kIMRAY GLYCOL PUMP
The Glycol Energy Exchange Pump, “Pressure Volume” or “PV-Series” Pump was developed in 1957. The initial consideration was a pump that would utilize the energy of the wet glycol at absorber pressure as a source of power. Within the confines of a system, energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Energy can, however, be stored, transferred, or changed from one form to another. The PV Series Pump transfers the energy available from the wet glycol, at absorber pressure, to an “equivalent” volume of dry glycol at reboiler pressure. In order to circulate the glycol, additional energy is needed to overcome friction losses within the pump and connecting piping. This additional energy is supplied by gas at absorber pressure.
