Removing samples from gasoline and oil pipelines for content analysis for safety and preview of crude prior to processing
How It’s Used
Extracting pipeline content through a bypass loop for sample isolation
High system pressures and abrasion resistance
Pipeline Sampling Equipment
Gasoline and oil
11 to 19 L/min (180 to 300 USG/hr)
<1500 psi (<103 bar)
Pipeline sampling enables monitoring of pipeline flow content for safety reasons as well as previewing crude oil content prior to arrival at the processing plant.
The sampled fluids are usually either oil or gasoline, at ambient temperature. Pipeline pressures can be as high as 1500 psi (103 bar). Pump differential pressure is low, and flow rate must be accurate to achieve proper sampling.
Gear pump extracts samples from a pipeline for automatic analysis.
FLOW RATE: 11 to 19 L/min (180 to 300 USG/hr)
We have variable speed pumps with flows from 1.74 to 26.6L/min (27.6 to 421 USG/hr)
MAX SYSTEM PRESSURE: 1500 psi (103 bar)
Our pumps operate up to 1500 psi (103 bar) max system pressure
ABRASION RESISTANCE FOR GRITTY CRUDE OILS
Our construction materials maintain long life in abrasive environments
CONTROLLED, PULSELESS FLOW
We offer positive displacement gear pumps for precise, pulseless flow for sample extraction
Our magnetic drives eliminate dynamic shaft seals, keeping the oil and gas securely inside the pump and potential contaminants out
We offer Service Kits for easy field serviceability
