Hi,

 

The screw type pump is more effective than the centrifugal or reciprocating pumps for pumping heavy crude oil especially when its viscosity is in excess of 100 cST.

Offer or suggest? Do you want one makes an offer?

 

<200 cSt - high-speed cenrifugal multistage

>100 cSt - high-speed multi rotor screw 

100-200 both

 

May be more cost efficient is to heat this fluid up?

I am able to offer nothing as I am engineer, not a salesperson or something. To an engineer in general BB design seems more robust, but as always details are crucial.
