Petrochemical industrial process plants are designed to manufacture petrochemicals usually on a very large scale. The process normally involves the biological transformation of
a petrochemical(s) from one state to another where the finished product can be sold as a recognised product.
Harsh Operating Environments
Steel contained in petrochemical plants face harsh working conditions where exposure to temperature variation, varying humidity and affects from both acid and alkalis which cause corrosion, are common place. In such harsh working conditions, the quality and properties on the steel applied is critical to the ongoing success of any chemical plant installation.
