The UK firm provided the unique pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform situated in the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is very corrosive, Amarinth initially used titanium alloy for all wetted elements.
During a routine capital evaluation, ADNOC decided the pumps have been due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are critical to manufacturing and refurbishment had to align exactly with a selected shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule wouldn’t enable the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, assessment 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 assessment report inside five working days and propose two refurbishment projects. The first concerned a full rebuild, take a look at and warranty of the first pump replacing all of the titanium parts including impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work needed to be completed in simply eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium components and was capable of have the components manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second venture undertook the identical work on the opposite two backup pumps to be completed on a 24-week schedule.
เกจวัดแรงดันpsi , managing director of Amarinth, stated: “Having provided the original pumps to ADNOC we have a wealth of experience in working with titanium parts. We are additionally happy with the expansion of our local UAE facility for service and help and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this explicit refurbishment, benefiting each ADNOC and the local financial system.”
