Offshore production – Seawater lift

Lifting power: harnessing the sea's potential

Sulzer builds both lineshaft and submersible motor vertical seawater lift pumps. Sulzer SMHv and SMDv pumps are vertical shaft in BB1 casing.

FPSO - Seawater Lift
Sulzer’s range of vertical axially split pumps are ideally suited for Seawater Lift Pump. Mounted inside the hull and taking suction from the sea chest, their compact dimensions minimize space. For seawater lift pumps specified mounted inside a caisson, Sulzer is able to provide vertical solutions with electro-submersible motor and traditional line-shaft.

Products
  • HSA axially split single stage between bearing pump
    The HSA API 610 (ISO 13709) Type BB1 is an axially split, single stage, horizontal, double suction, between bearing pump. The Sulzer HSA product range is ideal for long term continuous running services in refineries and pipelines. Its robust casing and custom hydraulics are specifically designed to ensure maximum availability and reduced total life cycle costs. The HSAv with its vertical shaft is used offshore where deck space is limited.

  • SJS submersible pump
    The SJS submersible pumps utilize a submersible motor to drive the Sulzer vertical pump stages. The normal vertical turbine lineshaft and bearings are thus eliminated and power levels to 2 MW (2,700 hp).

  • SJT vertical turbine pump
    SJT pumps are typically used whenever a liquid needs to be pumped upward from ground water tables (deep well pumps), manmade underground storage (caverns) or open bodies of liquid. Fully updated hydraulics and mechanical designs make the SJT highly efficient, cost- effective, and low-maintenance.

  • SJT/SJM CWP vertical pump
    The SJT/SJM CWP are "engineered to order" single stage mixed flow vertical pumps, with semi-open impellers available in sizes starting from 650 mm (26") impeller diameter and nq 75 (Ns 3870). They are mainly designed as cooling water pumps for power applications but can also be used in water or other industries.

  • SMH axially split single stage pump
    SMH pumps are part of the broad single stage, double suction, horizontal split case family within Sulzer. Flowrates are provided to over 11,000 m3/h (50,000 GPM) and heads to over 200m (650 ft).
