Marathon Petroleum – Oil Refinery Process Wastewater

Project Assets

Project Description

The Marathon Petroleum Refinery in Robinson, IL needed this new industrial process water pump station to handle its medium flows of highly acidic water combined with standard wastewater. A precast concrete sump included an interior Tnemec coating to withstand the water chemistry from a refinery testing lab. 11 hp Goulds grinder pumps were designed in a duplex configuration and included a factory epoxy coating to withstand the water chemistry. The pump station piping was designed with stainless steel components, and corrosion resistant floats were included as the liquid level sensing devices.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities

PEDCO, the site engineer, contacted Romtec Utilities to assist on the design of this industrial process and wastewater pump station with stringent design requirements. In addition to combining acidic process water with standard wastewater, the pump station needed to be completed with a cost-effective design. PEDCO used the Romtec Utilities designs to put the project out to bid and Romtec Utilities quoted the bidders with Freitag-Weinhardt, Inc. winning the installation. Romtec Utilities was able to help Freitag-Weinhardt win the bid for this complicated specification though our expertise and their understanding. Skanska, the project procurement and control company, understood the value of the Romtec Utilities package and approved the pump station aspect of the project.
