Houston, Texas-based Allied Petrochemical produces petroleum-based distillates like naphtha kerosene and diesel fuel as well as sulfonates, which are used primarily as additives for coatings, greases, oils, and water-soluble detergents.

The refinery depends on Opto 22 SNAP PAC hardware and software products to reliably and accurately control the distillation towers, reactors, storage tanks, and auxiliary equipment such as pumps and valves needed to produce these petroleum-based products.
