Heavy-duty process pumps for API Standard 610, Revision Nine
February 20, 2003
Heavy-duty process pumps can now be used for many applications specified under the American Petroleum Institute''s (API) Standard 610, Ninth Edition. This newest revision specifically allows users to employ at their discretion non-API style pumps in services defined by parameters addressed in "Section 1 - Scope" of the Standard. Pumps are available in a variety of materials, including carbon steel and 316 stainless steel. The pumps are capable of flows to 6,000 gpm, heads to 800'', discharge pressures to 500 psig, and temperatures to 500 degrees F using ambient air cooling, or 850 degrees F with water cooling, thereby exceeding the capabilities defined in this section of API-610.
