Äager Brand, Ergil Successfully Completed Surge Vessel Fabrication for Socar Petkim Star Refinery


Istanbul, April 21, 2020 – ERGIL completed factory acceptance test for the surge vessel and deliver them successfully to Socar Petkim Star Refinery in Turkey.

ERGIL, with a dedicated and experienced staff, offering high-quality oil, gas, water process equipment manufactured with professionalism, continues to extend its references in surge vessel (water hammer) segment. ERGIL offers a wide range of custom made high and low-pressure vessels for the water, marine, processing of bulk liquids and gases; such as deaerators, absorbers, scrubbers, surge vessels, silencers, filters, process towers and columns along with shell and tube type heat exchangers.

ERGIL has collaborated with SOCAR Turkey Enerji A.S. (SOCAR Turkey), a subsidiary of SOCAR (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic) on a project that includes the designing, fabrication and supplying of stainless steel 16.5 bar surge vessel system with 3 cubic meter capacity with unique design that provides optimum performance thanks to its buthyl bladder. Surge vessel is used for balancing the water pressure in the refinery. It is designed as per ASME Sec. VIII Div.1 and certified according to both PED (2014/68/EU)and ATEX. System vessel is installed with heat tracing and insulated with aluminum cladding in order to avoid freezing or temperature fluctuation.

“We work closely with Tekfen for the primary design, and completed the detailed design in 10 days for the urgency of the project. Equipment itself is crucial for such application in order to avoid any water system failure. We have witnessed major time and economical losses in similar plants that did not implement surge systems. We are proud to supply such a complicated equipment to prestigious client Socar’s Petkim Star Refinery”, says Project Coordinator Kıvanç Çağlar.
