Design of In line Blender

Blending Today

Many refineries and oil terminals are still blending components using a batch blending by sequential pumping to a tank. This means, pumping sequentially “n” components from blend component tanks to a final product tank.

Blending in this way produces large property giveaway, immobilizes storage tank and inventory, could result in off-spec non sellable product , it is time consuming and the blend can take more than one day, beside other side effects.

Why In-Line Blending?

There are many advantages in using an inline blender vs. sequential pumping components to a blend tank; for example:

  1. With an inline blender you can reduce the blending time by at least 50%, which and frees tanks for other purposes and requires less inventory on hand;
  2. Much smaller octane and vapor pressure property giveaway;
  3. No offspecs or re-blends;
  4. Minimize demurrage charges.
  5. Fewer/less testing of blend samples (saving $);
