Ebara offers complete package solutions for all of your marine pump requirements. With nearly 4000 marine units installed throughout the world, Ebara has earned a solid reputation for providing machines designed for dependability and endurance.
Similar in construction to the ECC type, these machines are usually located within the refrigerated cargo tank of a marine gas carrier to transfer such fluids as LNG, LPG, Ethylene, etc. These units are available for all applications of liquefied gas carriers and are used for main cargo unloading, stripping, spray, fuel and emergency (retractable) service. Depending on your unique requirements, flow capacities range from 5 to 3000m3/h and with heads up to 200 meters. Additionally, electric power feed cables and deck penetration assemblies to accompany your equipment are available and meet all requirements of major ship classification societies. Special designs with built-in internal filtration are available to handle cargo that is likely to suffer particulate contamination such as LPG. Whatever your situation, Ebara can create a custom package to meet your specific needs.
- Each tank on a liquefied gas carrier typically has two main cargo pumps installed.
- With Ebara’s pumps installed, an entire ship’s cargo can be unloaded in approximately 12 hours (usually less).
- A single stage design is most often used although multi-stage pumps can also be supplied if required.
Spray (Stripping Pumps)
- Using the extremely low NPSH requirements of Ebara’s Spray pumps, cargo tanks can be offloaded to near zero liquid levels, increasing the amount of the delivered cargo, reducing the cost of transportation and the amount of heel product in the tanks during return voyages.
- Ebara Spray pumps commonly achieve a NPSHR as low as 0.3 meters.
- Spray pumps are often used for product recirculation
- Utilizing heel product in keeping the walls cool during the return voyage
- Reducing boil off gas during the next loading process.
- In the highly unlikely event that both cargo pumps were to fail onboard, an emergency pump can be used to empty the cargo pump storage tank so that the main cargo pumps can be removed and serviced.
- To date, thousands of Ebara’s cargo pumps have been delivered and Ebara is not aware of any of our Emergency pumps ever having to be used in service; a testament to the reliability of the Ebara design.
- To meet the growing demand of LNG fueled vessels, Ebara has developed low flow, high head LNG fuel pumps. These submerged pumps are designed to meet the rigorous conditions of marine fueling applications. The rugged construction of these pumps allows years of uninterrupted service, even while operating with fuels containing some amount of contamination.
- Ebara also provides Duel Duty pumps. These machines offer two points of available operation, one being the Spray duty and the second being the Fuel duty; adding more versatility and scope of your cryogenic equipment.
