The UK company equipped 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 extremely corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted components.
During a routine capital assessment, ADNOC determined the pumps have been due for refurbishment. weksler pressure gauge ราคา dosing pumps are critical to production and refurbishment had to align exactly with a selected shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule would not allow 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 capable of complete the strip and assessment report inside 5 working days and propose two refurbishment initiatives. The first involved a full rebuild, test and warranty of the primary pump changing all the titanium parts including impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work wanted to be completed in simply eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium parts and was able to have the parts manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second project undertook the same work on the opposite two backup pumps to be accomplished on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, stated: “Having provided the unique pumps to ADNOC we’ve a wealth of experience in working with titanium elements. We are also pleased with the growth of our local UAE facility for service and help and which enabled us to successfully expediate this specific refurbishment, benefiting both ADNOC and the native financial system.”
