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.
Today, the FLEX series have been customized in our lab against the frozen issue that is very common in the plants of many petroleum production fields in northern Alberta. Even with Electric Heat Tracing (EHT) system, pumps, valves, drip legs, and transmitters often get frozen during winter in northern places.
Our FLEX series HTC has two models available in the market. One is FL1250 supporting up to 700 degrees C, and the other is FL300NH, which is non-hardening HTC supporting up to 180 degrees C. It can easily be reshaped to support thermal exchange with any irregular surfaces found on a pump, valve, drip legs, and transmitters. Together with Nano-technology based insulation cover, our freezing protection solution can prevent any electric traced equipment from freezing during severe winter time.
