The UK company provided the original 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 highly corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted parts.
During a routine capital evaluation, ADNOC decided the pumps had been due for refurbishment. เพรสเชอร์เกจ dosing pumps are critical to production and refurbishment had to align exactly 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 able to full the strip and assessment report inside five working days and propose two refurbishment tasks. The first concerned a full rebuild, test and warranty of the first pump changing all of the titanium components including impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work needed to be completed in simply eight weeks. เพรสเชอร์เกจ prioritised the ordering of the titanium components and was in a place to 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 completed on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, stated: “Having provided the original pumps to ADNOC we have a wealth of experience in working with titanium components. We are additionally pleased with the growth of our local UAE facility for service and support and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this specific refurbishment, benefiting each ADNOC and the native financial system.”
