Sundyne, a designer and manufacturer of highly engineered centrifugal pumps and integrally geared compressors for use in the global oil and gas production, refining, petrochemical, and chemical industries, has announced an early application success for its recently introduced LMV-803Lr ultra low NPSHr, high flow pump.
A long time Sundyne customer recently ordered nine total LMV-803Lr units for installation into product booster service. Once commissioned, they will pump natural gas liquids (NGLs) from the bottom of the demethaniser to plant battery limits.
The LMV-803Lr is an API 610 compliant direct-drive process pump available in either OH3 or OH5 motor mounting configuration that provides ultra low NPSHr performance – less than 10 ft (2 m), across the entire performance range – for flows to 800 GPM (180 m3/hr) and heads to 1000 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 performing maintenance in a confined space. The vertical design is ideal for use in refineries, NGL fractionation, petrochemical and chemical plants, and light hydrocarbon handling services.
