Manufacturing & Commissioning of a Horizontal ANSI B73.1 End Suction Centrifugal Pump for the Oil Industry

Horizontal ANSI B73.1 End Suction Centrifugal Pump

Customer in service of the oil industry is integral to Smart Turner Pumps Inc and can be exemplified through the manufacturing, start up, and after market support of this horizontal ANSI B73.1 end suction centrifugal pump used to pump bio oil. In house quality control, attention to expediting requirements, on-site commissioning inclusive of startup supervision, and effective warranty guarantees are just some of the assurances that we are able to provide our end users. As per the drawings and customer specifications, we designed the pump to handle the bio oil at 65°C, with a viscosity of 8.5 cP, achieving a 300 M3/hr flow rate with a 27.5 M head.

To suit the installation application, Smart Turner Pumps supplied a group three bearing frame, oil lubed sealed with Inpro bearing isolators. For the mechanical seals, we chose a double cartridge seal with an integrated pumping ring, and an API plan 53A external pressurized tank configuration. We drew on our expertise with a number of metals in constructing the pump, including 316 stainless steel for the pump casing and shaft, and cast iron for the bearing housing. Combined, an effective and high caliber pump was provided on time and to exact specifications for the environment stipulated.
