Refinery Process Treatment

refinery process treatment

Treatment concepts for refinery applications.

Crude oil refineries produce a variety of products, including feedstocks for cracking processes and for the petrochemical industry. The crude oil is converted into useful products such as fuels, process oils, solvents, lubricants, waxes, bitumen, coke and other special products. To manufacture these products, the raw materials are processed in different downstream units.

Crude oil impurities like metals and salts could lead to operational problems of the refining equipment. Deposits and corrosion as well as undesired emulsion, foam and toxic gases impact the operation and the occupational safety in refineries. Kurita provides tailored treatment concepts to increase the operational and the occupational safety. Our product lines and technologies are based on decades of experience in refinery process treatment and they contribute to reducing your total operating costs.
