SASOL has taken delivery of four Sundyne LMV311 feed-pump skids for propylene transfer at the C3 stabilisation project under construction at its Secunda complex.
The four machines are identical small-footprint, integrally geared-driven centrifugal pumps designed and manufactured specifically for chemical and petrochemical applications to ISO 13709 and API 610 Edition 10 standards.
After installation, the feed-pump skids will be supported and serviced by AESPUMP, Sundyne’s newly appointed channel partner and service provider for its product range throughout South Africa. AESPUMP is an independent company with a focus on the support of petrochemical refineries and mining operations, and the repair of API 610 pumps.
It has a strong presence in Secunda, with a workshop that incorporates a recently commissioned test bay, new machinery and clean-room facilities for flameproof pump repairs, and a spray booth and drying chamber for Belzona protective coatings. Machines weighing up to ten tons are accepted for repair.
In addition to Sundyne, AESPUMP’s Secunda facility has been approved as an accredited service centre by KSB Pumps, Hidrostal, Ecochem Pumps, Franklin Electric, Netzsch, Helico and SS Pumps. The facility is ISO 9001, ISO 29001, ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 accredited, and is equipped to ensure that repaired machines comply fully with all health and safety legislation. It also has MASC (Mining and Surface Certification) and SANS 60079-01.1 (electric apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres) for flameproofing, including OD 014 and OD 015.
USA-based Sundyne is a leading manufacturer of centrifugal pumps and compressors for oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, power generation and water processing industries worldwide. The company has been active in South Africa for 40 years.
