Application: Pumping polymer from a mixing station to injection wells to pressurize oil information
An oil and gas field was using a progressive cavity pump to send a polymer mixture downhole where high-pressure pumps ensure that the crude oil flows properly to the surface. The progressive cavity pump had constant service issues and became expensive to maintain, so it was replaced by a Hydra-Cell G66.
Since installation a year ago, the Hydra-Cell G66 has performed flawlessly, eliminating service issues and lowering maintenance costs. It uses a variable speed drive that allows one Hydra-Cell pump to feed the polymer to multiple high-pressure pumps, including Hydra-Cell G15 and G35 models.
Hydra-Cell’s rugged construction, seal-less design, and ability to provide low-shear pumping at different viscosities proved an excellent choice for this variable-flow, low-pressure application.
