The UK firm provided the original pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform located in the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is extremely corrosive, Amarinth initially used titanium alloy for all wetted components.
During a routine capital evaluation, ADNOC determined the pumps had been due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are important to production and refurbishment had to align precisely with a particular shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule would not allow the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, evaluation and refurbishment, so Amarinth used its UAE facility to undertake the work.
Amarinth’s UAE facility was in a place to complete the strip and evaluation report inside 5 working days and propose two refurbishment initiatives. The first concerned a full rebuild, take a look at and guarantee of the primary pump replacing all of the titanium elements together with impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. เกจวัดแรงดันออกซิเจนราคา wanted to be accomplished in just eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium parts and was capable of have the elements manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second challenge undertook the identical work on the opposite two backup pumps to be accomplished on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, stated: “Having supplied the unique pumps to ADNOC we’ve a wealth of expertise in working with titanium elements. We are also happy with the expansion of our local UAE facility for service and help and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this specific refurbishment, benefiting both ADNOC and the native financial system.”
