Celeros Flow Technology injects new life into forty year old SAGD pump to extend heavy oil manufacturing for buyer

Celeros Flow Technology has injected new life into a heritage pump for a Canadian heavy oil restoration customer, enabling them to extend manufacturing. The pump – a Mather & Platt BB5 – was more than 40 years old and had been topic to quite a few post-installation alterations.
Heavy oil deposits are extremely viscous and require the injection of excessive pressure, excessive temperature steam to improve fluidity and permit the oil to be pumped to the floor. In order to boost extraction on this venture, the client wanted to increase water temperatures from 90° C to 140° C. However, there have been issues that the prevailing pump could not be able to deliver this requirement. Nozzle hundreds were a particular concern. They turned to Celeros Flow Technology brand ClydeUnion Pumps, their most well-liked provider of some 20 years, for help.

เกจวัดแรงดันไทวัสดุ overhauled the SAGD pump and performed a mechanical seal improve and Plan 23 seal flush to optimize pump efficiency. In addition, finite factor analysis was undertaken to substantiate that the nozzle masses would face up to the specified temperature increase. As a outcome, the pump is now able to delivering steam on the higher temperatures required. The seal upgrades guarantee it meets the most recent specifications.
Concludes Mike Golds: “We are really happy with the result of the SAGD pump upgrade. It has not only achieved the specified manufacturing enhance for the client, but additionally provided a extra sustainable and cost-effective solution than whole pump replacement.
