Refineries and polymer industries
REFINING AND POLYMER PROCESSING
Refineries are at the heart of the fossil fuel and polymer industries since they separate crude oil and natural gases into lighter fractions by distillation processes. The lighter fractions then undergo a further transformation, via many different processes in various petrochemical industries, to produce valuable polymers for many end uses.
Key challenges in the refining industry include heavy fouling of medias, high security, and safety demands, and tough chemical and mechanical environments due to high pressures, high temperatures, corrosive raw materials, etc. As consequence, the refining and petrochemical industries require robust process solutions that can handle those harsh conditions and also meet the European standards for quality and regulatory aspects, at the lowest possible cost.
Thurne cooperates with leading manufacturers worldwide, mainly coming from the US and Europe. Our product scope comprises pressure vessels, distillation columns, reactors, heat recovery units, condensers and re-boilers, column internals, piping, and rupture discs – all available in high-grade materials.
