Learn how to choose a quality stainless steel pump for oil recovery.

The BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico created a new demand in the oil business.  It sparked opportunity where the industry didn’t initially think would be a demanding necessity as it is today.  Oil and spillage recovery jobs are huge.  To implement their tasks effectively, the industry uses stainless steel equipment to ensure it is completed in a safe and efficient manner.  This translates to big money and time being spent on stainless steel pumps.  For this specific reason, it is vital to the oil and gas industry to identify the traits in a good quality pump.

What to Look for in a Stainless Steel Pump

Here are a few tips on how to choose the best pumps for your oil drilling, recovery and refinery needs.

Look for a pump that has a great capacity to manage mixtures of air, water and thick oily sludge.  It should also provide reverse operation, suction lift and vacuum at inlet and pulsation free pumping.  Think about the low shear pumping qualities too.  Does it homogenize or emulsify the liquid?  If so then the pump you selected is also effective at oil and water separations, which is key in oil recovery and cleanup management.
