Pump Selection 101: Choosing the Right Pump for Your Application

When it comes to pump selection in the Oil & Gas industry, it's essential to choose the right pump for your specific application. Selecting the wrong pump can lead to reduced performance, increased energy consumption, and even damage to the pump or other equipment.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing a pump for your application:

  1. Flow rate - The desired flow rate will determine the size and type of pump required. The flow rate is typically measured in gallons per minute (GPM) or barrels per day (BPD).

  2. Pressure - The required pressure will determine the pump's head and horsepower needed to achieve the desired flow rate.

  3. Viscosity - The viscosity of the fluid being pumped will affect the pump's efficiency and require a specific pump design.

  4. Material compatibility - The material of the pump's components must be compatible with the fluid being pumped to avoid corrosion or contamination.

  5. Pump type - There are various pump types available, such as centrifugal, positive displacement, and vertical turbine, each with its advantages and limitations.
