Elliott to hold ribbon cutting ceremony for $60 MM cryogenic pump testing facility
Company officials and invited guests will gather on October 22, 2021 to commemorate the completion of Elliott’s new $60 MM state-of-the-art cryogenic pumps testing facility. The 10:30 AM ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the new facility, 718 Bullitt Avenue in Jeannette.
Construction on the Cryodynamic Products testing facility kicked off in December 2019. The 13-acre campusis situated on the former Jeannette Glass property, and encompasses six buildings, including an indoor enclosed test loop. The test loop features two cryogenic pump test stands and a dedicated cryogenic expander test stand.
"Our new world class facility gives us the capability to test a full range of cryogenic pumps and liquid expanders, from the smallest units, to units larger than those currently available in the industries we serve,” said Mark Babyak, VP of Cryodynamic Products and Industrial Products at Elliott. “We can test our customers’ units with liquid nitrogen, natural gas, or propane, depending on their specific application, and we’re equipped with the latest instrumentation technology to ensure the best testing experience in the market. This investment demonstrates Elliott’s commitment to our employees and to the community at large, moving forward and beyond together."
Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
