Meet WIKA USA’s Chemical and Petrochemical Industry Expert

Alina Green

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.


That’s where WIKA’s industry experts, like Alina Green, come in. Alina is WIKA USA’s Chemical Market Segment Specialist, and spends her days helping our partners optimize their processes and implement strategies to achieve goals. Her expertise lies in areas such as process control, instrumentation, and chemical engineering. Alina holds a Chemical Engineering degree from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, and is an active member of professional organizations such as the Society of Petroleum Engineers International.

Bruce Peters, WIKA USA’s Key Accounts Manager, says “Alina has a unique set of talents that allows her to see the macro economics with respect to a market but also the ability to pinpoint applications on a micro level that are specific to our core customers. Her chemical engineering background really shows through when discussing the realities of chemical manufacturing performance and what is required to control the reaction through temperature, flow, or pressure measurement and the pitfalls of not achieving optimal efficiency in the process.”
