What is Petrochemical Industry?
A Petrochemical Industry is an industry that produces products such as natural gas, refinery products, rubber, plastic and fiber raw materials. The petrochemical sector is vital to India’s economy and progress. However, as energy consumption has increased, petrochemical production has increased as well, resulting in complicated waste during onshore and offshore oil exploration, refining, and production. Organic and inorganic hazardous pollutants are mostly produced by petrochemical industries. Organic pollutants, which are predominantly composed of complex polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), are mutagenic, carcinogenic, persistent in the environment, and have negative consequences for the environment and human health. Extreme temperatures and pressures are used in the petrochemical industry to generate various materials, which necessitates specialised engineering. The valves that control material fluids are critical to the operation of petrochemical plants.
Why valves are used in petrochemical industry?
It is vital to protect employees from any hazards that come from working with petrochemicals, both within and outside the petrochemical plant. In terms of valves, preventing leakage is critical. Furthermore, the security of automatic shut off valves can avoid numerous chemical disasters on petrochemical facilities. However, these explosions are dangerous not just to the individuals within the plant, but also to the residents in the surrounding communities
