SPO (Plan 53B)

Features

Pressurized barrier system (closed circuit) for use in seal systems with high pressures and/or for hazardous/environmentally harmful processes. The SPO (Plan 53B) range is available with a pressure accumulator, cooler (finned tube, water or air cooler with fan) and a wide range of instruments.

Circulation in accordance with API 682 / ISO 21049: Plan 53B

Advantages

  • Pressurization is by means of a pre-loaded bladder accumulator
  • The nitrogen is separated from the barrier medium by membranes in the accumulator: nitrogen cannot get into the barrier medium or process medium
  • Barrier pressure is created without any need for connection to a nitrogen supply
  • Available with finned tube, water or air coolers with fan
  • Modular system: combination with a wide range of system components/instruments possible

Standards and approvals

  • PED 2014/68/EU (Design and production in accordance with EU Pressure Equipment Directive)
  • ASME VIII, Div. 1 (Design, calculation and production)

Functional description

The SPO is designed to perform the following functions of a barrier system:
  • to pressurize the barrier chamber
  • leakage compensation
  • to cool the seal


Pressurization (> process pressure) prevents the process medium from getting into the barrier circuit or the atmosphere. Pressurization is supplied by a pressure accumulator which is pre-loaded with nitrogen. Circulation in the barrier circuit takes place by the thermosiphon principle or by forced circulation, e.g. with a pumping screw.

Notes

A refilling unit has to be provided.

Other versions and connections (flanged, threaded, welded) on request.

1) Design data, permissible working values depend on the actual conditions of service.
2) The cooling performance depends on the available fluids, their temperatures and flow rates. Please contact EagleBurgmann for professionally selecting the correct heat exchanger.
