Custom Pumping Equipment for Water Transfer in the Oil & Gas Industry
Fischer-Bush Equipment Company is often presented with a project that requires custom equipment. Over the last 50 years, we have earned the reputation for working closely with their customers-including engineering calculations-to design the right system. Such was the case when a client required custom pumping equipment for water transfer in the oil and gas industry. Having to work from a difficult location 0.2 miles away from the water source, Fischer-Bush first installed a fire hydrant and then used a booster pump to maintain the flow rate. Working from their customer's tight specifications, Fischer-Bush was able to deliver 168 gallons per minute of water through a 4" plastic pipe line to a location 2,902' away from the source. In addition, the 6" X 4" booster pump was required to do so over widely varied and demanding pumping elevations from 1,125' to 1,314'.
Fischer-Bush Equipment brings an experienced fabrication team consisting of designers, mechanics, and welders to a wide variety of custom pumping requirements for their oil and gas industry customers. Contact them today to learn how they will go about meeting your project's requirements.
