BB5 launch complements CPC Pumps International API 610 range
The Canadian-headquartered CPC Pumps International extended its product range by launching its first-ever BB5 pump. Applications for CPC centrifugal pumps are traditionally in the wider refining and petrochemical industries.
The addition of the BB5 is particularly timely, primarily because one of its major applications will be in helping to sustainably lower environmental impacts. It will be used in carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) processes that are central to lowering CO2 emissions.
Fully compliant with API 610 requirements, CPC’s BB5 pump has the option to swap out individual stages in the future, giving the customer the flexibility to adjust their hydraulics. This provides each pump with a wide-ranging, advanced hydraulic coverage that engineers tailor to meet the needs for each application.
Tushar Patel, General Manager of CPC Pumps International, explained that the launch of the BB5 is in keeping with the design ethos that has served the company well for so many decades. “Each of the BB5 pumps we produce is individually tailored to meet the specific requirements of every customer,” he said.
Part of Atlas Copco Gas and Process, a manufacturer of centrifugal compressors and expanders, CPC Pumps International already has a range of models available, ranging from its OH2 to OH5, VS1/VS6, BB2, and BB3 models. Its BB5 pump expands the range of heavy-duty process pumps for the company. The BB5 line now extends this product range with what many consider the most robust and extreme of the API 610 offerings.
