A Look at the Petrochemical & Oil Gas Industries

The demand for petrochemical products is very widespread, from fuels and plastics to adhesives, resins, textiles, solvents, detergents, paints, coatings, and other consumer goods.

Petrochemical products are derived from crude oil and natural gas. During the drilling process of oil and gas, the resulting drill cuttings pose an environmental hazard because they contain salts and heavy metals. In the oil and gas industry, reliable access to high-quality lime products is essential for operational efficiency and environmentally responsible practices. In addition to helping mitigate hazards from oil sands tailings, lime products also play an important role in oil and petrochemical processing through use in pH adjustment, impurity removal, and environmental remediation.

Lime Slaking Systems & Upgrades

Over time, equipment at petrochemical facilities may need updated or replaced due to normal wear and tear or for the integration of new technologies. Carmeuse supplies advanced equipment solutions for lime storage, handling, and slaking through our wholly owned subsidiary, Storage & Transfer Technologies (STT).

Our expert engineers can design the right solution to keep your production running smoothly, from new lime handling systems and slakers, to retrofits and upgrades for your existing equipment. For additional information related to our lime handling expertise, visit the STT website.
