ESP - Transport
The transport and handling of Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP) components should reflect the high cost and fragile nature of the equipment.
Flexing resulting in permanent distortion of the equipment will cause accelerated wear when the Electrical Submersible Pump is operated. Bearings manufactured from hard, brittle materials such as ceramics are also subject to damage from rough handling and shocks. Limited shock resistance is provided by the use of compliant mountings for these bearings, but these do not provide complete protection from damage if a pump is dropped.
