Maxi Water VAC for Refinery

The Refinery in Rotterdam is one of the largest refineries in Europe and processes 400,000 barrels of crude daily, which results in an annual output of 19 million tons. BPRR produces oil from a wide range of finished products and semi-finished products, such as LPG, unleaded gasoline, Ultimate, super plus, diesel, kerosine (jet fuel), oil, fuel and raw materials for the petrochemical industry. BPRR supplies the products to all BP service stations in the Netherlands.

The centrifugal compressor filled with Turbinol X46 oil is contaminated with water. Water concentration is; 590ppm. The oil was already changed and the contaminated oil was drained into 5 IBC’s. At RMF Systems headoffice 5 IBC’s were filtered.

The solution for BPRR was a RMF Systems Maxi Water Vac. Our Vacuum Dehydration Unit removes liquid, gas and solid contamination, which are corrosive and contribute to the reduction of machine life. As time was limited, RMF used 2 Maxi Water Vac’s in order to dry 5000 liter of oil in a time frame of only 5 days.
