The unit is capable of generating flow rates up to 60,000 barrels of fluid per day with suction pressures up to 900 psi and discharge pressures up to 1,200 psi.
Experiments with room air distribution that is generated by a radial ceiling-mounted diffuser and a diffuser generating flow with swirl are compared with the air distribution obtained by mixing ventilation from a wall-mounted diffuser, vertical ventilation, and displacement ventilation.
Unlike other flow tools, FlowView includes an independent infrastructure for generating flow information at any remote site, and also provides a simple and secure remote analysis system.
The pumpset is also available as a 6x4 100CX and the 150CX in 8x6 configuration using the 596 kW (800 HP) Cat C27ACERT engine at speeds up to 2,000 rpm for generating flows of in excess of 600 cu m/hr making it probably the highest performing self-priming pump currently in the world.
