Features of pumps
There are a number of different types and sizes of pumps. The oilfield pumps can vary quite a bit in size. Some of them are able to fit into a pickup truck, while others are actually quite a bit larger and more difficult to move. The pump contains a number of different elements including sucker rods, the pumpjack, plunger, and valves, all of which facilitate the movement of the pump and ensure proper action.
How pumps work
The most typical type of pump involved in the field is the pump that actually brings up the oil from the ground. Once the drilling rig is able to locate the oil reservoirs beneath the earth’s surface, they will begin to pump the oil from the hole. The pump can help to control the oil coming to the surface, and it can actually help remove oil that’s trapped in the ground. Most of the time, the oil doesn’t have enough pressure to burst from the hole, so the oil producers utilize pumps.
Pumps are surely one of the most important elements to any oilfield. Without having high quality pumps, it quickly becomes impossible to remove the oil and gas from the ground. Having an adequate number of pumps, and pumps that are high enough in quality ensure that the operation flows smoothly from start to finish. It is important to keep in mind that there are actually quite a few different types of pumps that fall under this umbrella, and each of them is different. For example, the rig may have pumps on it. However, vacuums and vacuum trucks, centrifuges, and more may also have pumps.
