Definition and purpose of the API standard

Standardized chemical pumps are industrial pumps that comply with strict guidelines. These standards are recognized worldwide and guarantee the highest quality and safety requirements. The API standards are particularly important in the oil and gas industry and in the chemical industry, as they ensure the reliability and efficiency of pumps in critical applications.

Introduction to various API standards

There are several API standards that apply to different types of pumps:

  • API 610: Concerns centrifugal pumps for the oil, petrochemical and gas industries. These pumps are known for their robustness and reliability.
  • API 674: Applies to plunger pumps used in applications with high pressures and flow rates, especially in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
  • API 675: Regulates the requirements for hydraulic diaphragm metering pumps, which are known for their high process reliability and flexibility. These pumps are often used in the oil and gas industry as well as in the chemical industry for precise metering tasks. They are characterized by a PTFE multi-layer diaphragm, automatic venting and a modular design.
  • API 676: Applies to positive displacement pumps, which are known for their precise flow rate and high efficiency. These pumps are often used in the oil and gas industry.

By ensuring compliance with the API 674 standard, KAMAT guarantees that the pumps meet the highest requirements in terms of safety, reliability and performance.
