Additional KSME Swirltube Axial Cyclone Orders…

 

KIRK Process Solutions has recently been awarded several projects from different customers all requiring our high capacity axial flow cyclones for liquid mist removal from a range of gas streams at pressures between 10 and 80 bar.

These recent orders total almost 2000 units for both sour (NACE) and sweet applications.



KSRS Swirl Sand Removal Systems Orders…

KIRK Process Solutions has recently won several orders for horizontal 3 and 4 phase separator internals in the middle east from various customers, all requiring our KSRS Swirl Sand Removal Systems for the effective fluidisation and suction removal of settled solids in the base of the vessels.  These systems generally require lower flushing water consumption and pressure than equivalent, traditional jetting systems.



New multicyclone projects get underway…

KIRK Process has started engineering design on three projects requiring KMCE multicyclones for mainly solids removal from gas streams.

One is small and very high pressure, with 2 elements and an ID of 200mm; another for 3 vessels operates at medium-high pressure and with 30 to 50+ elements in ID’s of up to 1000mm; the third is low pressure and over 200 elements in an ID of 2000mm. All customers are located in the Asia / Asia-Pacific region.

KIRK’s unique design of low-cost, removable cyclone elements is proving to be an attractive benefit to customers and end users.



High Capacity Mist Removal for North Sea Retrofit

New Axial Cyclone Order Concludes Record Year for KPSL

The recent award for Phase II of a major project in Russia requiring over 3000 KSME Swirltubes (plus other separator internals) comes towards the end of a record year for sales for KIRK Process Solutions.

“KPSL Has managed to hold down our prices this year despite considerable upward pressure on materials costs, so helping us play our part assisting our core customers to secure more business” commented the Chief Executive, Mike Kirk. “In addition we have continued development work on our cyclones and other internals to further improve our competitiveness and technical edge in 2018” he added.

Horizontal Flow Axial Cyclone Projects

 

KIRK Process is undertaking two projects using horizontal flow swirltubes to remove mists from gas streams.  One is a retrofit into a customer’s existing TEG Contactor column located in the North Sea; the other is into a pair of new Filter-Separators on a petrochemical facility.  Space limitations dictated the selection.



KIRK Awarded Internals Contract for 4 Large Gas Separators

KVH-2 Pocketed Vane Mist Eliminator

Following on from a similar project a few years ago, KIRK Process has been awarded a repeat contract for four large, HP gas scrubbers, each fitted with KVID multi-vane inlet diffusers and 4-bank KVH-2 pocketed vane mist eliminators.  The scope includes Russian translation of project documents and drawings as well as the regulatory material passports and GOST approvals.

A customer in Germany has placed an order for several thousand axial cyclones with a mixture of mass transfer and separation duties.  Due to be delivered during May 2017 the project involves multiple scrubber vessels for an end user in Russia.  We are also supplying our KVID Multi-Vane Inlet Diffusers as part of the scope.

A prestigious project was recently awarded to KIRK Process Solutions to supply a KMCE-80 Multi-Cyclone Tube Bundle for offshore Australia.

 

 

 

 

The project uses 175 qty removable cyclones inside a 1.9m diameter gas scrubber vessel.  As part of the project KPSL undertook a CFD study of the cyclone performance as well as the FEA design of the seal plates for mechanical integrity.
