Gorman-Rupp Self-Priming T-Series Pumps Away Hydrocarbon Wastewater

June 12, 2021

Hydrocarbons are important in modern society as fuel, solvents and even as the building block of plastic.

They originated from crude oil and since crude oil consists of other organic compounds as well, they cannot be used effectively by modern industries.

Thus petroleum refining processes transform crude oil into useful products such as LPG, petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel, and fuel oils.

Similar to many industrial processes, this refining process produces by-products and undesired waste.
