In pharmaceutical production, Hexane is a commonly used solvent and reaction medium, as well as an agent for oil and grease extraction. This colourless liquid has a slight petrol odour and is highly volatile light hydrocarbon, readily forming highly flammable vapour-air mixtures. When the tank is emptied, no residues may remain inside. Reliable level measurement and overfill protection is an absolute necessity for safe storage and handling.
