United States of America Sundyne Ultra-Low NPSHr, High-Flow Pump Finds Midstream Success

Sep. 14, 2016
United States of America

Sundyne, a leader in the design and manufacture of high-engineered centrifugal pumps and integrally geared compressors for use in the global oil and gas production, refining, petrochemical, and chemical industries, announces an early application success for their recently introduced LMV-803Lr ultra-low NPSHr, high-flow pump.

 

A long-time Sundyne customer recently ordered 9 total LMV-803Lr units for installation into product booster service. Once commissioned, they will pump NGL -- Natural Gas Liquids -- from the bottom of the demethanizer to plant battery limits.

 

The LMV-803Lr is an API 610 compliant direct-drive process pump available in either OH3 or OH5 motor mounting configurations, which provides ultra-low NPSHr performance -- less than 10 ft (3 m) across the entire performance range -- for flows to 800 GPM (180 m3 / hr) and heads to 1,000 ft (305 m).

 

This ultra-low NPSHr capability allows the pump to be installed at grade level, eliminating the expense of installation in a pit and the headache performing maintenance in a confined space. The vertical design is ideal for use in refineries, NGL fractionation, petrochemical and chemical plants, as well as light hydrocarbon handling services.

 

The LMV-803Lr ultra-low NPSHr pump is currently on display in the Sundyne booth at the 2016 Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia in Houston, Texas. Visit booth 2219 to learn more.
