How to optimize refinery operation

All major processes in refineries are based on the heating and partial evaporation of hydrocarbons

New environmental standards have brought about challenging requirements for large capital expenditures and increased hydrogen usage for low sulfur fuels This set of new regulations requires plants to reduce air pollution emissions (NOx), leading to costly equipment retrofits and upgrades. This means that you must be aware of safety, emissions and cost reduction issues such as improving unit and refinery reliability, refinery energy conservation and product loss reduction.

Obtaining efficiency, reliability and safety

Heat, pressure and chemical reactions transform crude oil into hundreds of refined products. You need measurement devices and automation solutions that allow you to control and operate complex refinery processes. In addition to answering environmental concerns, you must also address the issue of resource conservation.
