Cannot find 'porspan' anywhere...should it be left in English?

My attempt so far: Porspan container in which to use saltpetre.

Suggestions much appreciated,

Many thanks

Sorry, as Smarttrans says, the brand name is probably Porexpan®, a registered trademark of a material primarily prepared with "expanded polystyrene".

The other porspan is a software company.

agree  Andrés Martínez: Sí, pero es porexpán, no "porspan". Poliestireno expandido = expanded polystyrene. www.porexpan.es. Sin duda es un recipiente de poliestireno expandido para verter el nitrógeno líquido (extraña receta).

agree  David Brown: I assume "nitro" means nitrogen and not nitroglycerine
