Title: ITT uses process knowledge to help Russian refinery solve a pump problem

Based in Russia, one of the world’s largest oil and gas operations engaged ITT to solve the problem of very high motor loads and high vibration levels on eight pumps. The ITT PRO Services team recommended using intermediate trimming diameters and implementing V-trimming in the vanes to alleviate motor overload and high vibration. However, this big crude oil distillation unit was very new and had not been in full operation. Consequently, the customer did not know what actual flows and heads (or duty points) were required for the pumps. The ITT team spent several days on-site speaking with the customer’s specialists and collecting and studying process data to help the customer correctly identify the required pump operation regimes.
