URACA has released a free white paper, which provides more details of two pump units that the company delivered to Japan for the conveyance of oil deposits. Both units were meant for the Japanese state-owned energy group in Negishi and had been ordered by the engineering company UBE, also located in Japan.
Especially impressive is the data of the unit: a pump type KD 827 is mounted on a base frame (approximately 9m x 4m). The pump alone weighs approximately 18t, with each of the three stuffing boxes, which can be cooled or pre-heated, weighing 1,000kg. The supply of pump cooling is taking on an extra plunger pump type KD716, which is mounted on the unit. The whole unit weighs approximately 45t and has an installed power of about 350kW.
For an optimal adaptation of the capacity to the respective process parameters, the pump units are equipped with the most up-to-date control engineering. Advantageous in particular have been the experiences of the past 30 years, which were taken into consideration and had been converted in this project.
