A Business Full of Energy: Fluid Management for China's Petrochecial–Boom
Versatile Fluid Management Systems
Over the years, Endress+Hauser China has become a specialist in automated solutions for managing fluids. “China’s economy is constantly growing. We already have to import around half of our oil and gas needs,” explains Lu Jianlin, Director of Regional Sales. “This percentage will continue to grow and so will consumption. Our solutions help the industry to build the necessary infrastructure.”
At the heart of Endress+Hauser’s systems are Coriolis flowmeters that precisely measure the mass flow. A batch controller manages the filling process. The software was developed by Endress+Hauser engineers. The system components also include displays, card readers, valves, pumps and other measurement technology such as pressure devices and level switches that prevent overfilling.
Modular Design for Extra Flexibility in Petrochemicals
“The modular design gives us the flexibility to adapt our solutions to the customers’ requirements and makes it easy to expand the systems,” emphasizes Song Zhaoming. The truck loading terminal at the refinery in Panjin, which originally had 12 loading bays, now has 40.
The train loading capacity was expanded from 20 to currently 56 loading arms. “That shows how satisfied we are with Endress+Hauser’s system,” says Liu Ying, Manager of the refinery branch of Huajin Tongda Chemical Company.
