One of the Largest Petrochemical Plants Along the Gulf Coast Works with Tioga for Mission-Critical Chemical Processing Equipment Needs.
Channelview, TX – An increase of 550 million pounds of ethylene a year is just one of the many objectives in a huge petrochemical expansion project—and making that happen is just one of many services for the experts at Tioga.
The 3,900-acre petrochemical facility is undergoing a giant expansion to result in what will be a substantial boost in the production of ethylene units—an essential ingredient in clothing, bedding, packaging and automotive parts—as well as propylene, butadiene and benzene. In other words, it was a highly critical, no-room-for-missteps kind of system that requires a partner who knows what they're doing.
The project required timely delivery of specialty pipes that would require specific chemical composition; each grade made of certain percentages and composition of material outside of the industry ASTM standards. A global engineering, construction and services company in Houston was awarded the contract for the Channelview Complex expansion, selecting industry leader Tioga as its supplier of choice to help get the job done. Tioga, the largest stocking distributor of specialty pipe fittings and flanges, was awarded the ethanol plant expansion job over several other bidders.
By working closely with the mills throughout the process and utilizing a world-class inventory, competitive pricing and a specialized project management service, Tiogadelivered mission-critical materials on time and in budget—just as would beexpected from the 70-year industry veteran.
