Amarinth win a significant order for a Mega PTA plant in Portugal from Aker Kaverner. Carbon Trust awards Amarinth a grant to develop efficent pumps & Amarinth release 3D CAD models of API 610 pumps on our website
It doesn’t seem two minutes since the start of the year, but despite the economic gloom spreading across the world, we are pleased to report that Amarinth has already secured a number of significant new orders and is pursuing a number of innovative developments to bring our customers the best pumping technology in the industry.
Amarinth has secured an order in excess of €2M from Aker Kvaerner for 40 centrifugal industrial process pumps to be used in the new mega PTA plant in Portugal. The pumps will be installed at Artenius’ new Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) plant which is being built in Sines, Portugal and will be one of the largest of its kind in Europe. Amarinth are supplying a selection of supper-duplex A Series API 610 OH2 and C Series ISO 5199 pumps with variable speed control. The pumps incorporate an innovative sliding baseplate to alleviate some of the piping loads by allowing the pumps to cope with rapidly changing volumes which would otherwise inject damaging jolts into the plant’s pipework.
Amarinth has been recognised by the Carbon Trust for its innovation and desire to supply pumps that are the most efficient available for a particular customer’s duty. To this end, the Carbon Trust has awarded Amarinth a grant to develop “Tuneable impellers”. The amount of carbon that can be saved by designing pumps to run at the duty BEP rather than the pumps BEP has the potential to be massive. The aim is to make impellers for each customer’s duty point at a commercially acceptable price, thus increasing pump efficiency significantly. Pumps are currently selected on “nearest fit” meaning the customer’s duty can be significantly away from the designed best efficiency. Currently the commercial constraints, such as the time to design each impeller individually along with pattern cost, make bespoke impeller design non viable in most cases. Amarinth is now in the process of forming a consortium for this two year project that will bring together software specialists, foundry specialists as well as our own pump expertise to solve this problem.
When specifying pumps, there are usually a number of laymen engaged in that process. In many cases it can be difficult for those people to understand the various components within a pump and how they all fit together. To help address this problem and make the purchasing process smoother for all concerned, Amarinth has developed on-line models that enable both engineers and other staff to explore a pump in three dimensions. The detailed models can be rotated around to see all aspects and features zoomed into for close inspection. More advanced features are also available such as sectioning and mass properties. Finally a mark-up feature allows sharing of information within the company:
The first of these models cover the A-series OH2 and V-series VS4 pumps and can be viewed here. For more information about Amarinth pumps call us on +44 (0)1394 462 120 or e-mail or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
