Sealless pumps bring savings in time, resources, skill sets and ongoing maintenance, whilst also reducing health and safety risk and potential damage to the environment.
Time is money. Whether you are the consultant, contractor or the client, reduced design and specification time, even the benefit of less HAZOPS and monitoring procedures, will contribute to faster project times. These then translate into lower costs and quicker implementation, such that a new or refurbished plant can be up and running much faster.
With sealless pumps, savings can be made at every stage of the project: design, engineering, procurement, installation, documentation and commissioning. Then the time savings continue once the pumps are up and running. Less maintenance, longer time between failures (MTBF) and a more rapid return to operation, all contribute to enhanced profitability and margins.
Examples of how costs can be contained include the following:
- Lower Installation Costs: No Large baseplate and foundation required, no Cooling water piping, less instrument wiring and connections, less instrument configuration (DCS) and no barrier fluid (first fill).
- Lower Project Costs: Lower Project Costs: Less documentation for system and instrumentation with shorter specification times thanks to quicker HAZOP meetings, due in part to there being no need to consider the PED (Pressure Equipment Directive) and SIL(Safety Integrity Level) requirements.
- Lower Operating Costs: No Repair or replacement of seals and bearings, no replenishment of barrier fluid, no maintenance hours to operate and maintain seal systems and less lost production during downtime, no removal of barrier fluid from product and no maintaining of seals on stand-by pumps.
The adoption of sealless pumps can achieve the step-change savings that are needed from concept to completion of your project and beyond, throughout the life of the pump.
