เกจวัดแรงดันไนโตรเจนราคา provided the original pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform positioned 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 parts.
During a routine capital evaluation, ADNOC determined the pumps were due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are critical to production and refurbishment needed 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 able to full the strip and evaluation report within 5 working days and suggest two refurbishment initiatives. The first concerned a full rebuild, check and warranty of the first pump replacing all of the titanium components together with impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work needed to be accomplished in simply eight weeks. เกจวัดแรงดันลม10bar prioritised the ordering of the titanium components and was capable of have the parts manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second venture undertook the same work on the opposite two backup pumps to be accomplished on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, mentioned: “Having provided the original pumps to ADNOC we’ve a wealth of expertise in working with titanium parts. We are also happy with the growth of our local UAE facility for service and assist and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this explicit refurbishment, benefiting each ADNOC and the native financial system.”
