Inline Blending

Inline blending is a controlled method that allows for the continuous mixing of various blend components to achieve a defined specification. Compared to batch blending, inline blending offers numerous benefits:

  • Reduced Process Time: Streamline your operations and get faster results.
  • Flexibility: Easily accommodate last-minute changes in shipping schedules.
  • Improved Accuracy: Achieve more precise blending specifications.
  • Cost Efficiency: Reduce the need for extensive storage capacity and capital investment.


Our KPS inline blending solutions are versatile and can be utilized in various applications, such as:

Crude Oils

Performance Guarantee

With inline blending it’s not just the purchase of the right components; it is the integration of them to form a complete system. Depending upon the compositions of the liquids, the proper materials need to be selected. The valves, meters, analyzers, etc. enables the blend components to be simultaneously measured and controlled while heading towards the blender header to produce a final product. At the end of the blender header adequate mixing takes place that can be analyzed to allow for a quality trim and blender optimization. The KPS blending solutions are custom designs, supplied as a turnkey package, fully skid- mounted and with an overall performance guarantee.

The selection of the proper blender control philosophy is dependent upon the constraints of the existing infrastructure, the quality of feedstock, and the final product specifications. The control system defines the stability and performance of the blender, and often requires a quality trim function that utilizes online analyzers to continuously optimize the performance of the blender. By using a combination of measured parameters (such as viscosity, density, sulfur and octane) and/or calculated flow-weighted quality parameters, quality trim blenders can automatically correct for any variations in the feedstock quality or errors arising from the blending models.
The blender philosophy can be migrated directly into the plant wide DCS control system to allow for a completely integrated solution for the plant that is fully supported by operation’s house contractor. Functionalities like recipe management, alarms, reports and batch information can be used up to its full potential and can customize their user interface to meet the requirement.
