Shell Auger Skid A Explosion Proof Freezer Successfully Passes FAT TestingApril 8, 2016
Safe Air Technology is proud to announce that Skid A Explosion Proof Freezer of the Shell Auger Offshore Platform Project has successfully passed Factory Acceptance Testing and Shell Inspection and Testing Protocol. Skid A has been shipped from the Safe Air Technology Manufacturing Facility and is currently being staged for installation and startup on Shell’s Auger Platform.
Auger Skid A consists of two freezer boxes with 100% redundant split explosion proof freezer systems for each box. These split type freezer systems consist of an SAT CULT Series Low Temperature Condensing Unit, an SAT UCXPC Low Temperature Unit Cooler, and all controls necessary for operation of the system.
All equipment on Auger Skid A Explosion Proof Freezer was engineered, manufactured, and certified to be rated for Class I, Division 2, Groups C & D Hazardous Locations as dictated by NFPA 70, National Electric Code, Articles 500-515. Defrosting of the UCXPC Low Temperature Unit Cooler Coils is achieved by using the Division 2 Approved Reverse Cycle Defrost Process. Reverse Cycle Defrost allows for a thorough and efficient defrosting of frozen Unit Cooler Coils in severe duty and hazardous location applications.
Auger Freezer Skid A will serve offshore alongside Auger Freezer Skid B. Auger Freezer Skid B completed manufacturing, testing, and certification in early February 2016. Auger Freezer Skid B is also designed to operate in severe offshore conditions and Class I, Division 2, Group C and D Hazardous Locations. Auger Skid B featured a Low Temperature Freezer Box and a Medium Temperature Refrigeration Box that serves as a thawing unit for the offshore platform.
