Amarinth delivers condensate pump to Algerian refinery
Amarinth, a UK-based pump manufacturer, has delivered a bespoke 2.8m vertical hydrocarbon condensate pump to a Sonatrach refinery in Algeria.
The delivered pump will act as a direct plug-and-play replacement for an existing unreliable pump.
The replacement pump required rapid delivery due to concerns that the refinery could be shut down if a catastrophic failure of the old pump occurred.
Sonatrach wanted the pump to be replaced without changing any of the existing plant or pipework.
Amarinth selected one of its T-Series vertical pumps, an industrial pump with an API certification, which it could tailor to Sonatrach’s requirements.
The company designed an oversized mounting plate to enable the new pump to fit directly into the existing plant and also modified various fittings and fixings to suit the existing pipework.
