      Dear Sirs,
      i have a question need to help,
      i want to handle mixed (liquid (oil, water....)and gas) from platform to platform, so can i used piston pump or centrifugal pump or screw pump?

      Yes.

      You need to provide more information on the task to get useful answers.

      Do you need to pump it at 10,000 liters per second? Is the elevation 3000 meters? Is the temperature of the substance -40C or +500C? Do you mean the liquid contains gas? Pumping gas and water well with the same pump is not possible, but pistons and diaphragms can do it.

      The first step may be to learn how to ask questions well.

      if you are using high viscous liquid then go through lobepump.

      If the mixture contains gas, then don't use centrifugal pumps or screw pumps as cavitation would be a major issue. A diaphragm pump or piston pump would be advisable. The best material for the pump depends on properties of the mixture, and the size would depend on the flowrate required.
