Features of a Centrifugal API-610 Pump

Introduction and Scope:
The API-610 pump covers the basic requirements for a centrifugal pump. They are available in expanded ranges that meet the criteria for different industrial sectors. Generally, it is implemented in heavy duty chemical, petroleum, crude oil and gas refining industries and services. They are also constructed to ensure reliability and safety when equipped in certain fields. API-610 pumps run in a reverse fashion featuring as hydraulic power recovery turbines. The prime importance of these pumps when used in the petroleum industry is to maintain the safety and reliability of its make. In case, if the production stops due to the failure of a pump, it can cost millions of dollars to a company per day. Therefore, if a pump is removed for an overhaul, it must be back in service as soon as possible as operating on a spare must be minimized. This should be performed for safety back up and to ensure no loss of production.

Warrender Ltd has been in the market for over 30 years. They are popularly known for applying and producing the sealless magnetic pumps. Warrender’s vast range of sealless magnetic pumps caters the latest technology of pumps with updated designs. The Warrender pumps and the earlier generation Caster Pumps are all specifically engineered for trouble-free performance in several different industries. They are also built for better reliability under dangerous conditions. The primary factors Warrender Ltd, operates on is to ensure reliability, safety and maintainability of the pumps.

Features of API-610 Standard:
  • Long Reliability: These pumps are designed for a minimum service life of 20 years with 3 years of continuous operation.
  • External Nozzle Moments and Forces: The nozzles of these pumps meet maximum moments and forces.
  • Casing Design: The pump pressure casings are designed by using the proper stress analysis techniques.
  • Wear Rings: These pumps are designed to have wear rings on both the impeller and the casing.
  • Rotors: The shaft run-out is confined to 0.001 inch. Originally, the impeller design is built as one piece casting, except for the vertical suspended centrifugal pumps, wherein, the impellers are keyed to the shaft and fastened by a screw.
  • Mechanical Seals: This kind of pump has specific dimensions in the chamber. These dimensions are useful to ensure safety and provide an ideal condition to the mechanical seals.
  • Vibration: There is specific allowable level and value of vibrations set in which the pump operates.
  • Balancing: The balance grades and balancing of the pumps is specified to two stage configurations. The single stage and two stage pumps and the Multi-stage pumps.
Nonetheless, other things like drivers, inspections, base-plates, material inspections and testing are a few more factors that are featured under the API-610 pump list. Apart from the aforementioned list of criteria, if you need to implement the pump in high viscosity, high pressure or high temperature processes, then Warrender API-610 pumps definitely meet your needs. They function in areas that stretch beyond conventional pump configurations. To get more information log on to www.warrender.com.
