Pumps with double-wall isolation shells transmitting more than 100 kW

After extensive tests and successful final inspection, Klaus Union has delivered 31 centrifugal magnetic drive pump skids for a large-scale project in the USA.

The highlight of this delivery is the special design of the “Secondary Containment” acc. API 685 2nd. Edition in the form of double-wall isolation shells, which are used for the first time at 3.500 rpm with transmission capacities of more than 100 kW! In addition, 3 large pumps (more than 230 kW power consumption) were supplied, which will be operated in parallel at high temperature (> 300 °C) delivering combined nearly 1.000 m³/h.

The magnetically coupled centrifugal pumps type SLM NVO according to ASME 73.3/ISO 15783, SLM AVP according to API 685 2nd Ed. and SLM GVOT are used in a plant for the production of linear alpha-olefins. The pump kits include electric motors, couplings, instrumentation for monitoring, base plates and painting. All equipment was strictly executed according to the project specifications, which were specially created for this complex and demanding large-scale project.
