Process Metering Pumps, Measuring Instruments and Water Treatment Systems

Im Schuhmachergewann 5-11,
69123 Germany

ProMinent offers tailor-made complete solutions for all metering applications from a single supplier. These include high-performance process metering pumps, skids and storage tanks, and control engineering.

Processing solutions for the oil, gas and petrochemicals industries

The company provides materials and equipment for a variety of operations, such as subsea oil and gas drilling and pumps, processing hazardous chemicals and producing high-grade plastics.

All components, systems and interfaces are optimally matched to one another and have been consistently proven. This results in a high degree of reliability, upon which ProMinent has always built its excellent reputation.

Oil separation and extraction products for upstream operations

ProMinent supplies various solutions that are suitable for oil extraction operations on-board oil rigs. The company’s products can be used for oil separation from gas and water, and crude oil treatment at the wellhead for storage and transport (corrosion protection, flow properties).

Pumping stations and pipelines for offshore midstream applications

ProMinent’s pipelines and pumping stations help to reduce frictional losses, provide corrosion-resistance and control gas odourisation.

Gas storage and treatment systems

ProMinent supplies solutions for downstream applications, including bio and natural gas storage, petrochemical refineries and oil and gas treatment systems.

The company’s provide corrosion-prevention, clean and distil oil and water, process water and waste, and treat process steam and water.

Process metering pumps

ProMinent offers a wide range of process metering pumps, which are designed to handle suitable volumetric flows of up to 38,000l/h, media temperatures between -40°C to 400°C, and extreme pressures of up to 3,000bar.

The company’s pumps have been proving themselves for decades, even in the toughest of conditions. Alongside their rugged construction, their flexible performance profiles also allow them to be used in many different applications. Process metering pumps can also be adapted very accurately to almost any customer specification.

ProMinent provides:

  • Diaphragm metering pumps (mechanically deflected diaphragm)
  • Hydraulic diaphragm metering pumps (hydraulically deflected diaphragm)
  • Plunger metering pumps
  • Peristaltic pumps


  • High degree of safety, thanks to PTFE multi-layer diaphragm and integrated overflow valve
  • Highest pressures of up to 3,000bar
  • Design compliant with API 674, API 675, VDMA, ATEX, etc.
  • Media temperatures from -40°C to 400°C
  • Custom solutions for liquids with a dynamic viscosity of up to 100,000mPa/s
  • Suction height up to 8m

High-power process metering pumps

Due of their compression-rigid characteristics, ProMinent’s high-power process metering pumps achieve highly precise metering, as well as comply with API 675 standards on oscillating displacement pumps with adjustable stroke volumes. These specifications of the American Petroleum Institute serve as one of the most important guidelines in refineries and in the petroleum and natural gas industry.

The long-service life of the diaphragm and the plunger guarantees a maintenance and trouble-free operation. Hermetically sealed metering units and adequately resistant materials provide for a problem-free delivery of aggressive media. The process metering pumps of the series MF are self-priming even at great heights thanks to their special mechanical / hydraulic properties.

Examples of application include:

  • Offshore extraction of oil and gas uses numerous aggressive chemical
  • Handling of aggressive chemicals to prevent corrosion and deposits in the pipes
  • Cleaning, in particular removing oil, of drainage water on drilling platforms
  • Gas extraction from a depth of around 70m in the Persian Gulf
