3.5MW subsea electric motor tested successfully

Flowserve Corporation has announced the successful completion of full load performance testing of a 6.6 kV, 3.5 MW, high-torque subsea electric motor. This 4-pole motor is one of the world's largest oil-filled motors designed for subsea applications. The Flowserve facility in Hamburg, Germany, engineered and built the motor using the combined technology of the Flowserve Pleuger and Byron Jackson brand submersible designs. The high-power motor is designed to enable the oil and gas industry to produce ultra-deep subsea fields and is part of a larger technology advancement initiative to develop high-pressure multiphase boosting for subsea applications.

Pump gas seal reduces energy consumption

The GTSP high-temperature pump gas seal increases equipment reliability and reduces energy consumption for the hottest process pumps in refinery and hydrocarbon facilities. Using Flowserve’s exclusive bidirectional wavy face topography, GTSP seals are pressurized with dry steam or nitrogen. Laser-applied wavy face technology creates a gas-film barrier between the seal faces to eliminate seal face wear, minimize fouling, increase long-term equipment reliability, and lower gas consumption. Easier to install and maintain than liquid barrier seals, wavy-face GTSP gas seals eliminate the energy requirements from circulating, cooling and churning a liquid barrier, and create significantly less heat generation and torque at the seal faces. Sinusoidal waves allow bi-directional operation to simplify installation on double-ended pumps, while the smooth-wave texture is self-cleaning to resist contamination. Alloy 718 welded metal bellows assembly construction offers high resistance to stress corrosion cracking in high-temperature, sulphuric-laden services.
