In refineries crude oil is divided into useful components and prepared into marketable products such as naphtha, gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, light fuel oil or liquefied gases. After the primary processing a number of finishing processes is used to remove pollutants and improve the quality of intermediate products. In refineries hazardous substances are dealt with, such as hydrocarbon, hydrofluoric acid, acid water, various liquid gases, toluene, anilines and ethylene oxide. The fluids are transported in high-pressure circuits with high vapor pressures.
Under these conditions, only the most reliable components guarantee safe operating procedures. Schroeder Valves' products have been reliably protecting pumps in refineries around the globe for decades.
