Different pump types are designed for specific offshore applications.
High density solids pumps:
The most efficient method for conveyance of very stiff material with high viscosity and high share of coarse grain over long conveying distances.
Especially the s-transfer tube system used in this pump type even allows the pumping of material with low water content.
For material with poor flow characteristics a special double auger feeder is used to fill the piston pump Type KOS.
Typical offshore applications for the KOS pumping system are:
