Inscription.  Early refineries were simple cookers which drew off gasoline, kerosene, and lubricant distillates as the temperature rose. While today's refineries also accomplish that same basic separation, modern refining continues the process by breaking down the hydrocarbon molecule and putting the atoms back together in new arrangements

The crude is heated, and then products are taken off at different temperatures. Depending on the complexity of the refinery, other units can then alter or recombine the molecules. Depending ?n the desired menu of products, no two refineries are exactly alike. Units include catalytic crackers, hydro- crackers, cokers, polymerization units, and more.

The modern world uses petroleum products in numerous ways, far beyond the fuels that power our cars or the asphalt that paves our roads. Petroleum by-products are found in everything from credit cards to disposable diapers, from deodorant to fertilizer. Petroleum is essential to our way of life. in order to make different products.
