Recently delivered Side Stream Cooling Water Filtration Package

Date: 04-03-2019

Recently Royal Dahlman, Maassluis - The Netherlands, has recently delivered a Side Stream Cooling Water Filtration package for the MMG Light and SCOT-1 Revamp Project, Al-Jubail Refinery, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With a production capacity of 305,000 barrels per day (b/d) the complex is of the world's largest export refineries covering two square kilometers. Since the commercial production began in May 1985 the refiner is operating multiple Side Stream Cooling Water Filtration packages from Royal Dahlman. Royal Dahlman is well known for its deep know-how in designing cooling water and produced water filtration systems, especially in desert conditions in the Middle East. Engineering and project management for the project was performed in India. This system handles a flow of 30 m3/h of cooling water at a clean bed pressure drop less than 100 mbar. With an inlet water quality content of 75 ppm (total suspended solids, TSS), the filtered effluent will contain on an average basis a TSS level (per cycle) of less than 15 ppm. Dahlman has fabricated, assembled, tested and inspected the package in The Netherlands.

Features & Benefits of ROYAL DAHLMAN Cooling Water Filtration Packages

Proven technology – Royal Dahlman systems are running in excellent operation, both onshore and offshore with major Oil & Gas companies for many years now, which demonstrates the reliability of our products.

Custom made – We design and engineer our units to all international standards and Clients specific project requirements. As a result, all work is kept centralized, while keeping the costs low and quality and flexibility high.

Smallest Plot space – Royal Dahlman makes use of unique highly effective distribution nozzles. As a result, the filtration capacity of the sand bed is most effectively used and cleaned, reducing the required sand volume and thus plot space.

Optimal backwashing with long life of the media – A unique internal design with proprietary flow distribution nozzles provide proven technology and gives the absolute best backwashing results, with no formation of mud balls. Mud balls may form when the filter is not optimally backwashed.

Performance software modelling – Filter cycle times and differential pressure graphs are calculated for different solid loadings using software which provide operators the most accurate filtration performances and guarantees.
