Bad Actor – Sea Water Cooling

Bad Actor – Sea Water Cooling

Sea water effects

A client’s petrochemical facility had poor performance in their 56,770,000 kg/hr sea water cooling plant, with high fouling and leaking isolation valves, that was limiting process throughput.

Becht’s multidisciplinary team reviewed the system design and hydraulics, along with interviewing personnel from eight of the client’s departments.

Becht developed the following risk-ranked priorities: (1) ERPs, (2) filtration, (3) CL02 treatment modules, (4) pump sizing, (5) isolation valves, and (6) a condition monitoring program.

With a holistic approach toward examining all aspects of operation of the sea water cooling facility, Becht was able to develop practical modifications to avoid the need for a replacement unit.
