PumpWorks 610 Introduces the API 610 Vertical Process Pump Model PWI-BB
PumpWorks 610 recently added the API 610 Vertical Process Pump Model PWI-BB OH3 to their extensive product list. The PWI-BB is a heavy duty bearing bracketed vertical in-line product pump. Applications include a wide range of services found in petroleum processing facilities, gas processing, petrochemical, offshore installations, hydrocarbon and crude oil terminal and aviation fueling.
Like the PumpWorks 610 Vertical Process Pump Model PWI OH4, the OH3 model has a vertical, compact and in-line design which eliminates the need for expensive base plates and saves space where floor is limited. Additionally, the PWI-BB model absorbs pump thrust through the pump bearings rather than depending on motor bearings, and so is able to assist in more rugged applications.
The PWI-BB Pump includes several other notable features such as:
- Angular contact thrust bearings, which absorb thrust loads and exceed the API 610 life criteria of 25,000 hours
- Scroll pumping ring, which moves oil from the high capacity oil sump to the upper thrust bearings
- Fan cooling and finned hose, which ensures adequate heat dissipation at all speeds and a Viton Flinger, which maximizes oil coiling
The PWI-BB OH3 is a diverse pump which can be used in several specific applications, including:
- Refinery Process Services
- Off-site Hydrocarbon
- Tank Transfer
- Fuel Oil
- Crude Oil
- Rail Car Loading
The standard lead time for the PWI-BB OH3 pump is 16 weeks for API 610 material classes S-6, S-8 and C-6.
