  • Process:
    A U.S. petroleum refiner produces several grades of gasoline by blending various components into a tank which feeds directly into a customer’s pipeline. The customer operates one of the largest independent petroleum products pipeline systems in the U.S. Planned modifications to the process include blending directly into the pipeline, allowing the refiner to eliminate the tank and the current custody transfer instrumentation (a volumetric meter and a densitometer).
