Fuel Distillation Process
The diagram visualises the distillation process. Crude oil is made up of a mixture of hydrocarbons, and the distillation process aims to separate this crude oil into broad categories of its component hydrocarbons, or “fractions.”
Crude oil is first heated and then put into a distillation column, also known as a still, where different products boil off and are recovered at different temperatures.
Lighter products, such as butane and other liquid petroleum gases (LPG), gasoline blending components, and naphtha, are recovered at the lowest temperatures. Mid-range products include jet fuel, kerosene, and distillates such as home heating oil and diesel fuel. The heaviest products such as residual fuel oil are recovered at temperatures sometimes over 537,778°C.
The simplest refineries stop at this point. Most refineries in the throughout the word reprocess the heavier fractions into lighter products to maximize the output of the most desirable products using more sophisticated refining equipment such as catalytic crackers, reformers, and cokers.
Above Ground Storage Tank
Constructed in hardwearing carbon steel for the fuel and construction industries. Submerged arc welding, performed under a blanket of flux, ensures strong, clean welds with deep penetration and no spatter. Welds produced are sound, uniform, and corrosion resistant – perfect for long-term service in the field.
Maintenance is virtually zero. The exterior is finished with a tough shield of hea-reflective paint. The tanks are single-walled cylinders. The interiors can be coated or painted.
The tanks are supplied in different sizes ranging from 4000 – 100 000 litres in capacity. All the above ground tanks we use comply with SANS 10131 standards.
Automatic Tank Gauge System (ATG)
Every day, you spend valuable time checking inventory levels for ordering fuel or verifying correct delivery amounts. If you are manually dipping your tanks, you are not getting the full story. Every day, you spend valuable time checking inventory levels for ordering fuel or verifying correct delivery amounts. If you are manually dipping your tanks, you are not getting the full story.
Do not lose inventory, productivity, or customer loyalty by relying on incorrect manual monitoring. The automatic tank gauge system is an easy to navigate solution that affordably streamlines your wetstock management.
• Higher accuracy over manual reconciliation methods
• Eliminate dipstick reading errors
• Eliminate data transcription error
• Avoid manual reconciliation errors to more quickly understand variances caused by temperature, delivery shortages and leaks
