Refineries and petrochemistry without interruptions

Refineries

Refining safely with a refined solution

Refineries

A crude oil refinery is an industrial operation which converts crude oil by means of cleaning and distillation into fractions with a defined boiling point. There is further refinement such as extraction or chemical cleansing processes. The result is higher-value products such as diesel, petrol, heating oil or kerosene. Interruption to operations reduces delivery quantities. ISOMETER®s or RCMS residual current systems should therefore be used for monitoring across all process stages.

Petrochemicals

Chemical processing without interruption

Petrochemicals

Petrochemicals is the name given to the production of chemical products from natural gas and suitable fractions of crude oil. In order to guarantee interruption-free operation, the use of ISOMETER®s or RCMS residual current systems for monitoring quickly pays off.
