Petrol Chemical Industry

Petrochemicals are chemical products derived from petroleum while certain chemical compounds made from petroleum are also obtained from other fossil fuels such as natural gas or coal and even renewable sources such as corn or sugar cane. The petrochemical industry represents a significant contribution to the world economy, producing a wide variety of products that includes but not limited to ethylene, vinyl chloride, benzene, toluene, styrene monomer, propylene, and xylene, which are the raw materials for many plastics.

Industry and megatrends

Petro chemical process facilities rely intensively on automation using sophisticated instrumentation, computers and programmable logic controllers to run their plants. In an effort to improve energy efficiency and reduce pollution, various equipment are interconnected and the operations can be very complicated. Equipment failures or operator errors can lead to sudden and unexpected changes in the plant operation. Due to the intensive chemical involvement, equipment performance has high expectations and requirements.

Dura-Metal supported the industry with their specialised welding and thermal spray technologies on its machining components to enhance the component parts’ profiles while as the same time, maintaining their performance in the production conditions. Our product range includes welding and coating equipment and consumables as well as product development on stainless steels, high-strength low-alloy and non-ferrous materials (copper, nickel, aluminum, titanium). In addition, Dura-Metal plays a vital role in joint development of parts for the various Lumber industries’ applications.
