Ecopetrol Reficar's output
|PRODUCT||ProTek Composite Wear Pads|
Ecopetrol’s Reficar, one of Colombia’s largest refineries, faces serious temperature and climate issues—poised at the edge of jungle terrain and bordering coastal waters, it’s a perfect storm of corrosion conditions. The heat, humidity, and extreme marine conditions converged to create long-running corrosion-related problems for this facility, which was built in 1950. Ecopetrol planned to simultaneously complete their expansion project while performing improvements on existing facilities.
Ecopetrol was ready to make a significant investment in infrastructure in order to increase output and streamline operations.
APP looked beyond the plant’s physical needs for expansion, providing Spanish-language installation support that would ensure the ProTek Wear Pad’s lasting success.
