High Temperature Down-Hole Pumps Extend the Application Range of Progressing Cavity Pumps


Robbins & Myers Energy Services Group has a line of Moyno High Temperature Down-Hole Pump Solutions. The Moyno high temperature down-hole pumps, designated Moyno HTD pumps, provide unique solutions to high temperature applications that previously prevented operators from using downhole progressing cavity pumps (PCPs).

After extensive research and development as well as thorough in-field application testing, one of the products Robbins & Myers Energy Services Group’s launched was the Moyno HTD660 Down-Hole Pump. This product features metal-to-metal rotor/stator technology. The stator does not include elastomer.

The Moyno HTD660 High Temperature Down-Hole Pumps feature:

  • The capability of handling downhole temperatures to 660° F
  • Closely controlled tolerances between the metal-to-metal rotor/stator clearance for superior performance
  • Produces low levels of vibration that are comparable to conventional downhole PCPs
  • Ideally suited to handle hot oil encountered during thermal recovery methods such as steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) and cyclic steam stimulation (CSS)

Tripling Service Life in a Wastewater Treatment Plant: FSIP Pump Design Permits Situation-Specific Adaptation

16.05.2019 -

An existing pump, which conveyed thick sludge to an intermediate tank, showed a high level of wear due to the abrasive medium. The wastewater treatment plant therefore decided to replace it with a unit that is more robust and easier to maintain. A Nemo progressing cavity pump with a special “Full Service in Place” (FSIP) concept from German-based company Netzsch Pumpen & Systeme has therefore been used since 2016.
