Chemical metering pump manufacturer, Neptune Chemical Pump Co., has launched its Solar D Series chemical injection pump. The Solar D pump was developed as part of a joint engineering effort with Ferguson Beauregard, a sister company of Neptune’s within the Dover Corporation.

The Solar D is a solar-powered chemical injection pump that feeds production chemicals into remote oil and gas wells where electrical power is often unavailable. The pump’s method of operation includes maximum chemical containment, precise and consistent chemical-injection rates at pressures up to 1,200 psi (83 bar). The manufacturers say that dosing rates (from 0 to 45 gallons per day) translate into increased production with a corresponding reduction in chemical expenses.

Additionally, the Solar D features a seal-less diaphragm technology that eliminates chemical leaks while offering chemical compatibility. Intelligent controls are designed to give the operator maximum visibility into the system and real-time monitoring of the well site.

The unit is equipped with a brushless motor; standard corrosion-resistant 316 stainless steel and PTFE chemical ends; hydraulically balanced diaphragm designed for reduced wear; and no dynamic seals for reduced leak points.
