The UK company equipped the unique pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform positioned in the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is very corrosive, Amarinth initially used titanium alloy for all wetted parts.
During a routine capital evaluation, ADNOC decided the pumps have been due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are important to production and refurbishment needed to align precisely with a selected shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule wouldn’t allow the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, assessment and refurbishment, so Amarinth used its UAE facility to undertake the work.

The first involved a full rebuild, test and guarantee of the first pump changing all of the titanium elements together with impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work needed to be completed in simply eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium parts and was in a place to have the components manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second project undertook the same work on the opposite two backup pumps to be completed on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “Having equipped the original pumps to ADNOC we’ve a wealth of experience in working with titanium components. pressure gauge ยี่ห้อ tk are also happy with the growth of our local UAE facility for service and help and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this specific refurbishment, benefiting both ADNOC and the native economy.”
