Sundyne, a global leader in the design and manufacture of highly-engineered high-head, low-flow pumps and compressors for use in the global oil and gas production, refining, petrochemical and chemical industries, is pleased to announce the launch of its low NPSHr, high-flow pump.

The Sundyne LMV-803Lr is an API 610 compliant pump available in either OH3 or OH5 motor mounting configuration that provides ultra-low NPSHr performance – approximately 5 ft (1.5 m), across the entire performance range – for flows to 800 GPM (180 m3/ h) and heads to 1000 ft (305 m).

The ultra-low NPSHr allows the pump to be installed at grade level, eliminating the expense of installation in a pit and performing maintenance in a confined space.

The vertical design is ideal for use in refineries, NGL, petrochemical and chemical plants, as well as handling light hydrocarbon handling services, such as bottom pumps for de-ethanisers.

Based on highly reliable Sundyne direct drive technology, the LMV-803Lr is the company’s most rugged pump to date, delivering a compact footprint, low vibration and increased efficiency.

Featuring innovative Sundyne inducer technology and a newly redesigned backswept impeller, this model is capable of meeting lower NPSHr requirements than either BB2 or VS style pumps without risk of cavitation.

The LMV-803Lr also boasts a robust new 6x4 casing that is engineered to operate reliability in extremely high-pressure applications with maximum case working pressures equivalent to 1000 psig (70 kg/cm2).
