Work at various nuclear power plants and oil and gas refineries shows considerations that determine equipment for each application.
These devices have been deployed on almost every major offshore platform in the Gulf of Mexico over the last 15-plus years.
Although the traditional application is as a bearing surface, the technology is suitable for a seal face surface in pumps.
The flow-rate, viscosity and efficiency advantages of screw pumps make them a viable alternative to centrifugal pumps.
The phenomenon occurs when a system experiences extreme vibration caused by excessive pump pressure and pulsation.
These systems must stand up to extreme pressures, destructive process chemicals and marine environments.
This technology assists with preventing costly equipment failures while increasing production reliability and personnel safety.
The technology offers a lower cost of ownership, reduced maintenance needs and a longer service life than some conventional plunger pumps.
Remote monitoring software prevents damage and downtime related to sealing problems.
