Special Applications

 

Lube-Power supplies many different types of special applications. We add value by conforming to the scope of the customer and provide as much or as little as needed. These applications cover a vast range but include generally include product and services such as structural welding, piping, instrumentation or electrical. Many times these are pilot or prototype applications that are proprietary and one of a kind. We respect all intellectual property restrictions. In these cases, we complete and provide all required non destructive examinations, documentation and third party certifications as required. Our experienced staff work with the customer as needed to add value and keep the project on schedule and budget. Lube-Power works with a customer’s information or we mutually develop a custom engineered solution no additional cost. Our experienced staff routinely reviews customer specifications and we work through simple to complex applications while educating the customer when needed as part of our engineered solutions service. We will suit your specific needs.

Rundown Tanks

Product Picture

Lube-Power supplies affordable Rundown Tanks in accordance with a standard design or API (American Petroleum Institute) / ISO (International Organization for Standardization)  ISO 10438:2008 Part 2 or ANSI/API 614 Fifth Edition Chapter 2 for your application. The tank can be either an atmospheric type (pressure inside is the same as outside) or a pressurized type (pressure inside is higher than outside). The rundown tank is mounted above the rotating equipment and stores a sufficient volume of fluid that will discharge during an emergency shut-down situation.  A correctly engineered and fabricated rundown tank allows the rotating equipment to coast down during unscheduled downtime.

Lube-Power has pre-engineered standard rundown tanks per our standard design or ISO 10438:2008 Part 2 or ANSI/API 614 Fifth Edition Chapter 2. We also modify a standard design or start with a custom engineered solution depending upon the customer requirements at no additional cost. Our experienced staff routinely reviews customer specifications and we work through simple to complex applications while educating the customer when needed as part of our engineered solutions service. This product is very customizable to suit your specific needs.

Each system typically includes these major components. Many additional details, options and features are available for each item but not mentioned here. Contact Lube-Power for more information:

  • Tank: The volume requirements are minimally defined by API and needs to be sufficient for the coast down requirements of all equipment. Lube-Power correctly sizes the tank by considering the lubricated equipment, mounting arrangement, system equipment in addition to API requirements.
  • Piping & Valves: Pipe, valves and fittings are used as a conduit for the fluid connected to the tank and rotating equipment circuit. These items must be properly selected to minimize restrictions and avoid leaks. Stainless steel piping, fittings and flanges with carbon steel valves are the minimum requirements. Lube-Power correctly selects the piping and valve arrangement in addition to the minimal API specified requirements.
  • Instruments: Pressure, temperature and level monitoring gauges, switches or transmitters are used to evaluate the rundown tank. Lube-Power correctly selects the instruments arrangement in addition to the minimal API specified requirements to ensure proper operation and control.
