Centrifugalne črpalke za uporabo v petrokemični industriji ter industriji za predelavo nafte in zemeljskega plina (ISO 13709:2009)

Ta mednarodni standard opredeljuje zahteve za centrifugalne črpalke, vključno s črpalkami, ki tečejo vzvratno kot hidravlične turbine za rekuperacijo moči, za uporabo v procesnih storitvah v petrokemični industriji ter industriji za predelavo nafte in zemeljskega plina. Ta mednarodni standard se uporablja za previsne črpalke, črpalke med ležaji in vertikalno viseče črpalke (glej Tabelo 1). Klavzula 9 predpisuje zahteve, ki veljajo za posebne vrste črpalk. Vse ostale klavzule tega mednarodnega standarda veljajo za vse vrste črpalk. Podane so ilustracije različnih posebnih vrst črpalk in oznake, dodeljene vsaki posebni vrsti. Operativne izkušnje na tem področju kažejo, da so črpalke, proizvedene v skladu s tem mednarodnim standardom, stroškovno učinkovite pri črpanju tekočin v pogojih, ki presegajo kateregakoli od sledečih: . praznilni tlak (merilnik) 1.900 kPa (275 psi; 19,0 bar), sesalni tlak (merilnik) 500 kPa (75 psi; 5,0 bar), . temperatura črpanja 150°C (300 °F), vrtilna hitrost 3.600 r/min; . ocenjena celotna glava 120 m (400 ft), . premer impelerja, previsne črpalke 330 mm (13 palcev).

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 13709 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 115, Pumps, Subcommittee SC 3, Installation and

special application, in collaboration with Technical Committee ISO/TC 67, Materials, equipment and offshore

structures for petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries, SC 6, Processing equipment and systems.

Introduction

It is necessary that users of this International Standard be aware that further or differing requirements can be

needed for individual applications. This International Standard is not intended to inhibit a vendor from offering,

or the purchaser from accepting, alternative equipment or engineering solutions for the individual application.

This can be particularly appropriate where there is innovative or developing technology. Where an alternative

is offered, it is necessary that the vendor identify any variations from this International Standard and provide

details.

A bullet ( ) at the beginning of a clause or subclause indicates that either a decision is required or the

purchaser is required to provide further information. It is necessary that this information should be indicated on

data sheets or stated in the enquiry or purchase order (see examples in Annex N).

In this International Standard, where practical, US Customary, or other, units are included in parentheses for

information.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 13709:2009(E)
Centrifugal pumps for petroleum, petrochemical and natural
gas industries
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies requirements for centrifugal pumps, including pumps running in reverse

as hydraulic power recovery turbines, for use in petroleum, petrochemical and gas industry process services.

This International Standard is applicable to overhung pumps, between-bearings pumps and vertically

suspended pumps (see Table 1). Clause 9 provides requirements applicable to specific types of pump. All

other clauses of this International Standard are applicable to all pump types. Illustrations are provided of the

various specific pump types and the designations assigned to each specific type.

Relevant industry operating experience suggests pumps produced to this International Standard are cost

effective when pumping liquids at conditions exceeding any one of the following:
. discharge pressure (gauge) 1 900 kPa (275 psi; 19,0 bar)
. suction pressure (gauge) 500 kPa (75 psi; 5,0 bar)
. pumping temperature 150 °C (300 °F)
. rotative speed 3 600 r/min
. rated total head 120 m (400 ft)
. impeller diameter, overhung pumps 330 mm (13 in)

NOTE For sealless pumps, reference can be made to API Std 685. For heavy duty pump applications in industries

other than petroleum, petrochemical and gas processing, reference can be made to ISO 9905.
