Steam Supply and Condensate Recovery System

Wed,26th Sep 2012





In March 2009 an engineering feasibility study was commissioned by an oil refining organisation, to both modify an existing plant and build a new terminal. The subject of this study was relating to the provision of storage and loading / off loading facilities for molten sulphur.

Study results were used to prepare an engineering design together with costs and timescale estimates for procurement and build.

As a principal supplier and stockist of Armstrong equipment we were invited to submit our recommendations for the application of products, taking into consideration technical and operational requirements. In conjunction with Armstrong Int., Pipefit Supplies Limited prepared and submitted comprehensive proposals and costings related to the project. The installation was to provide a new heated tanker off-loading system and modification of two existing storage tanks which have a combined capacity of 12;618m³. Each tank would be fitted with steam heating coils sized to provide a product holding temperature of 140˚C. In addition a new steam jacketed transport line and pumping system would facilitate export of molten sulphur by a new two point loading jetty.

The involvement of Pipefit Supplies Limited included proposals for installation of an effective condensate recovery system. We were invited to offer proposals and a quotation for a non-electric pump and trap recovery system based on actual condensate loads being returned back to the boiler house. An EPT-206 package pumping set, complete with digital cycle counter, was installed on both tanks. These would service the total condensate load of the system and the digital counter would, in part, provide an analysis of energy savings associated with the production of steam.

The effective recovery of condensate would reduce fuel and energy costs associated with producing steam.
