Sampling Crude Oil Derivatives for Analysis

This application note provides an overview of the successful use of hydraulically flexed diaphragm pumps as the pumping and metering component of analysis equipment used in a crude oil refinery operation.

THE INDUSTRY

A supply chain solutions company and industry leader in providing pipes, valves, valve automation, fittings, mill/tool supplies, safety products and associated equipment to a number of industries in the energy and industrial market sectors has developed an analysis equipment package to be used in assessing crude oil refinery processes in Kazakhstan.

THE APPLICATION

An on stream hydrogen sulphide and mercaptan analysis equipment package is operated at a refinery in Kazakhstan. The plant was constructed with outdated design and manufacturing processes and it is not well maintained. A sample feed booster pump is used to pump refined crude oil derivatives for analysis.

THE PUMP SOLUTION

Hydracell D03 Series hydraulically flexed piston diaphragm pumps are close coupled to variable speed AC inverter controlled motors. Pumps are supplied with toolkits and a significant number of fluid end kits to support use at the Kazakhstan refinery.
