Pipeline Pumps are basically employed for transporting crude oil through piping (pipelines) from the area of production or tank farm to refineries. The fundamental duty of a pipeline pump is to transport fuel that provides many benefits over the haulage including helping relieve port congestion, consuming less energy during transfer as the process is far more efficient.
The water injection pump unit consists of a booster pump stage and two high-speed injection pump stages, driven by a common driver over a spacer coupling and a gearbox. The water injection pump and the consequent step-up gearbox are built as an integrated unit with combined bearings for gearbox output and pump shafts. The HP impellers are directly fitted on the output shafts, with a light interference fit and two symmetrical keyways.

To be able to cope with sand, water and gases found in crude oil, pumping systems for mineral oil require heavy duty pumps with reliable engineered mechanical seals that feature durable sliding faces with good emergency running characteristics. Often it is necessary to seal pressures in excess of 100 bar and sliding velocities of over 60 m/s. The ideal seal face combination for such conditions have proven to be high-strength carbons running against silicon carbide.
