Chemical / Petrochemical Industry

Refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants produce the basic materials and fuels that keep industrial society running

Refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants produce the basic materials and fuels that keep
industrial society running. Very complex systems have been developed to implement the
corresponding production processes and to enable safe use of the materials, which are usually
sensitive. Process assurance plays a crucial role in this process, because the failure of any
of the following components can, under some circumstances, cause production losses costing
millions:

  • Pump
  • Blower
  • Compressor
  • Mixer
  • Separator
  • Centrifuge
  • Turbine


The stringent requirements for equipment in potentially explosive areas are typical for these
industries. That is why PRUFTECHNIK takes these requirements into account in the development
of its measurement systems and sensors; each new product being also offered in an
explosion-proof version.
