The main petrochemical products produced at oil refineries are: diesel, gasoline, fuel oil, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), jet fuel and kerosene.
The products are stored in large containers prior to sorting and delivery to final destination, which may be via pipe networks or tankers. Whilst in storage the products are susceptible to collecting debris such as rust and small particles which can cause problems upstream of the distribution points and damage end users' equipment as well as spoiling the final product. Therefore, the products are filtered and coalesced prior to delivery to remove contaminants and water.
Porvair Filtration Group has a comprehensive range of filtration products and equipment that are used in all stages of production throughout the petrochemical industry, from primaries, intermediate and derivative products through to end-use products.
This highly diverse and challenging market sector requires the use of tailored solutions using both metallic and polymeric media, and we can supply everything from a single filter element right up to complete vessel and skid fabrications.
Our engineered solutions improve both plant economics and efficiencies, increasing campaign lengths and reducing operating costs, factors critical to the success of modern plant operation.
