Pumps and Metering Packages for the Petrochemical Industry

LEWA has been supplying durable pumps and metering systems for the petrochemical industry for over 50 years. Our particular focus has been on chemical metering for hydrocracking and steam cracking processes.

We deliver high-quality, custom-built systems for such applications all over the world. And you get this complete service from a single source: from consultation through to commissioning.

Petrochemicals

Catalytic processes with LEWA pumps

Petrochemicals generate starting products for the manufacture of plastics, pharmaceuticals, colorants, detergents, and other products. The most important operations are the various splitting or cracking processes (e.g. steam cracking, hydrocracking). These processes convert long-chained hydrocarbons (e.g., naphtha) into short-chained ones.

LEWA supports your production plants with effective additive metering, as well as with the conveying and treatment of washing water and sour water.

LEWA offers you specialized solutions for the metering and conveyance of the required chemicals and products. We design pumps and systems to suit your requirements and offer you all-round support for processes such as hydrocracking.
