The Sulzer BBS is a single stage, double suction API 610 BB2 pump, that is designed for high temperatures and pressures. Commonly serving in oil refineries, petrochemical plants, and offshore environments, the Sulzer BBS pump has proven itself to be a very reliable piece of equipment.
In 2012, the Sulzer factory decided to incorporate Isomag bearing isolators on their BBS BB2 API pump to add to it's already robust reputation. This batch of pumps went to an oil refinery using oil mist as the lubrication system. Isomag bearing isolators eliminate stray oil mist their liquid tight sealing faces. In addition to providing superior sealing and protection.
Since the installation, their customer has reported that the stray oil mist issue has been alleviated and their pumps in the unit have cooler bearing housings.
