  • The transfer of fluids between distant regions is mostly done by trucks, trains and ships. In all of these cases, pumps must be used to transfer and load the product to its final destination. These operations are called loading: when loading a transportation or unloading: when the product arrives at its destination and needs to be stored or moved to a new transportation.

    In these applications, it is desirable that the operation be performed:

    •  as quickly as possible,
    • no leaks,
    • unloading is done until the tank is emptied (stripping),
    •   - that the pump fits the product and the distance to be pumped.

    For these reasons, NOTOS® pumps from the 2NS and 4NS range are chosen for this important task.

    Trucks

    The trucks have standard outlet connections, which limits the minimum unloading time. While other pumps begin to vibrate and cavitate before emptying the truck, NOTOS® pumps are more resistant, as they have a high suction power compared to gear or centrifugal pumps.

    Trains

    Hydrocarbons like asphalt and crude oil are transported thousands of kilometers on trains to be processed. When trains arrive at their destination, it is necessary to empty to the last car, which is sometimes hundreds of meters from the pump. The low NPSH required of the NOTOS® 4NS pump is the main advantage of this equipment in this application, ensuring that the cars are completely emptied in minutes.

    Ships

    When large quantities of products need to be transferred over long distances, ships and boats are normally used. In this application, it is desirable that the pumping be done very quickly to reduce the costs of ships stopped at ports. Likewise, fuel ships are loaded before crossing seas and oceans. Due to their high flow capacity, 2NS (up to 650m³ / h) and 4NS (up to 2500m³ / h) lines are widely used for pumping: fuel oil, petroleum, diesel, petrochemicals, among others.

  • Drive Head is an equipment used for oil extraction through progressive cavity pumps. In addition to transmitting torque to the pump, the drive heads have the function of supporting the weight of the rods and also protecting the operator when reversing.

    This was truly the first product in the NETZSCH pump division that was 100% designed and manufactured in Brazil to serve all markets worldwide.

    Since 1990, when NETZSCH manufactured the first prototype, to date, more than 8,000 units have been manufactured. The drive heads produced by NETZSCH do Brasil are internationally recognized and operate in oil fields all over the world: from southern Argentina, through desert regions in the Sahara to the far north of Russia, where temperatures can reach -40 ° Celsius .

    The drive heads produced by NETZSCH are present in more than 30 countries and all this internationalization and versatility occurs due to the innovation and customization applied by the engineering and production team. NETZSCH has the largest product line within the industry, which includes drive heads with pulleys and belts, one or two motors, direct drive with permanent magnet motors or gearmotors. Regarding the certification, these equipments follow the ABNT / NBR-16304 norms and also have ATEX versions, used in the European Community, in environments with explosive atmosphere.

    OPTIMIZED DRIVE HEAD DESIGN FOR RUSSIA AND ASIAN MARKET

    In addition to designing the drive head suitable for the conditions and regulations of each country, when the customer is located more than 10,000 km away, it is also necessary to optimize the size of the equipment, as well as it will be packed and transported to its final destination. Within this concept, our engineering team aims to optimize components that translate into reducing the weight and size of the equipment as a whole, facilitating air or sea transport in containers.

    The main goal e is always to optimize the project, so that maintenance costs can be reduced, without losing the mechanical and operational safety characteristics of the existing equipment. In the project review phase, studies point to a reduction in the amount of material used, in addition to the use of raw materials with specific geometries, facilitating and optimizing machining costs.

    In addition, details such as the space occupied in the packaging complement the project, bringing a new product that is much more competitive and suitable for the market.

    PRODUCTION AND DESTINATION

    By the end of October 2018, around 380 heads were produced within the new technical specifications. The equipment was shipped to customers in Russia, Kazakhstan, Australia and the United States and other countries in Latin America.

  • NEMO® pumps are always facing great challenges, especially when compared to other types of pumps. The most recent case occurred at Petrobras in Rio Grande do Norte, where supporting actors became the main responsible for the oil pumping. The Petrobras facility already operated with the NEMO NM125SY08S48Z Pump, which functioned as a booster for a centrifugal pump and a piston pump. The variable viscosity of the oil produced, which reached 3008 CP at 45 ° C, hindered the suction of piston pumps and raised the pressure in the centrifuge line too much.

    SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM

    NEMO® pumps, with their high suction power up to 8.0 m in height, combined with the ability to operate at high pressure, were put to the test as direct transport and became the solution to the problem. These pumps then became the main responsible for the pumping of oil from the Estreito Collector Station to the UTPF (Fluid Treatment and Processing Unit) of Guamaré (RN), located about 80 km away. Having installed more centrifugal pumps, Petrobras decided to purchase eight more NEMO® pumps model NM180SY02L08Z, to continue feeding the centrifuges. These eight pumps were delivered to Petrobras in March 2017 and the installation is scheduled for the end of 2018.

    ADVANTAGES OF NEMO® IN THIS INSTALLATION

    • High suction power
    • Ability to operate at high pressure
    • Ability to operate with variable viscosities.
