Downstream sliding vane pumps
A broad range of downstream
applications are handled
by Blackmer Sliding Vane
Pumps: railcar and barge
bulk station transfer, refned
fuels pumping, LPG handling.
Models have a number of
vanes free to slide into or out
of slots in their rotor. When
the pump driver turns the rotor, a combination of centrifugal, mechanical push rods, and
liquid forces — cause the vanes to move outward in their slots
and around the inner bore of the pump casing. This forms internal pumping chambers. As the rotor revolves, fuid fows
through the suction port and into the pumping chambers created by the vanes. Fluid is then transported around the pump
casing until the discharge port is reached — at which point
fuid is moved into the discharge piping.

Drilling-to-cementing transition wireless
New Multi-Plug Launching
Systems remotely launch multiple plugs for onshore and offshore regular and multi-stage
Standard confguration MPLS
measures approximately 7.5-ft
long. It comprises two simple chambers in a launching cylinder. A release mechanism allows each plug to drop away remotely. The system removes the need for manual plug launching as it maximizes safety and effciency in tubular running
and cementing. Modular design allows additional plugs to be
launched by adding body segments.

Confined space inspections — without
NoMan confned space inspection specialist systems
are designed to function without worker entry.
They accommodate pressure vessels, tanks, and pipelines with a remote camera to
increase safety and system availability at reduced costs.
NoMan avoids UAV usage with its high-performance cameras placed remotely into pre-planned locations using a manipulator. The system performs both general and close visual
inspections combined with a laser scan that dimensionally
confrms structural integrity.

Suite helps oil, gas critical infrastructures
meet US cyber security regulations
Lieberman RED - Rapid Enterprise Defense Suite is newly announced to help critical infrastructure industries —including oil and
gas — meet US Federal cyber security regulations.
Five modules help IT identify
and repair weaknesses in security
confgurations, implement strong
privileged identity and management (no default passwords),
and provide an automated remediation when an attacked is
detected. Of equal importance, RED aids in NERC CIP compliance to protect utilities against cyber attacks.
