The downstream oil and gas industry faces new challenges to cope with deteriorating operating margins. Refineries have to increasingly process changing crude oils and “opportunity” crude oils. This requires not only the deployment of new technologies, but also the management of problems related to the aging infrastructure.
Whether there are plans to put new refineries into operation, modernize or upgrade an existing site or whether revamps are planned: GEA’s high-performance decanter centrifuges and disk-stack centrifuges were specially designed to meet the requirements and circumstances in various process setups in refineries. They handle continuous liquid-liquid-solids separation in a wide range of applications and capacities.
