Sulzer has been awarded a frame contract for process and medium consistency pumps to the Horizonte 2 project by Fibria Celulose SA, a Brazilian forestry company and the world’s leading eucalyptus pulp producer. Fibria’s new production line will be built in the Três Lagoas Unit in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul and it is scheduled for startup in late 2017.
Fibria’s new production line with an annual capacity of 1.75 million tons will increase the capacity of Fibria’s existing Três Lagoas mill to 3.05 million tons of pulp per year. Sulzer supplies the manufacturing, testing, packaging, and installation supervision of the centrifugal pumps. The pump package contains highly efficient
Recently the KSB Group received a multi-million euro order to supply a total of 200 pumps for three new power stations to be built in Egypt. The order comprises
- 36 boiler feed pumps,
- 24 condensate pumps and
- 8 cooling water pumps as well as
- 132 process pumps in a range of variants.
The new SNS end suction single stage process pump range is designed to exceed “the highest standards of performance and reliability, and also the design requirements of the ISO5199 standard. For the pump users this means substantial savings in total life-cycle costs and a reduced environmental footprint.”
The new pump range was developed for pumping applications in the
- pulp and paper,
- water and wastewater,
- chemical processing,
- oil and gas,
- hydrocarbon processing, and
- general industries.
The hydraulic diaphragm metering Orlita Evolution form an integrated product range with stroke lengths of 15 to 40 mm. This covers the capacity range from 3 to 7,400 l/h at 400 to 10 bar. A wide range of drive versions is available, including some for use in Ex-zone 1 and 2. The Orlita Evolution product range is designed to comply with API 675. This pump serie meets the most exacting safety requirements as an extremely robust hydraulic diaphragm metering pump. It stands out thanks to its PTFE multi-layer diaphragm with integral diaphragm rupture warning system and unique diaphragm position control. Its modular construction offers extremely good flexibility in terms of applications.
With the DF(P)DGS6 EagleBurgmann offers reliable shaft sealing for API 610 high-performance pumps, e.g. BB3 and BB4 process pumps, and vertical pumps applied in liquefied gas fractionation, in pump stations of downstream NGL (Natural Gas Liquids) pipelines and also in CO2 applications.
Numerous plant operators experience problems incurred by temperature and pressure fluctuations in the pump. In conjunction with the low vapor pressure margin of the medium (e.g. ethane, propane), this can cause phase transitions between liquid and gas at the seal faces – they run dry. Conventional mechanical seals consequently sustain damages which results in seal failures.
The G3M, a heavy-duty, medium-sized triplex drive unit, was originally developed to bring re-liquefied boil-off gases from LNG tankers to a high pressure level, rendering these gases usable for the ships’ propulsion system. As a rugged workhorse, it is also ideal for various other applications, including use in the chemical industry or for offshore applications on oil platforms. The Lewa Triplex G3M process diaphragm pump was one of the main exhibits of Lewa GmbH at Achema 2015.
The G3M is an intermediate size product in the Lewa portfolio that attains a maximum output of 200 kW thanks to its stroke length of 120 mm and a rod force of 125 kN. It is intended for use primarily in the oil and gas industry, as well as the chemical process industry. The chief application in the former sector is injecting monoethylene glycol and methanol. In the process industry, a wide variety of pumping tasks in pressure ranges between 40 and 750 bar can be managed. Other possible applications include handling highly flammable materials such as vinyl acetate, slurry in the wet oxidation or high-pressure metering of liquid ammonia.
In the existing chemical installation in a Wacker Chemie plant, the safety-related design of the relevant pump systems had to be thoroughly renovated. One of the basic requirements for the redesign was that diaphragm pumps themselves had to remain absolutely hermetically tight, even at high working temperatures of +170 °C during normal operations and brief peaks as high as +200 °C. As a result, Lewa developed an individual solution to meet the specific customer requirements.
“As an additional security measure, the pressure-free hydraulic reservoir behind the diaphragm is blanketed with nitrogen as a protective gas”, explains Lewa project lead Rainer Sonnenfroh.
Largest single order in company’s history: The Umm Wual phosphate project in northern Saudi Arabia, concerned with the conveyance of the country’s rich deposits of phosphates, is currently being implemented on behalf of Ma’aden (Saudi Arabian Mining Company). The deposits will, among other things, be processed to produce NPK and DAP fertilisers. To this end, Ma‘aden has commissioned the construction of a new plant for the production of fertilisers at the Waad Al-Shamal phosphate industrial complex. The plant will be designed and built by the Spanish industrial plant manufacturer Intecsa Ingenieria Industrial SA. Ma’aden Phosphates Company, one of the largest fertiliser producers in the world, will act as plant operator.
Up to Spring 2015, Friatec AG – Division Rheinhütte Pumpen will supply a total of 85 complete pump units for this plant.
KSB got a contract to supply 189 process pumps for the new Nghi Son refinery in Vietnam. The location is situated around 200 kilometres south of Hanoi in the Tinh Gia district. The plant under construction is Vietnam’s second refinery and is due to enter operation in 2017. The pumps will be used in crude oil distillation and aromatic compounds production. Depending on the fluid to be handled, the casings will be made of either steel or stainless steel. Impellers, shafts and casing wear rings will be manufactured from corrosion-resistant stainless steels.
