Project Description

Region Lukoil-Nizhnevolzhskneft OOO, Astrakhan, Russian Federation
Dates 2018-2019
Scope Project scope included engineering and procurement of a centrifugal separator as a part of the fuel gas package unit.

Company had to ensure safe and reliable operation of the designed separator during the specified service life (35 years).

PASS software used PASS/EQUIP Vessel
How PASS software helped in the project execution

Calculation performed using PASS/EQUIP Vessel provided evaluation of:

  • wall thickness of shell and nozzles from the action of pressure under specified operating conditions;
  • strength in operating conditions and test mode;
  • loads transferred by equipment to supports and steel structures.

PASS software allowed a 4x reduction of man-hours of personnel directly involved in the calculations.
