Performance Test of a 5-Stage Helico-Axial Multiphase Pump
A 5-stage helico-axial multiphase pump was tested for studying its performance. The multiphase pump was tested on the conditions of different speed and different gas volume fraction (GVF). According to the test result, performances of the pump were analyzed. And the effects of speed and GVF to differential pressure and efficiency as well as to power of the pump were analyzed at the same time, so some conclusions were made basing of the above research and some of them are very helpful for the future application on the oilfield.
