Pumps and metering systems for distilling crude oil in refineries

LEWA pumps and systems help you to optimize the performance of your distillation plant for refining crude oil and guarantee its availability.

For more than 60 years, customers across the world have been placing their trust in our products because of their precision, reliability, and maximum efficiency.

Distillation of crude oil with LEWA pumps, systems and plants

Crude oil has to be cleaned, separated, and converted (refined) until the final products suitable for sale are made. These include gas, diesel, heating oil, lubricants, propane, and butane.

These processes often involve complex distillation processes that require precision and reliability. LEWA supports refineries worldwide in various processes, which means that not only is it able to draw on a wealth of expertise, but also on a network of consultants and technicians, who support you on site when installing and operating your distillation plant.

Our tried-and-tested pumps are used in various metering systems, which we build to meet your requirements and commission on your site.
