Amarinth, a leading company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the Oil & Gas, petrochemical, chemical and industrial markets, has won an order from INEOS to supply two API 610 OH2 pumps with Plan 53B seal support systems for the flare knock-out system at the INEOS onshore refinery at Grangemouth, Scotland.
The mercaptan oxidation (Merox) process at the INEOS Grangemouth plant required two API 610 OH2 pumps to remove the condensate that collects in the flare knock-out drums during the refining process. The pumps would only be operated infrequently, sometimes being dormant for weeks, but would then have to start reliably on-demand when the trigger level in the knock-out drums was reached. The Grangemouth refinery is situated next to the sea and so the pumps would be exposed to the often hostile Scottish elements. INEOS also had stringent site specifications that had to be met as well as needing the pumps on a tight 33 week delivery.
Amarinth设计的泵承受的温度，20C为苏格兰最冷的冬天。 这些泵也被涂上离岸规格生存的恶劣滨海盐碱环境。 由于泵的低使用量，特别加油器被合并，使得在轴承油的任何水可以很容易地识别和去除。
To ensure reliable on-demand operation, Amarinth worked with INEOS to develop a specific maintenance schedule for the pumps to minimise the risk of damage caused during the periods of inactivity, particularly around preventing the seal faces sticking.
奥利弗Brigginshaw，Amarinth董事总经理表示：“我们很高兴与这个来自英力士这让我们以我们丰富的海上经验应用到这个命令，尽管它是一个在岸的应用一阶。 我们注意到更多客户要求现场调试时，他们把他们的订单这为我们提供了从网站有用的反馈，当我们把我们训练有素的工程师来开展这项工作，我们就可以纳入未来的设计和改进。 这也是令人鼓舞的是机会的英国离岸和在岸市场内的水平继续保持强劲。“
