Applied Pumps have supplied a 80mm (3″) Victor S83 pump for pre-filling undersea pipelines prior to their high pressure testing. It is essential for many reasons that pipelines of extreme length and in sensitive areas are proven to be leak free after construction. Applied Pumps recently supplied a Victor, cast iron self-priming centrifugal pump for this purpose. The pump is hydraulically driven by a diesel engine to enable testing to be done remotely away from any electrical power source. Victor S Series pumps are robust and easy to maintain, they have a specially designed non-clogging impeller that will handle fluids contaminated with particles. They are also self-priming and will readily pump aerated fluids
For self-priming pumps or any other fluid related subject give Applied Pumps a call!
