More wraps are incorporated in pumps designed for higher pressure service. 10 They are commonly used for machinery lubrication, hydraulic elevators, fuel oil transport and burner service, powering hydraulic machinery and in refinery processes for high temperature viscous products such as asphalt, vacuum tower bottoms, and residual fuel oils. Three-screw pumps, also are used extensively in crude oil pipeline service as well as the gathering, boosting, and loading of barges and ships. They are common in engine rooms on most of the world’s commercial marine vessels and many combat ships.

There is also a starting torque which must be overcome. As a rule of thumb, this value is roughly four times the initial torque. Horsepower can be derived from the torque value by the formula Hp = TN , 63025 (47) where T is torque in inch pounds, and N is pump speed in RPM. Progressing cavity pumps are rarely applied on fluids with a viscosity of 1 cP, and there is an added torque which is dependent on the viscosity of the fluid and the geometry of the elements. On slurries, the added torque required is dependent upon the particle size and concentration of solids.

A pump does not pull or lift liquid into itself. Some external force must be present to initially push the fluid into the pumping elements. Normally, atmospheric pressure is the only force present, although there are some applications where a positive inlet pressure is available. Naturally, the more viscous the fluid, the greater the resistance to flow, and, the slower the rate of filling the moving cavities in the inlet. Conversely, low viscosity fluids will flow quite rapidly and will quickly fill the cavities.
