The refining industry uses an industrial process where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful products such as petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, and liquefied petroleum gas.
Most of the valves used in oil refining equipment are pipeline valves, mainly including gate valves, globe valves, check valves, safety valves, ball valves, butterfly valves, and so on. Among them, gate valves account for about 80% of the total number of valves and 3% to 5% of the total equipment investment. Valves used in refining applications (such as check valves) must be carefully designed to operate reliably under various extreme environmental conditions.
We offer the key flow control products and services to keep our valued refinery customers up and producing. During the past several years, we have helped many customers to improve their process reliability, productivity, safety, and sustainability with application-appropriate valve solutions.
