AMETEK, Inc. ametekpi.comFind the right solution for your ethylene plant Ethylene is the most produced organic compound globally and is an important building block for the petrochemical and chemical industry with over 150 million tons of ethylene produced yearly. The main commercial production of ethylene is by thermo/steam cracking of different hydrocarbon feed stocks, which is typically divided into a few main steps: cracking, quenching, compression and drying, and separation.

Ethylene plants can use a wide range of hydrocarbon feed stocks. One of the most common types is naphtha, a mixture of hydrocarbons that has a boiling range of 30°C to 200°C (86°F to 392°F). In some regions, including the United States and the Middle East, ethane and propane are the most commonly used feed stocks in ethylene production. The rapidly growing production of shale gas has resulted in construction on many new and expanded ethylene plants globally. Most of the ethylene produced is used in the production of polyethylene and ethylene oxide which is a feed stock for many more complex hydrocarbons and polymers. Process analytics ensures process control via online monitoring of the various process streams in olefin production.

Process control through compositional analysis by online analyzers results in maximized yields and ensures product quality.
