Occidental Petroleum at Elk Hills, Inc. – Industrial Water Reuse
This package pump station was configured to meet the medium flow requirements for this clean, blow down water from a power generating heat recovery steam generator. The system has a large precast-concrete rectangular sump with a barrier wall –or weir wall- to reduce turbulence from the blow down process for the pumps. The vertical turbine pumps in a duplex configuration pump the water through a heat recovery system and generator and back for reuse. The pumps were configured to handle high temperatures from the inflows of water. Advanced radar controls were supplied for liquid level sensing.
