Ability to meet any challenge

The manufacture of chemical products from natural gas and naphtha in refineries places high demands on the process instrumentation. In different process steps, such as cracking, condensation or distillation, the respective intermediate or finished products are manufactured under defined pressure and temperature conditions. The high precision and quality of WIKA's time-proven products ensures maximum plant availability here. Since the handling of the various gas mixtures and the highly flammable naphtha is not without danger, for example, our ATEX tested and certified measuring instruments make a contribution to the required safety.

Maximum safety

Since the primary and secondary products obtained are very diverse, different materials are needed for the wetted parts. In atmospheres containing H2S, which can pose a possible health and safety risk for residents, personnel or the environment should corrosion damage the plant, the fulfilment of the NACE / ISO 15156 requirements is also a 'must' for the instrumentation.

WIKA - Your strong partner

Particularly in applications with aggressive media, in combination with high media temperatures, individual solutions with diaphragm seal assemblies or thermowells are essential. There is an equally large variety with the requirements of level monitoring in tank farms. For all application examples mentioned, WIKA offers an unrivalled programme of pressure, temperature and level measuring instruments, as well as calibration instruments and services.

Application examples

  • Pipelines
  • Distillation columns
  • Steam drums
  • Extraction vessels
  • Condensate separators
  • Tank farms
