Flowserve Nets Three-Year Contract
Flowserve Corp., a provider of flow control products and services, said it received a three-year contract in September by Bangchak Petroleum Public Co. Ltd. (Thailand) to implement its online assurance program.
The Bangchak program will incorporate the IPS APEX data acquisition system, and initially focus on monitoring the critical enhanced hot separator pump system that is part of the refinery’s HyCycle Unicracking process unit.
This online asset management program incorporates Web-based data aggregation tools and is designed to enable specialized technical experts from Flowserve to monitor process conditions and anticipate failure modes for critical plant assets, the company said.
A vital part of the program is the Flowserve Technology Advantage Portal, a Web-based data/information aggregation system. Through this portal, Bangchak plant operators and Flowserve technical experts can collaboratively view plant asset information from several sources. In addition, information can be exchanged regarding equipment and process conditions to ensure maximum equipment and unit availability.
