A customer from the oil and gas industry was looking for a high performance long-shaft pump. Due to the extreme weather conditions in winter, the customer wanted a pump which could be installed in a tank two to three meters underground. The customer decided on a long-shaft version of a Börger Rotary Lobe Pump.
The pump is completely underground and fitted with a customized long-shaft coupling between the pump and the drive. Compared with a similarly constructed pump system, the advantage is that the long-shaft coupling was separated from the medium. The individually pressurized condensate tank is a special feature as it required a solution for the connections to the assembly plate.
