Pumpen petrochemischer Stoffe für die Energieerzeugung spielen eine wichtige Rolle in der modernen Energieinfrastruktur.

Petrochemische Pumpen müssen in der Lage sein, verschiedene Arten von Chemikalien zuverlässig und sicher zu fördern. Sie müssen verschiedenen Betriebsbedingungen standhalten und unter extremen Temperaturen und Drücken arbeiten können.

Petrochemical pumps


Choosing the right pump is crucial for the safety and reliability of energy generation. Modern pumps are designed to be used in a wide range of applications. This also includes the provision of raw materials for petrochemicals and energy generation. They can also be used to dispose of these materials. As a result, environmental impact can be minimized. Modern pumps are robust, reliable and efficient and can be used particularly in safe environments. By using cutting-edge technologies, they can be easily integrated into petrochemical and energy generation plants. They offer a cost-effective way to optimize energy production. As a result, costs can be reduced and performance improved. There is a solution for all of these requirements. The oscillating ring pump from pumpsystems combines all these components and much more.

What are the options for generating energy?

The development of sustainable and renewable energy carrier has become increasingly important in the past. However, for various reasons petrochemicals, especially with regard to energy generation, it is impossible to imagine our everyday lives without it.

Through a combination of sustainable and renewable energy sources on the one hand and petrochemicals on the other hand, sustainable and safe energy generation as well as a Reducing emissions be guaranteed.

Particularly in view of the current energy crisis and steady population growth, electricity generation is massively threatened.

The most energy requirement Germany-wide is covered by renewable energy sources, natural gas, lignite and nuclear energy.

Nuclear energy is the only energy source that ensures a constant supply of energy, as it is available around the clock. However, it is also the main source of radioactivity and harmful waste products. As a result, it is only used to a limited extent in Germany. Instead, environmental measures to reduce CO2 emissions such as renewable energy sources used. This includes solar energy, but wind and water are also used to generate electricity. These energy sources are more climate-friendly and environmentally friendly than fossil fuels, but also less reliable as they depend on the weather.

Greener is playing in the energy generation of the future hydrogen a key role. Because hydrogen is the most common element in the universe. Composed of an electron and a proton, it has 2.4 times as much energy as natural gas. Green hydrogen is a clean and CO2-free fuel medium that is more efficient and environmentally friendly than fossil fuels. Petrochemistry recognized the importance of this substance years ago and has been using it for decades. Hydrogen is used primarily in oil refining. But hydrogen is also used in the production of steel and methanol and during the production of ammonia for fertilizers.

When refining crude oil, hydrogen is used as a catalyst for chemical reactions. This causes harmful components to be removed from the oil. Hydrogen is also used to reduce oxygen compounds, improve fuel quality and desulfurize. Desulfurization is a process in which sulfur compounds are removed from fuels. As a result, the emissions drastically reduces harmful gases. This process can be carried out in various ways, for example by adsorption, oxidation or chemical reduction. Hydrogen is also used in refining to produce fuels from oil, such as diesel, gasoline and aviation fuel. It is also used in the production of synthetic fibers and plastics, in electrochemistry, in the processing of precious metals and in the production of detergents, fertilizers and dyes.

Nowadays, hydrogen is becoming increasingly important not only for petrochemicals, but also as an energy source. For this reason, more and more research projects are being carried out to find new ways to use hydrogen more efficiently. Some of these projects involve the production of hydrogen from renewable energy sources. Others are concerned with storing and transporting hydrogen. With these new technologies, the energy generation of the future will be even more efficient and climate neutrality will grow.

How does the petrochemical production process for green hydrogen work and what is the function of pumps?

The petrochemical manufacturing process Hydrogen starts with the injection of steam into a pipe. Within this pipe is a mixture of fossil fuels. The resulting hydrogen is now produced with the help of pumps brought to the desired pressure level. It is then passed through a cooler. This cools the hydrogen to a temperature which is suitable for further processing steps. The hydrogen produced in this way is finally processed for its final purpose. Pumps ensure that hydrogen is brought to the right pressure level at every stage of the manufacturing process. This now ensures that an optimal end result is achieved.

Shortly after, you run the hydrogen continue through a filter system. This filter system removes harmful contaminants. The plants then bring the hydrogen to a defined pressure level and prepare it for its final use. For the last step of petrochemical production, the hydrogen is then fed into the desired containers and plants. In the best case scenario, it will now be used there for final use.

Hydrogen production from renewable energy sources

The petrochemical production process is now complete and the hydrogen can be used for its intended application. By using the latest technologies from Hydrogen economy Is it possible to produce hydrogen safely and quickly. As a result, it can be used for a variety of purposes.

This process is currently at the level of basic research. This type of production is time-consuming, energy-intensive and expensive. At present, pure energy supply with hydrogen is still a long way off.

Due to the high costs and complexity of the process, it is not yet possible to create a pure green Hydrogen energy supply to enable on a broad basis. However, some companies are already working on developing technologies that provide such energy supply could enable. It is therefore still unclear whether and when a general hydrogen energy supply will be available.

It therefore remains to be seen how the costs and complexity of the process can be reduced in the foreseeable future. However, it is certain that developing green clean energy sources to our Climate target It will be essential - and we at pumpsystems will make our contribution to this.
