Petroleum Refining

Perhaps no other aspect of petroleum-related production entails the diversity of measurement applications as that found in petroleum refining. Oil companies continue to innovate to meet the demands for "boutique" fuels while maximizing output.

High temperatures and pressures characterize the operating environment for refining process equipment, and the need for robust, reliable solutions extends to the equipment used to measure it's products. FMC Technologies is recognized for accurate and versatile measurement solutions that span the measurement needs of the oil refinery. Whether handling heavier fractions, lighter liquid elements, automotive- or aviation-grade fuels, waxes or lubricants, the right selection of products can be found in the FMC Technologies family of solutions. Flowmeters from FMC Technologies exist in virtually every refining application where accurate measurement is required.

Large refineries may have dozens of hydrocarbon blending streams for the complex processes that produce today's refined products; such process stream and application variables require accurate measurement solutions under a broad range of scenarios. FMC Technologies combines a deep understanding of measurement principles, applications know-how and product portfolio diversity necessary to meet complete measurement needs in petroleum blending, including newer requirements involving renewable fuels such as ethanol.
