Specialist pump manufacturer develops oil and gas pump system

Pump manufacturingLFH Engineering, which is based in Scotland, has invested approximately US$348811.25 to develop a specialist pump for the oil and gas industry, utilising expertise which it has built designing and manufacturing pumps for diesel engine cooling systems used on international shipping vessels, locomotive and emergency diesel generators to the nuclear industry

With 75% of its business overseas, LFH Engineering has built an enviable worldwide reputation for the design and manufacture of high-performance pumps to cool large diesel engines which propel large ships and locomotives for leading diesel engine manufacturers, including Bergen Engines Caterpillar and MAN Energy Solutions.

Having successfully met the demands of the world’s leading diesel engine manufacturers for the past 10 years, the company has now launched a wellbore testing transfer pump system for the oil and gas industry.

The LFH-1000 electric driven centrifugal pump improves flow performance and solids management, processes, overcoming many of the operational difficulties associated with traditional pump systems. The compact design can be mobilised quickly and takes up less space than older-style pumps. Furthermore, the centrifugal design maximises fluid recovery and maintains a constant flow rate. The pumps are designed to cope with a wide range of fluid transfer applications.

CEO of LFH Engineering Les Hill said, “Our design calculations determine the pumps capability to withstand a 10g shock load which is necessary for the nuclear industry, so we can ensure the performance we offer is fit for the most demanding working conditions.

As part of its commitment to the oil and gas sector, LFH has appointed business development manager Neil Williamson, who brings with him more than 20 years of oil and gas industry experience. Neil added, “The LFH-1000 has been under development for a number of years with input from major well service companies, and we are now in discussion with oil and gas operators and contractors to utilise our pump unit either on or offshore.”
