Third Generation SMP Cryogenic Pump Upgrade Program Announced by Atlas Copco

Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps introduced a successful pump upgrade program to its customers in September, featuring the only 3rd generation SMP cryogenic pump for LNG in the industry.

Costa Mesa, CA, October 12, 2011 --( Featuring the only 3rd generation SMP cryogenic pump for LNG in the industry, the Atlas Copco JC Carter Pump design offers customers significant advantages over previous designs. The new pumps have improved Mean Time Between Overhaul (MTBO), the highest proven efficiency, and the best proven Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) values in the industry.

With more than six decades of experience in the industry, Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps is a recognized leader and innovator of cryogenic SMP pump technology.

“We are pleased with the success of this program and are glad to provide our customers pumps that are easier to maintain and help improve overall reliability,” says Dirk Jan Rott, Integration Manager for the Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps branch office. “The program offers customers improved efficiency and increased output, which ultimately results in higher plant revenues.”

Utilizing 21st century aerospace engineering technology, all Atlas Copco JC Carter pumps are built to meet rigid quality and best-in-class standards. The smaller, more efficient designs require less energy, which reduces plant CO2 and CO emissions. Atlas Copco JC Carter pumps are more cost-effective and produce less boil-off gas.
