API Maxum OH2

The API Maxum OH2 is designed for optimum reliability, featuring rugged construction and state-of-the-art mechanical design. Units are well suited for applications that include petroleum refining/production/distribution, petrochemical/chemical processing, boiler circulation/high- temperature applications, and general industrial use. A workhorse in the industry, these pumps are designed for years of service, in some of the toughest environments imaginable.

This model is fully compliant with latest edition API 610 specifications. Standard features include renewable casing wear rings, API 610 seal chamber sized to accommodate 682 mechanical seals, back pull-out construction, dynamically-balanced impellers, heavy-duty carbon steel/finned bearing housing equipped with labyrinth-type oil seals, and fan cooling. Locations are also included for temperature probes, as standard. Common options include single, double or tandem mechanical seals, and various seal flush systems. Heavy-duty baseplates, casing jackets, and various levels of performance testing are also available.

Together, these features combine to produce some of the most efficient hydraulics in the industry and shaft deflection values meeting or exceeding those of API 610 requirements. The API Maxum OH2 is also available as an OH1 design for lower temperature applications.

Design Data




Class 300 ANSI flanges with centerline discharge assist in self-venting.


Wear Rings

Replaceable casing and backhead wear rings maintain efficiency and balanced axial loads.



Back pull-out design with registered fits and fully-confined gaskets assure sealing and alignment of critical fits. Casing drains included as standard.



Enclosed, high-efficiency impellers balanced to ISO 1940, Grade G2.5 for vibration-free operation. All impellers are keyed to shaft.


API 610 Seal Chamber

Provides an ideal seal environment for both single/dual, pressurized/unpressurized cartridge mechanical seals. A full range of API 682 piping plans is also available to maximize seal life.


Bearing Frame

Heavy-duty bearing housing with cooling fins, fan and labyrinth seals keep oil clean and cool for greater bearing life.


Bearing Lubrication

Oil-lubricated bearings with standard flooded or optional flinger lubrication. Conversion to purge oil mist or pure oil mist is possible without additional machining.


Cooling Fan

Cooling fan allows ambient temperatures to 110° F and fluid temperatures to 600° F in centerline mount configuration. The cooling fan also extends bearing life.



Minimal shaft deflection extends mechnical seal and wear ring life.

Featured Story

Fueling Tugboats in the Panama Canal

Tugboats play an essential role for the canal, assisting vessels through any of the twelve locks and staying close in case of power or steering lose. The tugboats must be re-fueled from terminals positioned along transit routes, which is why decision-makers managing the Panama Canal decided to build a new terminal at the Miraflores lock, near Gatun Lake. More fuel pumping terminals along the canal means the tugboats will have more access points for refueling, thereby saving time and improving efficiency.
