Extremely high pressure pumps for producing fertilizer

Urea

Chemical producers manufacture urea for use as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. It is produced from synthetic ammonia and carbon dioxide. As large quantities of carbon dioxide are produced during the ammonia manufacturing process as a byproduct from hydrocarbons (predominantly natural gas), or occasionally from coal, urea production plants are almost always located adjacent to the site where the ammonia is manufactured. The urea production process requires extremely high pressure to make pellets from the very viscous liquids.

Multi-stage Integrally Geared Pumps

Sundyne API 610 heavy duty integrally geared driven pumps are engineered for critical extremely high-head services required for processing urea. Sundyne’s unique integrally gear driven pump design offers the ability to optimize efficiency, curve shape, NPSH, runout horsepower and radial loading to provide economical, reliable operation through various combinations of impeller, diffuser, and inducer geometry.
