Like snowflakes and human fingerprints, no two oil wells are exactly the same. Even though they may be located on adjacent plots of land, the characteristics of the wells can be vastly different. Whereas one might have a straight, unencumbered path to the product reservoir, the second's drilling route may require a number of dogleg turns to avoid difficult rock and sediment formations, which can give the final wellbore the look of a corkscrew.

Blackmer GNX and GNXH Series sliding vane pumps incorporate numerous design features that help them excel in a wide variety of chemical-transfer applications. The design of GNX and GNXH Series pumps eliminates traditional couplings and features a commercial-grade, single-stage gearbox with aluminum housings, NEMA C-face or IEC D-flange motor connections and a proprietary output shaft that is compatible with the Blackmer keyed pump shaft. This revolutionary design makes GNX and GNXH Series pumps the industry's first alignment-free, reduced-speed pumps for use in both portable and stationary applications, Blackmer states.
Blackmer, part of PSG, a Dover company, has announced that its TX Series sliding vane pumps feature the reliability, durability and efficiency that make them ideal for use in the transfer of a wide array of petroleum-based products, such as diesel fuel. Specifically, the sliding vanes in Blackmer TX Series pumps have been engineered with the strength needed to excel in these types of critical applications over competitive models, especially foreign "knockoff" versions. Lab tests show Blackmer sliding vanes outperform competitive knockoff models by more than two-to-one in flexural-strength tests.
Blackmer S Series Twin Screw pumps provide numerous design and efficiency advantages that are ideal for transfering bitumen from tankers to the distant tank-farm facility. Liquid bitumen must be handled at very high temperatures in order to keep it at a workable viscosity. However, even at high temperatures liquid bitumen can be an extremely viscous and shear-sensitive product. Therefore, shipyard operators and tanker owners demand a pumping technology that has been specifically designed to transfer highly viscous liquids over great distances.
The market’s only alignment free reduced speed positive displacement pumps, Blackmer GNX and GNXH Series pumps are designed to handle a wide range of non-corrosive, non-abrasive industrial liquids and petroleum products.
