Because ที่วัดแรงดัน is very corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted parts.
During a routine capital assessment, ADNOC determined the pumps were due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are important to production and refurbishment had to align precisely with a particular shutdown schedule.
