Customized solutions for all gas cargo types
At Svanehøj we take pride in being flexible and adapting solutions to specifically suit any challenges that a shipowner or a shipyard may encounter. Our dedicated project team tailors gas pump solutions for all vessel types, from the smallest fully pressurised push barges and dedicated CO2 carriers to the largest fully refrigerated VLGCs. Our pumps can handle any type of gas cargo at all temperatures and gravities without component changes, including LPG, ammonia, ethane, ethylene and LNG.
We offer tailored gas pump solutions for:
- Fully pressurised tankers, cargo at ambient temperature, tank pressure up to 18 bar.
- Semi-refrigerated tankers, cargo liquified by cooling/pressure process down to -104°C.
- Fully refrigerated atmospheric tankers, cargo cooled to saturation temperature (typically -104°C).
- Fully refrigerated LNG carriers and LNG Bunker Barges at (temp).
Unique leakage protection system
Svanehøj’s unique automatic pressurised shaft sealing system is designed for maximum sealing security and protection against leakages. The system features a double mechanical seal and a pressure booster where the sealing oil is put under pressure both by the cargo tank and the spring, thus avoiding any adjustments by the crew. This ensures that the sealing chamber pressure is always higher than the cargo tank pressure for maximum protection against cargo leakages.
