Sulzer Pumps Receives Important Order
In July 2005, the Brazilian oil company Petrobras commissioned the Customer Service Support Brazil to retrofit two GSG boiler feed pumps installed in the RLAM refinery, one of ten Petrobras refineries in Brazil.
Sulzer Pumps will also provide engineering support to modify piping lay out, and will supervise the project, the erection, and the start up. Petrobras’ main concern is to decrease or avoid shut downs on steam plants, to increase mean time between failure and the overall reliability. The order includes an upgrade of the sleeve bearings and the forced lubrication unit. Sulzer Pumps also delivers a speed control, two new base plates, automatic recirculation valves and monitoring instrumentation, as well as field service.
