Advanced Practical Centrifugal Pump
26th November 2018 - 28th November 2018
Centrifugal pumps are usually used in the Oil and Gas industry to mix and handle oilfield fluids. The rotary motion combined with a shaped pump housing creates centrifugal force to discharge fluids from the pumps. These pumps operate efficiently in high-volume, low-output-pressure conditions. Centrifugal pumps are energy efficient as well as provide high flow rates.
However even if the low cost centrifugal pump does help improve profit margins they should be well maintained and should be used in parts of the transporting process that would maximise its efficiency as they are not as eﬀective when dealing with viscous liquids.
