What is a petrochemical pump? Petrochemical pumps are used to extract or move petrochemicals – or viscous, toxic, corrosive fluids. Petrochemical pumps are capable of generating high rates of flow and pressure. They are also designed to prevent leaks that could result in catastrophic environmental damage.
Petrochemical pumps are often used throughout the process of refining, processing, and moving petrochemicals. Several different types of pumps might be used in the complicated process of refining crude oil. Petrochemical pumps may be piston pumps, diaphragm pumps, mag drive pumps or other type of process pump or chemical pump.
