Powerful and reliable production even with heavy crude oils

Heavy crude oil or heavy extra oil is a kind of oil that does not flow easily. It is called heavy oil because its density or its specific weight is higher than light crude oil. Production, transport and refining heavy crude oils make very high demands on all components of the conveying equipment with regard to the pump efficiency and reliability.

You can really describe it in terms of a formula: The heavier the crude oil, the more expensive it is to transport. In this case, only pumps and systems whose reliability and quality have already been proven over and over in practice, like those from Bornemann, can be used.
