Chemical & Petrochemical

The chemical and petrochemical industries are highly specialized, with plants producing intermediate products from raw materials that, in turn, are used by other plants as inputs in their production of more advanced products. Each chemical company needs to carefully consider its positioning in a highly competitive marketplace. The key factors in all areas of the chemical industry are production reliability, productivity and performance. Hardy can help you respond to these daily challenges.  

Chemical & Petrochemical Manufacturing

Our process weighing solutions support the 4 major segments of the chemical industry:

  • Base or Commodity Chemicals (polymers, petrochemicals, bulk and intermediates, other derivatives and basic industrials and fertilizers
  • Specialty or Fine Chemicals (electronic chemicals, industrial gases, adhesives/sealants, coatings, industrial/institutional cleaning chemicals and catalysts)
  • Organic Chemicals (dyes, pigments and inks)
  • Life Science Chemicals (differentiated chemical and biological substances, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, animal health products, vitamins, and pesticides)

Your Industry Trends & Manufacturing Challenges

We understand many of your business/manufacturing needs. We often find chemical companies focused on 4 key issues: a) meeting demanding throughput; b) hitting cost targets; c) meeting quality specifications of intermediate materials and final products; d) ensuring safe handling of potentially flammable or explosive materials. We also find that chemical plants often rely on both continuous and batch production processes, each posing different challenges.

Hardy’s solutions help you respond to these trends and challenges, for example by allowing you to: 

  • Improving throughput and yield
  • Meet cost, quality, flexibility, and regulatory challenges - from raw material through final shipment.
  • Maintain a safe environment in both normal and hazardous environments - from raw material through final shipment.
