Special Focus on VGO Pump 3- Technical Innovations
On June 12, 2020, VGO Hydrocracking Feed Pump (SDT70-300) produced by CQPI was put into operation successfully with excellent performance, and it broke through many bottleneck technologies of high-end pump manufacturing.
Main parameters and operation conditions as follows:
Parameters of pump are rated flow 65m3 / h, rated head 2,985m, rated speed 6,000 rpm, and medium is VGO in temperature of 210 ℃ ~ 260 ℃ ~ 350 ℃including 5% WT metal catalyst particles. The pump adopts radial split double casing barrel structure (BB5). Its core package adopts axial split structure (BB3) with 10-stage impellers arranged symmetrically. The mechanical seal applies plan32 + 54 for sealing and flushing. The pump unit is equipped with gear box and independent lubricating oil system as well as mechanical seal flushing circulating oil system.
Critical highlights in bottleneck technologies:
On the condition of low flow and high head, the pump speed is high but specific speed is very low. The inner casing of pump adopts axial split to realize the maintenance on site and save operation cost, but this construction cause big difficult on casting and machining, and the seal between upper and lower casing under 350℃ is difficult too, which breaks through the existing technology cognition and application of pump industry.
Due to the medium containing 5% WT metal catalyst particles, special processing craft, the impeller, the surface hardness of the wetted parts like impeller, seal ring and casing etc. reaches 700HV, and surface hardening layer thickness reaches 0.6 mm, which is exceed 500HV than hardness of the catalyst particles, and ensure the parts wear resistance and service life.
