pumpability

pumpability

[‚pəm·pə′bil·əd·ē]
(materials)
The property of a lubricating grease that causes it to flow under pressure through lines, nozzles, and fittings.
The ability of any liquid, slurry, or suspension to be moved through a flow conduit by pressure from a pump.

They are also used for the prevention or reduction of settlement to reduce segregation and increase the pumpability and penetration of concrete, mortar or grouts.
The highly advanced base oil combinations deliver unmatched pumpability at temperatures as low as -50 C (-58 F).
The rotary hole will provide essential information on the pumpability of the brine.
Due to the requirement for pumpability of fresh concrete, there was chosen a procedure of dosing fibers in steps by 20 kg-25 kg-30 kg per [m.sup.3] of fresh concrete.
Pumpability is the stability and mobility of a mixture under pressure.
The tubing's unreinforced characteristic allows for limited pumpability up to 30 psi back pressure and makes it easier to see process fluids.
Not only does this facilitate rapid construction, improving pumpability and workability, it is environmentally friendly and easy to use.
Moreover, the low viscosity of the fluid throughout its operating temperature ensures strong system efficiency and pumpability.
This thermal stability allows much lower bulk viscosity for cold pumpability, providing a lighter material that was produced using less energy.
