4.0 EVALVATION OF THE PURGING RESULT.

4.1 Cargo leakage.

Cargo in the cofferdam can come from shaft seals, flange face seals in pipestack/pumphead or
damage (cracks)-on the pipestack/pumphead.
A small leakage rate over the shaft seals up to about 0.5 lIday during pump operation is
nonnal, and replacement of seals should not be necessary with this leakage rate. For short
periods of time, higher leakage peaks can occur. The leakage rate is also depending on the
type of cargo. Some cargoes like naphtha, condensate etc. penetrate the shaft seals more easily
than lub. oils, vegetable oils and other viscous cargoes.
If the leakage rate is up to about 2 litres/day, the pump must be purged a couple of times daily,
and inspected as soon as possible to find the reason for the leakage.
Intensify the purging if the leakage rate is increasing above acceptable level. If this is not "-"
keeping the leakage under control, do not operate the pump; use theportable pump to
discharge the cargo.

The development of a cargo leakage can be followed if purging is done according to specified
intervals. Thereby maintenance work can be planned, and unexpected shut down due to
leakage can be avoided.

4.2 Hydraulic oil leakage.

Hydraulic oil in the cofferdam can come from shaft seals, flange face seals in pipestack/
pumphead or damage (cracks) on the pipestack/pumphead.
A small leakage rate into the cofferdam up to about 10 ml/h (0.25 l/day) from the mechanical
oil seal or lip seal during pump operation is normal. For short periods of time, higher leakage
peaks can occur.
If the leakage rate is increasing above acceptable level, the pump must be purged a couple of '-../
times daily, and inspected as soon as possible to find the reason for the leakage.
Intensify the purging if the leakage rate is increasing above acceptable level. If this is not
keeping the leakage under control, close the hydraulic service valve. Do not operate the pump,
use the portable pump to discharge the cargo.

6.0 PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN WHEN HANDLING SPECIAL TYPES OF CARGO

The main rule is to have the cofferdam clean, dry and vented to atmosphere through the exhaust
trap vent line, in order to avoid any leakage's.
However, when handling certain groups of cargoes it may be an advantage to fill the cofferdam
with liquid to improve the seal life time and to avoid cargo blocking the cofferdam.
The list below gives recommended type of liquid in the cofferdam for some groups of cargoes.
This is a general advice, as the ship crew have to learn by experience which type of liquid gives
the best result for the great number of different types of cargoes.

To fill liquid in the cofferdam, disconnect the


' '"
exhaust trap piping from the pump top plate. Using a
suitable adapter, fill the liquid through the cofferdam
check pipe. Open the snap-on coupling on the
purging valve block to ventilate the cofferdam
during filling. (Connect a open female coupling or
similar.)

Valve for regulation A circulation of liquid through the cofferdam can be


~
arranged in the following way:
-Connect liquid supply to the snap-on coupling on
the purging valve block. The supply line must also
be equipped with a valve to regulate the liquid flow.
-Open drain valve on the exhaust trap, and collect
the return liquid here.
'-"

Acid cargoes
After discharging and purging is finished, it can be an advantage to circulate fresh water
through the cofferdam to remove all residue after a leakage.

Polvmerising cargoes. (TDL MDI)


Fill cofferdam with 5-10 litres of DOP to avoid blocking of cofferdam.

Crystallizing cargoes.
Fill cofferdam with 5-10 litres of fresh water. The cofferdam may also be filled completely
and arranged with a small water circulation

"-'"

PhenoL caustic etc.


A circulation of hot water through the cofferdam can avoid clogging. (But remember some of
these types of cargoes are very dangerous, poisonous).

Heated oil products (fuel oiL crude oil)


Fill cofferdam with approx. 5-10 litre of diesel oil/'vvhitespirit to keep any leakage into
cofferdam in liquid form. This is especially important after stripping and during tank cleaning.

NOTE
When filling liquid in the cofferdam, it is important that the hydraulic oil return pressure
always is higher than the pressure will be in the liquid filled cofferdam. This is especially
important on hydraulic systems with non-pressurised return line, as the pressure difference
between the return line and the cofferdam will be negative if the cofferdam is filled with to
much liquid. . '-"

BEFORE STARTINGDISMANTLINGOF THECARGO PUMP

Ifthe purging routine has detected a cargo leakage (more than 2 I / day *), and the
evaluation indicates that action must be taken, firstthing you have to do is to identifythe
leakage. The best way is to pressure test the pump's cofferdam.

Never start any dismantling of the cargo pump before you know: if,
what, and where, you have a problem.

PRESSURETESTOF THE CARGO PUMP'S COFFERDAM


,-
J
CARGO LEAKAGE
If a cargo leakage is detected the complete cargo pump's cofferdam has to be pressure
tested to identify the leak. We have learned from FRAMO on board training that crew on
some ships start to automatically change the pump's cargo seal as soon as there is a
cargo leakage - although the leak may be somewhere else. This is waste of time and
money. So always identify where you have a leak first!

The cofferdam can be pressure tested by blinding off the purging medium reliefvalve by
means of a rubber gasket. Dismantlethe cofferdams's riser pipe flange on the top cover
plate and installa test flange with pressure gauge (see figure 1). Connect the purging
mediumto the test flange and increase the pressure to 3 bar.

Afterapproximately 5 minutescheck all flanges around cargo seal, riser pipe, and all
other connectionsfor possible leakage. Use soapy water for better detecting of the
possible leakage. /

Note:Ifthe cargo leakage is not possible to identify, and the 3 bar pressure is stabilized
for a long period of time during the pressure testing, - it is still possible that the
cargo seal in the pump is worn out, and have to be changed. The reason could
be that the 3 bar pressure in the cofferdam is pressing the upper lip (facing the
cofferdam) around the pump shaft. Dismantle the cargo seal for control.

Ifthis is not the case, and the cargo leakage is not possible to detect, you have to split the
cargo pump, and pressure test the main components separately.

~
* See Service Bulletin no. 13.
PRECAUTIONSTO BE TAKEN BEFORE THE SERVICEJOB IS FINISHED

. After the leakage has been identified and repaired, and the repaired part has
been pressure tested, the cargo pump can be reassembled.
Remembe(, cleanliness is absolutely necessary.

. When the mounting is completed, pressure test the complete cofferdam with max.
3 bar pressure as described earlier.

. After minimum 5 min. check all flanges, cargo seal and other critical points with
soapy water for possible leakage.

. Leave the 3 bar pressure in the pumps cofferdam for at least 30 min., and check
that the pressure is stable.

. Necessary time for control must be included in the total scope of work, even if
time schedule is limited.

. Fill the pumphead and pipe stack with hydro oil by opening
the ball valve on the pressure line on deck. )
Open the venting plug on the non return valve on the return
pipe on deck.

. Keep the venting plug open and start the cargo pump
carefully for test running.

. Close the venting plug when clean airfree oil is coming out.

HYDRAULIC OIL LEAK

Ifthe cargo pump has a hydraulic oil leak you normally have to split the pump to identify
the leak. A hydraulic oil leak is very rare under normal conditions, but if a hydraulic oil
leak does occur, there could be three reasons:

a) Hydraulic oil seal - the life time is normally very high (> 10.000 running hours).

b) Crack in pipe stack - can occur if the cargo pump is vibrating heavily for some
abnormal reasons.

c) Corrosion attack in seal rings grooves can occur after long service.

SUBJECT:FRAMO SINGLE AND DOUBLE CARGO SEALS

Statistics.show that these seals are changed mostlywith the same service
intervals, and we recommend that these seals are changed at the same time,
based on following reasons:

- Main part of the iob is to open the pump.

- The remaining lifetime of the single cargo seal is


limited when the double seal is worn out.

- From the purging, only the condition of the double


cargo seal will be shown. The condition of the single
cargo seal can only be evaluated after dismantling. '-..J

By delivering these seals as a set, stock keeping on board will be easier, as it


will be easier to identify for how many pumps you have seals in stock. One
package will also take less space, and this new package is made of an envi-
ronmentfriendlymaterial.

The ID numbers for the various sets are:

Total Pump Service I
The shaft seal is one of the most critical parts of a pump.
To ensure a long lifetime of the seal it is important to have a detailed knowledge of the pump design, the liquid handled
and the seal system. The mechanical seal is also in many cases the part that limits the Mean Time Between Failures for
the pump. By performing all the activities in our Maintenance Facilities, a complete failure analysis and a total pump
repair can now be offered to our Coustomers at reduced Turn Around Time. This will also ensure the best Quality of the
job. If the duty or other operational circumstances makes it necessary to upgrade the seal arrangement, our Engineering
Service group will evaluate all consequences, and the best solution proposed to our Customers.

.
Seal design and upgrade
A successful new, or upgraded seal design requires total
knowledge of the system in which the seal is an integrated

. part.
Our engineers have many years of experience from pump
and seal design, including troubleshooting and testing of
J
. seal system for offshore- and marine applications.
Experienced technical assistance in selection of seals and
application studies is available.

.
Availability
Pump downtime can be greatly reduced if spare seals are

. available when required.


For most FRAMO pumps new seals, or reconditioned

. Exchange Units are available.


The exchange program can be further developed
in agreement with our customers.

.
Reconditioning
In our dedicated Mechanical Seal Shop most types of seals
can be repaired or totally reconditioned, regardless of
J

. material quality or seat configuration.


Depending on condition, reconditioning is carried out at
three levels:
A) Re-Iapping of both sealing surfaces + renewal of
elastomers, springs and fasteners.
B) As A + renewal of stationary seat.

. q A + B + shrink in new seat material.


Lapping can be done to Plane, Concave or Convex

. configuration.
The shop contains a full range of modern equipment and

. tools, operated by highly qualified personnel.


All activities in the shop are subject to thorough Quality

. Control in accordance with relevant ISOstandards.


Tools and equipment are surveyed and calibrated in .--.

. accordance with procedures and standards.

Dear Customer!

In this Service Bulletin we will draw your attention to the Local Control Valves ~
and Ball Valves for the cargo pumps. By correct operation and maintenance of ~
these valves the life time will be increased and your costs reduced.

Local control valves:

All cargo pumps have a local control valve. There are different designs
depending upon generation.

-
"

The main purpose of the local control valve is:

Control the cargo pump during stripping of the cargo tank.


Stepless capacity control locally from deck, if required.

During stripping it is important to control the pumps from deck.


The benefits of this are:

Improved stripping result.


Reduced wear and tear.
Better observation of fluctuation in hydraulic pressure.
Better observation of pump's vibration.
Immediate stop of cargo pumps upon completion of stripping. ~

Regular operation of the local control valves will ensure properly ~


functioning valves.

Special tool:

To improve the operation of today's generation local control valves on cargo


pumps equipped with the stainless steel Speed Torque Control valve (STC), a
special tool is available.

Tool

Note: The valves must be


operated by hand force only!
,-,
~
Ball valves:
'" In all Framo Cargo Pumping Systems designed after 1983, the ball valve on
the hydraulic inlet line to each cargo pump shall always be in open position
(even whe~ the cargo pump is not in operation). The same applies to systems
designed before 1983, whichl1ave been upgraded with pressurised return line
(overpressure system). This to ensure the safety of having a pressurised hydraulic
return side with a higher pressure than the static cargo pressure.

Also on older ships built before 1983, we recommend to keep the ball valves
open. This to avoid opening the valves with high hydraulic inlet pressure.
Operating the valves with high inlet pressure will reduce the valve's lifetime.

To avoid sticking we recommend to move all ball valves on deck quarterly,


when the main hydraulic system is not in use.

..

Ball valve

Mild steel valves are delivered with primer only. During replacement a proper
coating must be applied to the valves, and a corrosion protection must be
~ maintained.

To increase the lifetime of these valves and reduce the costs:


- Use them
- Move them
- Paint them

If you need any further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to


contact any of the worldwide FRAMO offices.
