleum based.
It is recommended to use 100% ethanol when the product is being consumed as it can have health effects.
Customers have used our 99% ethanol to extract oil from plants and have said that it does work. They do need to do an extra step in order to extract the 1% of denaturant in it. We are unsure of this process.
What is ethanol used for?
Ethanol is used for a variety of applications such as cleaning, disinfecting, used as an anti-septic and you will find it in a lot of window cleaners and hand sanitisers. There are a wide range of uses.
Is the ethanol suitable for heaters?
Yes, they are. Ethanol heaters are designed to use ethanol. You can use our ethanol no problems.
What smell does ethanol give off when burning?
Ethanol has a unique alcohol smell. When using it in a heater there is an odour but it usually burns off.
What is denatured ethanol?
Denatured ethanol means that it has an additive know as a bitrex in it which means it cannot be consumed. This is added into the ethanol by the government. Our 1% bitrex contains <%1 Denatoium Bensonate 5ppm MIBK <2%.
Is it safe to drink ethanol?
No, it is not safe to drink denatured alcohol. The strength and bitrex is poisonous.
Do you sell 100% ethanol?
Unfortunately, we do not sell 100% ethanol alcohol. You do need a license to sell and buy the 100% ethanol and we do not sell it. You need to source it from a laboratory that specialises in 100%. It can be quite costly.
