Petrochemical and refinery standards

MESA Specialty Gas & Equipment specializes in the manufacturing of a variety of petrochemical and refinery specialty gas standards in both the liquid and gas phases.  


MESA petrochemical specialty gas standards are instrumental in the evaluation and assessment of the physical, mechanical, rheological, thermal, and chemical properties of crude oils, lubricating grease, automobile and aviation gasoline, hydrocarbons, and other naturally occurring energy resources used for various industrial applications.  As a market leader in the supply of specialty gases, MESA Specialty Gas & Equipment works continually with our many petrochemical customers around the world, offering solutions to improve process performance, reduce environmental impact, and lower overall production costs.


Before manufacturing petrochemical or refinery specialty gas standards, requested components are first evaluated for potential phase problems using advanced computer modeling. Next, MESA evaluates component compatibility based on the requested specialty gas mixture.  Following this, each cylinder goes through proprietary cylinder passivation and conditioning processes based on the requested specialty gas standards. Then, the petrochemical specialty gas or liquid calibration standard is precisely blended to exacting specifications on highly sensitive gravimetric scales traceable to the US-NIST.  Finally, the petrochemical specialty gas or liquid calibration standard undergoes advanced hydrocarbon analysis using state-of-the-art analyzers to confirm agreement between the blended and analyzed values designed to meet your need within the timeline you establish.

Expanding market penetration for chemicals and plastics, combined with increasing requirements for transportation fuels and the worldwide depletion of easily accessible raw materials are creating tremendous operational pressures for even the most efficient petrochemical complex. Incorrect readings can lead to serious production losses, expensive system downtime, and potential non-compliance issues. MESA hydrocarbon blends are produced to meet exacting standards, with full traceability when required, to ensure your operation performs at peak levels with each and every calibration.Petrochemical and refinery standards
