Galbiati Group recently performed the machining of a horizontal multi-stage pump in carbon steel (A216 WCB), which is composed of a body that is divided axially. The pump body is in fact composed of a lower half-body and an upper one.
Both half-bodies were machined separately and certificated through a final inspection performed with a Zeiss three-dimensional measuring machine.
The pump was designed according to API 10th edition for use in the petrochemical industry and in the plant, it will pump oil at a flow rate of 510 m 3/h with a prevalence of 689 m (this is equivalent to a capacity of 420 t / h with a differential pressure of 55.63 bar).
The pump housing is designed to withstand a pressure of 90 bar at 55 degrees centigrade and has been tested in water, with positive results, at a pressure of 135 bar.
