The Middle Distillates product range

Our brands include PKWF™, Paraset® and Printosol™ for printing ink distillates, Clairsol® for drilling mud fluids, and Pilot® for speciality base oils.

Using our market understanding and experience, we can tailor oils for particular industrial purposes, define specification ranges for individual end-uses, refine customer-specific oils and advise on base oils for a wide variety of applications.

Our flexible feedstocks and production facilities allow us to provide a wide range of specifications and custom blends. With multiple production and storage locations, service outages can be minimised and the refining and storage of products can be located closer to our customers.

With our production and logistics network and an additional international sales and technical team working throughout Europe, we can ensure the optimisation of processing and a constant exchange of improvements and technical information.

Our production sites are well located, with transport links allowing products to be readily transported to customers using rail, road or marine routes.
