Applications
  • Auxiliary applications
    The complex processes performed on a typical FPSO rely on the performance of dozens of pumps handling a variety of liquids under widely varying process conditions.

  • Crude oil offloading
    Depending on the FPSO design, a booster pump is often required to export crude oil delivered to deck level by the FPSO cargo system.

  • Crude oil pipeline mountainous terrain
    In remote areas, there may not be power available, or, terrain may be so steep that all the pressure rise has to be made in 1 station. Each pump must make the entire head. Pumps are often run in parallel. Hundreds of Sulzer multistage pump performances meet such high pressure requirements.

  • Crude oil pipeline offshore to onshore
    All the pressure rise must be made in the crude shipping pumps on the platform. Salt spray is corrosive and platform movement during storms can affect reliability. Specially packaged Sulzer multistage pumps are used to move crude oil from offshore platforms to onshore storage or pipeline systems.

  • Crude oil pipeline onshore flat terrain
    Power cost is the largest operating cost for crude oil pipelines on flat terrain. Flow rate, viscosity, pipe size, and station spacing all affect pump selection. 2 or 3 mainline pumps are often run in series. Sulzer can help with FEED assistance, rerates to optimize performance and lower power costs.

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