The UK company supplied 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 very corrosive, Amarinth initially used titanium alloy for all wetted elements.
During a routine capital evaluation, ADNOC determined the pumps had been due for refurbishment. เกจวัดแรงดันไนโตรเจนราคา dosing pumps are crucial to production and refurbishment needed to align precisely with a particular shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule would not enable 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 capable of full the strip and assessment report within 5 working days and propose two refurbishment initiatives. The first concerned a full rebuild, take a look at and warranty of the first pump changing all of the titanium parts including impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work wanted to be accomplished in just eight weeks.

The second challenge undertook the identical work on the opposite two backup pumps to be completed on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “Having equipped the unique pumps to ADNOC we have a wealth of expertise in working with titanium parts. We are also 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 local economic system.”
