Solving an Acoustic Resonance in Crude Oil Pump Internals
MetadataShow full item record
Specific Problem: Crude oil pump piping system that had previously operated without problems experienced a failure resulting in a release of oil: Vibration increased when a new well was opened and the fluid properties varied; discharge piping connections had high vibrations (risk of failure); tubing failure due to high vibrations in piping system transmitting through vent piping; discrete excitation at 300 Hz. SwRI performed field testing and in-house analysis to find the source and resolve the problem.
