Transmix Processing

Transmix is received by either pipeline or tanker truck and is offloaded through a filter and meter into our storage tank. Product is then pumped from the tank through a second filter and onto a process heater. The heater is a natural gas-fired unit that raises the product temperature to approximately 475 F, creating steam which is separated in a distillation column. The light ends (gasoline) go overhead and the heavy ends (diesel) are taken off from the bottom of the column. A recycle stream is used to maintain temperature and quality in the column. The finished streams are sampled and sent to our onsite lab for testing and certification. Once certified, the product is resold through our terminal.
