  Gas Detector Calibration: Crowcon Detection Instruments: Gas Facts
Most flammable gas detectors are calibrated 0-100% LEL methane or 0-100% LEL pentane and SECTION 4 describes the use of CORRECTION FACTORS for measuring other gases and vapours which are known to be present.
Pellistor sensors are about twice as sensitive to methane as to pentane and these two calibrations are therefore convenient to use.
Pentane and other flammable liquids, which readily vaporise can be used to produce dilute mixtures with air by using plastic (Tedlar) bags available from Crowcon.

  Lesson Learned: Discovery in Soot Testing
To sample for soot load, a pentane and toluene coagulated insolubles test (ASTM D893) was run on the sample and results indicated less than 1 percent solids in the sample.
To understand why the results of the pentane and toluene coagulated insolubles test did not coincide with TGA and membrane filtration tests, it is important to know how each test is performed and understand the underlying theories.
Upon speaking to the laboratory personnel, it was discovered that when the pentane insolubles test was run, the additives (dispersants) in the oil appeared to have kept the soot suspended in the sample.

For example, in Figure 1, pentane (a volatile liquid) was introduced into a fracture model composed of a sheet of flat glass glued on the edges to a sheet of obscure glass which had been roughened by sandblasting.
The bottom portion is submerged in a heated bath with the temperature exceeding the pentane boiling temperature by about 1.3 C. The brightest regions are where pentane saturates the aperture, the next brightest regions are where pentane is present as a thick film on the glass.
Small flows of pentane evaporate prior to reaching the "drifts", and the condensing pentane forms a condensation halo on the top, sides, and bottom of the warmed region.

 The Virtual FormGuide - AAP - O'Sullivan Cleared Over Pentane Charge
O'Sullivan was charged for failing to report a condition which may have affected the performance of a horse under his care after Pentane's surprise failure in the $1 million Kelt Capital Stakes at Hastings on October 7.
O'Sullivan's counsel, however, argued that the condition Pentane had was extremely common and was not regarded as likely to have affected his race performance.
Shaw said Pentane raced poorly at his next start, the Geelong Cup in Australia, after which further diagnostic work found "a low grade respiratory condition that may be a more logical contribution to the horse's form".

 The Virtual FormGuide - AAP - 'Lightweight' Pentane Backed Heavily
Bookmakers have a weathered a barrage of support for New Zealand stayer Pentane and fear it may get worse after he was pitch-forked in to the Melbourne Cup with just 52kg.
The winner of the Auckland Cup in March, Pentane has been backed from $161 and is as short as $15 with some betting agencies.
Gary Davies at TAB Sportsbet agreed that Pentane was easily the best backed horse for the Melbourne Cup and has shortened him from $26 to $17 after bets up to $5000 each-way.

And O'Sullivan made sure Pentane was back to square one by putting the gelding through his paces before giving the all-clear for Pentane to leave his Matamata stables for Melbourne.

 Green Statement
These pentane isomers all have different physical properties and it is important to note that the blowing agent used by ASI is a highly efficient blend of the aforementioned pentane isomers developed, with the new generation of polyols, to meet the needs of the market from a performance standpoint.
Other pentane considerations include workplace safety as related to precautions in mitigating flammability risks of HC blowing agents during the production process, which is not related to end user application.
The pentane blowing agent, as used by ASI, is considered a VOC reportable per EPA requirements on pollution equipment control during manufacturing.

Since pentane isomers each have different physical properties it is important to note the characteristics of different PIR brands may vary.
The most common pentane blowing agents used in the manufacture of polyisocyanurate rigid foam are combinations of one or more N-pentane, Iso-pentane, and C-pentane.
For this reason, the EPA lists pentane, as a suitable replacement for hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFC’s) which are considered harmful to the stratosphere.

 Pentane and Propane Metathesis
Crossed-molecular-beam scattering is at the forefront of experimental means of investigating the fundamental reactive encounters in metathesis reactions, in which a single atom is transferred from a stable molecule to an atom or radical.
Berkeley Lab researchers are exploiting a unique combination of intense, tunable VUV synchrotron radiation with the crossed-beam technique on Beamline 9.0.2 at the ALS to yield important new insights into the dynamics of hydrogen transfer (abstraction) when chlorine reacts with the saturated hydrocarbons pentane and propane.
The insights from the dramatic differences observed in the dynamics of pentane as compared to propane reactions will help build the foundation for developing accurate computer models of practical combustion systems.
