API Standard Pump BB1 – KBAD

API Standard Pump BB1 – KBAD

The KBAD is an API BB1 type process pump with near Centerline support. This pump with a heavy-duty axial split casing design ensures high reliability and efficiency during operations. It is manufactured as per API 610. The range covers a pump head of 460 m with a discharge pressure of up to Cl. 600#. Nozzle orientation as the side-side, the direction of rotation is clockwise when viewed from the coupling end. The KBAD pump is suitable for applications in oil refineries and petrochemical industries and chemical and allied industries.

Max Head:Up to 460 m Max capacity:Up to 6240 m3/hr

  • The pump is designed and manufactured as per API 610 standard.
  • KBAD has a single-stage design with heavy-duty near Centerline support with axial split casing to ensure efficient performance at high capacity operations.
  • Easy inspection and repair maintenance of bearings and mechanical seal after removal of coupling spacer only. The rotor can be removed by disassembling the upper half casing without disturbing suction/discharge piping and driver.
  • Low NPSH requirement is achieved with double suction impeller

  • Cooling water circulations
  • Petroleum product Pipeline booster applications
  • Crude Oil/Pipeline
  • HPRT
  • Quench water
