Midstream/Downstream — Processing, Piping and Refining
Due to the volatile and hazardous nature of midstream and downstream oil and gas materials, every pump, compressor, turbine and mixer depends on innovative engineered components to optimize safety and emission containment. John Crane engineers products specific to abrasive conditions, pressure changes, and multi-phase fluid properties to maximize uptime and minimize emissions. If service, repair or refurbishment are ever needed due to planned or unplanned maintenance, we also have over 200 global rapid-response locations ready to dispatch specialized assistance at any time.

Seal Support Systems
PR 52/PR 53A: Reservoir-based seal support systems designed for both API Plan 52 and 53A applications to support unpressurized and pressurized dual seals
PA 53B: Accumulator-based system that uses a bladder to maintain pressure to pressurized dual seals and absorb barrier fluid thermal expansion
PA 53C: Accumulator-based system that uses a piston to maintain pressure to pressurized dual seals and absorb barrier fluid thermal expansion
RU-2/RU-4: Portable units that allow refilling of a seal reservoir or barrier fluid circuit while the system is pressurized and in operation
PL 54/PL 55: Provide a pressurized or unpressurized barrier/buffer fluid to dual seals; preferred where flow and heat removal capacity exceeds that of API Plan 52 or 53
WCH/WCV/K2S: Water-cooled heat exchangers for use where water is readily available
PD 75: Leakage detection and monitoring for dual-unpressurized seal arrangements where the outer seal is dry-running and the leakage can condense
PD 76: Provides detection and monitoring for non-condensing leakage in a dual-unpressurized seal arrangement where the outer seal is dry-running
PD 65A/PD 65B: Used to capture and monitor seal leakage in single-seal applications
PG 72: Provides a clean, regulated gas supply to dual-unpressurized seal arrangements where the containment seal is dry-running
PG 74: Provides a clean, regulated gas supply to API Plan 74 dual-pressurized, non-contacting seal arrangements
