KROHNE, a world leader in the supply of Process Control and Industrial Instrumentation has been present in South Africa since 1967.

KROHNE South Africa has established its brand as one that is associated with reliability, efficiency and effectiveness.

Production plant performance depends not only on the size of the plant but also on factors such as availability, reliability, product quality and yield. Other important aspects include minimal energy consumption and material use, the reduction of waste and concomitant substances and the lowering of the cost of ownership. Quick and simple start-up and shut down as well as partial load operation are also in demand. And this is often required under extreme environmental conditions, the likes of which are rarely seen in other industries. What is required here is superior and precise measuring and control technology, which in turn is based on innovative measuring and analysis methods.

As the main instrumentation vendor, KROHNE offers its customers a wide range of products with virtually every technologically significant measuring process, specifically designed for use in the chemical and petrochemical industry.
