Sundyne, a leader in the design and manufacture of centrifugal sealless magnetic drive pumps, today announces the selection of their HMD / Kontro sealless magnetic drive API 685 compliant pumps by a major Malaysian refinery that is currently upgrading equipment throughout their facility.
As refining and petrochemical processing operators around the world face increasing pressure to comply with stringent health and safety regulations, they are replacing their aging single seal pumps with efficient and highly reliable Sundyne sealless magnetic drive pumps. These pumps eliminate dangerous leaks and put an end to costly seal maintenance.
The customer required a cost effective and highly reliable pump to replace existing API 610 vertical pumps with single seal systems that are prone to leakage and emissions. Sundyne specified the GSPV API 685 sealless magnetic drive vertical pump for their application. In total, Sundyne provided 6 vertical and 2 horizontal API 685 pumps to directly replace the old sealed units handling stripper reflux and debutanizer reflux applications.
The new replacement pumps, which include optional secondary containment, are simple by design and eliminate the expense of upgrading or maintaining the old pumps to double mechanical seals. Each pump also features the Sundyne VapourView Pump Protection System to protect the pump from damage that can occur due to incorrect priming, venting or cavitation; as well as the Sundyne ZeroLoss high efficiency, non-metallic containment shell, which reduces operational costs by improving the pump’s resistance to adverse operating conditions. Furthermore, the new pumps install directly into the customer’s existing process piping, representing additional cost savings.
Headquartered in Arvada, Colo., USA, Sundyne is a leading manufacturer of highly reliable and efficient centrifugal pumps and compressors for use in oil and gas production, refining, petrochemical, chemical, power generation and water processing industries. Sundyne is the world leader in delivering low-flow high-head integrally geared centrifugal pumps and compressors; as well as safe and efficient sealless magnetic drive pumps. Sundyne pumps and compressors meet stringent API and ISO standards. Sundyne is owned and operated by Accudyne Industries.
