Crude oil pipeline - onshore flat terrain

Powering your flow across continents at low cost

Power cost is the largest operating cost for crude oil pipelines on flat terrain. Flow rate, viscosity, pipe size, and station spacing all affect pump selection. 2 or 3 mainline pumps are often run in series. Sulzer can help with FEED assistance, or, rerates to optimize performance and lower power costs.

Pipeline - flat terrain

Products

  • GSG diffuser style barrel pump
    The GSG pump is the least costly form of ISO 13709 / API 610 Type BB5 high-pressure barrel pumps. The GSG back-to-back rotor stack is supplied on low- density services where rotor stability is critical.

  • HPDM axially split volute casing pump
    HPDM axially split volute pumps are tailor-made and are extensively used to transport large volumes of liquid over long distances and high geodetic heights as in water and oil pipelines. They are available in single stage or various multistage configurations with single- or double suction impellers.

  • HSB axially split single stage between bearing pump
    The HSB API 610 (ISO 13709) Type BB1 is an axially split, single stage, horizontal, between bearing pump. Many HSB pumps are in service on crude oil pipelines in many parts of the world. Its robust casing and custom hydraulics are specifically designed to meet project requirements.

  • MSD axially split multistage pump
    The MSD pump has the broadest hydraulic coverage of any BB3 type multistage pump in the market. There are over 10 000 MSD pumps installed in product pipelines, boiler feed, water injection and even nuclear safety-related services around the globe.

  • OHH overhung single stage pumps
    The OHH is our API 610 (ISO 13709) type OH2 overhung, horizontal, centerline mounted, single stage, radially split process pump.

  • OHHL low flow high head pumps
    The OHHL is our API 610 (ISO 13709) type OH2 low-flow horizontal overhung process pump. It covers the low-flow end of the OHH range map.

  • SJD API vertically suspended process pump
    The SJD (API) are ISO 13709/API 610 Type VS1 and VS6 pumps whose design has evolved from many years of experience. They utilize Sulzer's low Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) 1st stage, followed by unique high head per stage series hydraulics, to minimize the number of stages required.

  • SJT vertical turbine pump
    SJT pumps are typically used whenever a liquid needs to be pumped upward from ground water tables (deep well pumps), manmade underground storage (caverns) or open bodies of liquid. Fully updated hydraulics and mechanical designs make the SJT highly efficient, cost- effective, and low-maintenance.

  • SMH axially split single stage pump
    SMH pumps are part of the broad single stage, double suction, horizontal split case family within Sulzer. Flowrates are provided to over 11,000 m3/h (50,000 GPM) and heads to over 200m (650 ft).
