Amarinth has refurbished sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps for ADNOC on schedule utilizing its facility in the United Arab Emirates to fulfill strict shutdown deadlines.

The UK firm provided the original pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform located within the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is extremely corrosive, Amarinth initially used titanium alloy for all wetted parts.
During a routine capital assessment, ADNOC determined the pumps were due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are important to manufacturing and refurbishment needed to align precisely with a selected 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 in a place to complete the strip and assessment report within 5 working days and propose two refurbishment initiatives. The first concerned a full rebuild, test and guarantee of the first pump replacing all of the titanium parts together with impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work wanted to be accomplished in simply eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium parts and was capable of have the parts manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second venture undertook the identical work on the other two backup pumps to be accomplished on a 24-week schedule.
เพรสเชอร์เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำ , managing director of Amarinth, stated: “Having equipped the unique pumps to ADNOC we now have a wealth of experience in working with titanium parts. We are also happy with the growth of our native UAE facility for service and support and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this explicit refurbishment, benefiting each ADNOC and the local financial system.”
