Stopson Italiana delivered 172 Vent Silencers for 4 different sections in a Bahrain based Refinery

A full-package solution aimed at obtaining total sound insulation towards different target parts in an Oil Refinery in Bahrain, which has recently undergone an ambitious modernization program.

 

The project

Stopson Italiana has successfully concluded the delivery of 172 Vent Silencers to be installed among 4 different structural parts of the Oil Refinery in question. The project assists the expansion program that has been taking place since 2018, and it is expected to reach completion prior to the end of 2022.

The Refinery is situated on the island of Sitra, southwest of the capital city Manaba, and produces about 260,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil and 40,000 bpd of low sulfur diesel.

 

The Supply

The project has been carried out according to the following distribution:

  • n. 2 HP Export Steam Silencers;
  • n. 60 PSIG Steam Vent Silencers;
  • n. 110 PSIG Steam Vent Silencers via a second delivery.

And will cover the following areas: 

  • Safety Systems;
  • Boilers;
  • Blow Out and Clean up;
  • Ventilation Systems.

Most of the Silencers have been provided with a removable internal absorptive pack for easy maintenance and clean-up and a removable rain hood. They are all designed to reach a noise target of 82 dB(A) @ 1 m from the silencer.

 

What is a Vent Silencer

A Vent Silencer is a soundproofing device aimed at eradicating the adverse noises produced by gas or steam flow while piping into the atmosphere. The noise in question can be generated as a result of the high-velocity flow through the valve and/or a turbulence created around any impedance in the line that may cause restriction or simply change the flow’s direction.

Each Vent Silencer is able to provide an overall attenuation of the noise level to the required sound pressure level criteria at a certain distance from the silencer. 

At the same time, noise reduction can be attained both using a reactive section to attenuate the low frequencies and absorption mean of the high frequency, normally using a sound-absorbing material.

Stopson Italiana engineers its Vent Silencers in Italy, using special materials not only in accordance with all quality standards but also in line with the client’s specific needs thanks to a careful customer management process.

Stopson Italiana supplied 21 vent silencers for PSV and start-up valves as well as for atmospheric blow-down tank to Agios Nikolaos power plant in Greece

A soundproofing comprehensive installation has been recently delivered to assist 826 MW Power Plant (CCGT) at Agios Nikolaos, Greece.

 

Introduction

With a 9HA.02 gas turbine, a steam turbine, and a 109FB turbo generator, the Agios Nikolaos power plant is one of the biggest and most efficient combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plants in Europe. In these types of power stations, several technological methods are employed to control combustion processes. Among these, the traditional usage of boilers and HRSG, which are commonly likely to damage surrounding and inner environments via harmful noise exposition. In fact, safety valves, start-up valves, blow down and flash tank have the tendency to create a very high noise level while discharging into the atmosphere.

Stopson Italiana has designed a specified soundproofing technique in order to provide a high degree of noise abatement. The equipment is silenced through the implementation of separated and well sized silencers, which tackle the source of noise directly in three different operational parts: the pressure safety valve (PSV), the start-up valve, and the atmospheric blow-down tank.

 

The Supply in details – technical specifications and characteristics

In details, the total supply has been designed in line with the following configuration:

  • 16 vent silencers were designed for PSV, with flow rates ranging from 30 t/h to 300 t/h, temperatures up to 584°C and noise target of 115 dB(A) @ 1 m.
  • 4 vent silencers designed for start-up valve with flow rates ranging from 6 to 260 t/h, temperatures up to 504°C and noise target of 100 dB(A) @ 1 m.
  • 1 vent silencer applied to the atmospheric blow-down tank, performing flow rate 39 t/h, temp. up to 105 °C, 80 dB(A) @ 1m.

 

Stopson Italiana Vent Silencers

  • Safety Valve (PSV)
  • Relief valve (PRV)
  • Control valve
  • Ejector
  • Startup valve
  • Snort-valve
  • Flash and Blowdown Tanks

Stopson Italiana Vent Silencers to soundproof OMSK Oil refinery plant in Russia

No. 3 Vent Silencers supplied to one of Russia’s most modern refineries.

OMSK Refinery – Russia: With an installed capacity of 22.23 million tonnes of oil per year, the Omsk Refinery processed 21 million tonnes in 2018, maintaining its leading position in Russia by refining volumes. The Omsk Refinery also leads the industry in terms of key performance indicators in production efficiency, with its light product yield reaching 71.04 percent in 2019, and refining depth 90.89 percent.

The Omsk refinery in Russia has been undergoing full-scale modernization since 2008 including an upgrade to producing fuels meeting Euro 5 standard in phase one of the modernization program that was completed in 2015. Scheduled for deployment within 2021, the phase two project is aimed at increasing the refining depth to 97% and boosting the light petroleum products yield to 80%.

The various technological processes used at the Omsk Refinery are among the most advanced available in refining today, and they needed to be paired with the best soundproofing products to keep performance and ensure noise reduction.

 

The project – which has been recently delivered – includes the supply of N°3 Vent Silencers featuring the following characteristics:

  • 1 V.S. – 750 kg, Flow rate 12 t/h, Temp. up to 538 °C
  • 2 V.S. – 2375 kg, Flow rates 30,9 t/h, Temp. up to 300 °C

Vent silencers are capable to achieve a global noise attenuation up to 70 dB, depending on the

cases, with a target result of 76 and 78 dB(A) @ 1 meter from the equipment.

Welding processes and qualifications as well as all materials involved are certified for low-temperature environmental conditions in order to withstand a minimum design temperature equal to -37°C for pressure parts and -42°C for atmospheric components.

Moreover, due to the rigid climate with a minimum ambient temperature of -49°C, all silencers are equipped with an Anti-freezing Steam System that increased the complexity of the design due to various flange connections to accommodate the coils system on a limited surface along with all required accessories for external insulation, lifting and supporting systems.


Stopson Italiana Vent Silencers

Stopson Italiana has a wide range of products for Refinery applications, including Air Filtration, Duct Silencers, Acoustic Enclosures and Barriers, In-Line Silencers, and Steam Vent Silencers.
