Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I want a pump that can pump up to 5,000 psi ( 3,490 kpa) at 2 bbls per minute (320 litres).
A: This would require approximately 270 HP, and after a few more questions it is clarified that what they really mean is that they want to pump up to a maximum of 5,000 psi, but at a low rate. The maximum rate required is 2 bbls/min, but a pressure rate of only 1,000 psi. The horsepower now required is approximately 70 HP which results in a much smaller and less expensive pump required.
Q: What temperature can you heat to?
A: This can vary. Our heaters are designed for a maximum of 120 C (250 F) however most oil companies now restrict temperatures to a maximum of 80 to 100 C (175-210 F). Another factor is the viscosity and flashpoint of the fluid.
