Pressure pumping


    NETZSCH has manufactured positive displacement pumps worldwide for more than six decades. NETZSCH’s NEMO® progressing cavity pumps and TORNADO® rotary lobe pumps are designed specifically for the most demanding pumping applications. NETZSCH pumps range in size from the industry's smallest metering pumps to high-volume pumps for applications in the oil and gas or mining industries.

  • TORNADO® Rotary Lobe Pumps

    The NETZSCH TORNADO® T2 rotary lobe pump is ideal for pumping many petrochemical products including crude oil, heavy oil, light oil and petroleum. Suitable applications for the NETZSCH TORNADO® T2 rotary lobe pump include: oil/diesel fuel transfer, waste/slop oil, and crude oil tank washing.

  • Crude Oil Transfer and Multiphase Boosting Solutions

    The highest standards for equipment and safety are a basic requirement for oil field work to ensure that processes remain safe and reliable. NEMO® and TORNADO® pumps contribute to such safety and reliability. The complexity of pump media ranges from highly viscous to low-viscous, from shearing-sensitive to heavily laden with solid matter. The sophisticated and reliable design meets the particular pump job requirements and contributes to efficient process control. These pumps meet the requirements of API 676 3rd edition and also NACE MR-0-175.

  • NETZSCH Pumps improve efficiency and reduce costs for Acid Mine Water Drainage

    The Acid Mine Water Drainage Scheme is a project to de-water abandoned gold mines in the Johannesburg Area. Since the mid-19th century, gold mines started moving and followed the gold vein. Many of the original mine shafts near Grootvlei became abandoned and over the years filled with acidic mine water. Persistent rain and raising groundwater caused steadily raising water levels in tunnels and shafts. This has serious implications for the Johannesburg area, be-cause the water contains dissolved heavy metals and sulphur. On an earlier phase of the scheme peristaltic pumps were installed for lime slurry dosing which is used to neutralize the acidic water. However, these pumps were expen-sive to maintain and had a high power consumption.

  • Compact and powerful: Robust pump reliably conveys highly abrasive oil sand mixture

    Crude oil with a high sand content (up to 30%) is one of the most difficult fluids: The operating conditions such as viscosity, gas content and temperature differ significantly between various oil fields. In context to high differential pressure the sand particles are extremely abrasive. This results to frequent maintenance or replacement of the pump. Which means high costs for new plants and losses due to downtime. The TORNADO® T2 rotary lobe pump from NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH was specifically developed for such demanding operating conditions and is distinguished by a long service life and a high degree of operational reliability. The unique design is also highly compact and ATEX-compliant – two important features for any oil production operation.
