Hi, my name is Trevor Hamblin and I have written this blog about industrial equipment and supplies. It's very important that business owners keep the necessary supplies and equipment on hand to run their operation efficiently. I became interested in industrial equipment and supplies after talking with my neighbor who owns his own business. I never realized how many different supplies were needed to run a business until he explained it to me. After we spoke, I started doing some research on my own and found out a lot more information. Since I believe this is important advice that every business owner should know, I wanted to write a blog about it. I hope that after learning about the industrial equipment and supplies that are needed, you'll also have a better understanding of all that's required.
In the world of industrial development, fluids and gases must be piped and processed through systems for operations, transport, and disposal under various conditions. These fluids can include water, alcohol, petroleum, natural gas, chemical waste, and more. These variables must be considered when deciding on your industrial piping infrastructure. The two most common types of industrial piping technologies are ANSI process pumps and API process pumps. However, a lack of understanding about the differences between these two types of process pumps is rampant within the industry. Poor understanding of these technologies can lead to poor decision-making, resulting in numerous safety hazards and unnecessary expenses for industrial businesses. Many operations leaders mistakenly recommend and use the incorrect process pipe for their needs, putting their staff and livelihood at risk. Here's when to use API process pumps over ANSI process pumps.
Use API Process Pumps When Working in the Gas and Oil Industry
Unlike ANSI process pumps, which adhere to general standards set by the American National Standards Institute, API process pumps adhere to Standard 610 for General Refinery Service. Standard 610 was set by the American Petroleum Institute, ensuring that API 610 process pumps are the most reliable and compliant process pumps for the and oil and gasoline industry. API process pumps are designed to handle viscous fluids and fluids that can cause environmental damage if leaked. API process pumps are also designed to withstand high pressures and temperatures, making them ideal for extracting gas and oil deep beneath the earth's surface. The Environmental Protection Agency has strict standards for emissions compliance, and API process pump systems capture and manage emissions output. If you work within the gas and oil industry, API process pumps are the gold standard.
Use API Process Pumps When Additional Safety Precautions are Needed
When deciding whether to use ANSI process pumps or API process pumps, more than temperatures, pressures, and fluid viscosity must be considered. Industrial leadership must also consider the safety of their staff. Leaders must ask themselves what would happen if the substance within the process pumps were to leak. Would plant staff be in danger? Is the substance flammable? Is the substance toxic? If so, these situations call for the use of API process pumps as an intelligent decision within industries like chemical processing and waste disposal. Due to their meticulous design and heavy-duty steel, API process pumps are also corrosion and fault-resistant. These pumps are an excellent choice for the transport and disposal of harsh chemicals and hazardous waste.
Process pump use cases are many and varied. If safety and durability are a priority, API process pumps are the right choice for you.Share
