Project in Sinopec Maoming achieved a significant milestone this week. The heat tracing system had been installed on the 5+ KM sulfur pipeline, and the trial run started. As the pipeline required a very limited, around 135 ℃, operating temperature range. And only jacketed pipe heat tracing solution could meet the requirement. The system was expensive and difficult to maintain.
To help our customers to reduce the cost and complexity, we introduced the industry’s leading heat tracing solution with our highly thermal conductive FLEX series heat transfer materials. Together with Aerogel as the thermal insulator, our solution can provide similar performance as the jacketed pipe system does but dramatically reduces cost and complexity. After more than one year’s test run, our unique designed tracing system has been proven to be effective for sulfur pipe operation.
Pyramid Energy Transfer Technology (PETT) starts to build a heat tracing system for the sulfur pipeline for Sinopec in Maoming, a city in south China.
Maintaining an old jacketed pipe system has never been an easy job for Sinopec. After more than one year’s test run. Sinopec selected our leading thermal conductive technology and heat tracing solution. Now PETT will replace it with a new tracing system, which reduces both maintenance cost and technical difficulty and also improves the system’s reliability of the sulfur pipeline.
Thanks to the delivery team’s effort, most of the products are ready. Our construction team are working on this project from late Nov. 2019
After more than one year’s test run, Pyramid Energy (PETT) proved its innovative FLEX series solution can support the customer’s rigorous heat tracing in sulfur transport.
Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical Company just selected Pyramid Energy’s FLEX series heat transfer solution to replace old jacket pipe heating system to support sulfur transportation in a DN100/NPS4′ pipeline under temperature between 135 to 160 degree C. Along with more than 1km long pipeline, customer suffering sulfur solidification and high maintenance cost. With PETT’s FLEX solution, the customer dramatically improves reliability and tremendously reduces maintenance cost.
This important winning demonstrates not just FLEX series’ unmatched flexibility, but also demonstrates its capability to improve the performance of any thermal management system significantly.
