Transneft and Transneft Baltic Obtain Utility Patent for Main Pump Unit (MPU) Leakage Discharge Piping Manifold

Date of publication: 06 December 2018 Print

The Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) has granted Transneft and Transneft Baltic utility patent No 184075 for the MPU Leakage Discharge Piping Manifold.

The proposed improvement to the MPU leakage discharge piping manifold ensures more reliable and safer MPU operation. This is achieved by altering pipework, adding new design elements, installing an extra reed switch in the level control sensor with transmission through the oil pumping station’s (PS) automation system to the automated workstation of the PS’s operator to ensure prompt notice about the leakage level in the chamber.

The development’s results are intended for introduction at Transneft’s operational facilities and are recommended for large-scale implementation in industrial production.
