Take control of your surface pump costs, stop failures, and avoid gas cycling
NOVOMET » Horizontal Pumping Systems (HPS)

Horizontal Pumping Systems

Novomet horizontal pumping systems (HPS) use electrical submersible pumping (ESP) technology in surface applications to help customers control costs, stop failures, and avoid gas cycling. Because of their advantages over older pump technologies, surface pumps are quickly becoming the standard for common applications like fluid transfer and water injection. Unfortunately, some surface pump manufacturers are putting out unreliable systems that fail prematurely or that burn out due to gas presence in the fluid. Too many horizontal pumping systems wind up beaten and broken. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Novomet HPS

Horizontal pumping systems from Novomet are built on superior pump designs originally engineered for efficiency in ESP production. When used in a skid-mounted horizontal configuration, our pumps not only deliver efficiency, they also offer low-maintenance reliability with the ability to handle gassy fluids. We install centrifugal and multiphase pumps, and offer fully mobile systems with the HPS skid and variable speed drive mounted on a trailer.

Novomet HPS advantages

  • Perform no major maintenance for 3 years (assumes routine monthly servicing)
  • Replace and upgrade only the parts you need with skid-mounted, modular assembly (on our HPS or a competitor’s)
  • Efficiently handle gas-to-fluid ratios as high as 97%
  • Start pumping in as few as 2 weeks with short order fulfillment times (varies by system and location)
  • Deploy almost anywhere with weather-resistant outdoor materials and construction
  • Add an enclosure for protection in extreme temperatures and environments
  • Choose trailer-mounted systems for easy deployment and mobility
  • Use the interactive interface to manually control equipment and operating parameters
  • Set it and forget it with automated operation, or control the system from anywhere with remote access and control (pump frequency, control valve, etc.)
  • Keep pumping in fluids with a wide viscosity range (1 – 450 cp), suction pressure as low as 1.5 psi (0.1 bar), flowrates from 95 – 100,000 BPD (15 – 16,000 m3/d), and temperatures up to 480°F (250°C)
