Pipelines handling liquids in excess of about 500 ssu viscosity will normally use rotary, positive displacement pumps both for optimum efficiency and frequently lower initial cost. Some insight into the application of rotary pumps to some of the unique requirements facing users of pipelines in crude oil transport, electric utility power generation and general industrial needs are discussed. Pipelines are used to transport a broad range of liquids including crude oils, fuel oils, refined products such as petrol, water, speciality chemicals and others.
