Downhole progressing cavity pump with submersible drive

Thursday, July 12th, 2018 von admin

A German energy supplier had initially used a geological horizon for gas storage, but then decided to extract crude oil from the same deposit. Therefore, a suitable extraction system had to be acquired for transporting the multi-phase mixture with a high gas content to the surface from 1,200 m below. Due to the extreme conditions, a special pump technology was required:

Netzsch developed a progressing cavity pump system with submersible drive. As all moving parts are positioned deep down in the well, there is also no risk of environmental impact from leaks at the surface. (more…)

Hermetic deliver more than 200 pumps to the Middle East

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018 von admin

The Germany based pump manufacturer Hermetic dispatched more than 200 pumps with canned motor drive to the Middle East. The mega scale project includes all pump widths: from the smallest CAM 1 serie to typical oil & gas pumps of the CNP range. All of them are fitted with API 610 (American Petroleum Industry standard) hydraulics and equipped with a maintenance free canned motor. The drive power ranges from 1 kW to more than 100 kW.

The pumps fulfill API 685 standard requirements for sealless pumps, as well as expectations towards safety and reliability.

Hermetically sealed Twin-Screw Pump for chemical and petrochemical sectors

Monday, June 18th, 2018 von admin

ITT Bornemann launched a new hermetically-sealed pump, named SLW, at Achema 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany. This pump serie uses a magnetic coupling for a hermetic pump drive. With the sealed fluid chamber, critical media with harmful substances are confined to the pump and not released into the environment.

  • The design allows the two screws to convey the product and transmit the torque.
  • The single-volute design is also compact and requires a small footprint for installation.
  • The product is lubricated with inboard bearings.
  • The less-wear parts design leads to low-maintenance, resulting in high MTBF.

New 3-Inch AODD pump

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 von admin

At Achema 2018 Aro introduced the new EXP Series three-inch non-metallic, air-operated diaphragm pump for chemical and water processing applications.

These pumps can transfer up to 20,000 liters of fluid in 30 minutes. That equates to a 47 percent increase in flow compared to the Aro two-inch pump, and a flow rate of up to 270 gallons per minute.

Smart pumps and predictive analytics gain traction

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Global Pumps Market in the Oil and Gas Industry, Forecast to 2024, finds that there has been a concentrated focus on operational expenditure (OPEX) in the oil & gas industry following the oil price plunge in 2016. Upstream companies are increasingly acknowledging digitization as an important enabler of cost savings and profitability, and are therefore gravitating toward tools such as smart pumps. Among the many new-generation pumps in the market, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled and energy-efficient pumps with demonstrable return on investment (RoI) are expected to experience the highest demand.

Pump monitoring with Atex certification

Monday, April 23rd, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, Allweiler will exhibit its intelligent condition and operation monitoring system (hall 8.0, booth D63). Known as IN-1000, it is now also available with Atex certification for use in EX zones. IN-1000 was developed specifically for Allweiler pumps that are used in operationally-critical and environmentally-sensitive applications in chemical engineering.

The IN-1000 can be used for a wide range of condition monitoring applications, from simple, single-pump installations to complex, multi-pump systems while improving safety and reducing operating costs simultaneously.

Lewa: Follow-up order of another 20 pumps to Saudi Arabia

Thursday, December 14th, 2017 von admin

Lewa delivered 40 process diaphragm pumps to two large offshore platforms on the Persian Gulf in 2013. Lewa has got now a follow-up order to this 30 Mio Euro order – the largest in the history of Lewa. The follow-up order includes

  • 8 LGB2 Boxer pumps and
  • 12 LDH5 series process pumps

These pumps are used for transferring monoethylene glycol (MEG) from the Tie In Platforms (TP) to the Well Head Platforms (WHP) and on-site MEG injection. This injection is intended to prevent the ice formation in the drill hole that can occur during the formation of methane hydrate. The project will be completed in 2019.

The plant will increase the gas output from 70 million m³ up to 126 million m3 per day.
