The chemical and petrochemical industries are a bedrock of modern life.
A wide range of industrial processes would not be possible without the production of various chemicals. Fertilizer companies need urea and ammonia. The latter is also used in the manufacturing of synthetic fabrics and dyes, as well as chemical recycling. In addition to ammonia, fiber optics fabrication requires chlorinated gas and other chemical vapors. These are just a few examples of the important role that the chemical industry plays in modern life.
Meanwhile, the petrochemical industry supplies the various fuels that power the transportation sector, and also produces a myriad of other essential raw materials: plastics, medicines, lubricants, synthetic rubbers, and synthetic fibers – to name just a few.
Accurate pressure, temperature, level, and flow measurements are critical at every step of every process in the chemical and petrochemical industries. Plant safety, reliability, and profitability all depend on efficient, consistently monitored processes.
