Methanol Dealer In Orlando

Methanol, chemical formula CH3OH (sometimes abbreviated MeOH), acquired the name “wood alcohol” because it was once produced chiefly as a byproduct of the destructive distillation of wood. Modern methanol is produced in a catalytic industrial process directly from carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen.

Methanol is the simplest alcohol, and is a light, volatile, colorless, flammable liquid with a distinctive odor very similar to that of ethanol (drinking alcohol).  However, unlike ethanol, methanol is highly toxic and unfit for consumption.It is also used for producing biodiesel and for denitrification at water  reclamation facilities. Methanol is a traditional denaturant for ethanol, the product being known as “denatured alcohol” or “methylated spirit”. Methanol is also used as a solvent, and as an antifreeze  in pipelines and windshield washer fluid.
