Crude oil has to be cleaned, separated, and converted (refined) until the final products suitable for sale are made. These include gas, diesel, heating oil, lubricants, propane, and butane.
These processes often involve complex distillation processes that require precision and reliability. LEWA supports refineries worldwide in various processes, which means that not only is it able to draw on a wealth of expertise, but also on a network of consultants and technicians, who support you on site when installing and operating your distillation plant.
Our tried-and-tested pumps are used in various metering systems, which we build to meet your requirements and commission on your site.
Whether extracting crude oil or refining it further – LEWA products and systems offer solutions for all processes involved in the processing and refining of crude oil.
The diagram shows all the important refining processes. LEWA delivers fully customized plants and systems for almost all of them. Just ask our experts for more information!
