Pipeline Testing

Hughes Pumps have a long history in supplying pumps for pipeline and process services to the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, mainly for pre-commissioning and commissioning services. We manufacture a wide range of pumps with the largest being able to pressure test 60" pipelines over tens of kilometres.

The plunger pumps are heavy duty and ruggedly designed

The plunger pumps are low speed, heavy duty and ruggedly designed for use in the harshest of environments, including the Middle East. 431 stainless steel is used as standard for the pumphead with 316 & Duplex stainless steel as options for pumping seawater, corrosive chemicals or hydrocarbons.

The pumps are versatile, allowing a contractor to use the same pump for flushing, pressure testing & water jetting pipelines as well as being suitable for water injection and well testing applications. If the pump is converted to 1000bar (14,500psi) it can also be used for hydro-milling of heavily scaled/blocked pipework systems.
