ITT Showcases New Products to Fuel Offshore Production, Profits


    May 4, 2009, Houston, TX – Visitors to OTC 2009 will see new API compliant pumps, watermaking systems, and engineering capabilities from ITT to make offshore oil and gas production more efficient and cost effective.  
    Products and services being featured in the ITT booth (#5255) include:
    • Goulds Model 3610 (BB1) pump, a between-bearing, double suction process pump that is fully compliant with API 610/ISO 13709 10th Edition standards. OTC is the first public demonstration of the 3610 pump, which is now available for shipping.
    • The new C’treat ROUSTABOUTTM, a turnkey, off-the-shelf Reverse Osmosis Watermaker system, designed specifically for offshore oil applications, with many of the features requested most often by users of ITT’s custom-designed desalination systems.
    • ITT PRO Services Upgrades Engineering, a specialized group of engineers dedicated to pump modifications to improve reliability, extend equipment life, and bring pumps back into code.
    • ITT Plant Performance Services, a range of expert analysis and implementation support services to reduce total cost of ownership and improve efficiency of pump operations.
    Editors: See separate releases on these products and services in the ITT news kit for OTC.
    Hundreds of different ITT products are used today by thousands of customers in the worldwide oil and gas industry, supporting every step in the process – from desalination systems on offshore rigs, to submersible mixers on offshore vessels, to pump systems used to refine and transport petroleum.
    Products being showcased at OTC 2009 are marketed under many product brands familiar to the O&G industry such as Goulds, Flygt, Fabri-Valve®, and C’Treat. They give engineers thousands of options for size, power and manufacturing materials to meet a specific pumping need or valve application. All of these different products share three characteristics in common.
    • They are engineered for low total costs of ownership, helping customers to improve oil and gas productivity and lower operational costs.
    • They offer high reliability and durability, made from high-quality materials and manufactured to exacting standards that distinguish ITT brands from competing products.
    • They are backed by a global network of ITT support centers and distributors that make maintenance and service available 24/7/365 – on competing products as well as ITT’s own.
    ITT also maintains a commitment to environmental safety. The organization is a member of API 610 and participates on API committees to actively address the industry’s drive for increased safety and emissions containment.
    “Many of our customers are familiar with a specific brand but they don’t realize the comprehensive value that ITT can bring to their business,” said Chad Tuttle, director, Oil & Gas Marketing. “We have worked with energy producers for more than 150 years and can bring a huge breadth of expertise to the processing and production needs of our oil and gas customers.”
