Light and Heavy Hydrocarbons
Light and heavy hydrocarbons are only the trading names that can be a result of the blending, cut distillation, or sweetening unit. Blending is generally performed through a combination of specific materials to achieve the desired specifications. These hydrocarbons can also be considered as one of the by-products of refinery inter-distillation cuts with a boiling range of 40 to 400 °C.
After they are extracted from the distillation tower based on density and type of product, the materials obtained from the cut distillation and sweetening units are transferred to the production and processing units to be blended for the production of light and heavy hydrocarbon.
