Alkylation units are one of the conversion processes used in petroleum refineries. They are used to convert low-molecular-weight alkenes and isobutene into a high quality, clean burning gasoline component know as alkylate. The hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids that are used in the process are highly corrosive liquids, and thus, alkylation units require materials that can withstand these intense environments.
At Edgen Murray, we leverage our global vendor network and source a complete range of carbon steel and alloy products refineries need for alkylation units. Our vast experience in Downstream project management gives us the knowledge to oversee and streamline projects during the projects' lifecycle. Furthermore, our QA department uses their sound knowledge of industry codes and standards to identify non-conforming quality and manufacturing issues before they have a chance to impact the project.
