Both Reciprocating and Centrifugal type pumps are possible options for HP Ammonia Pumps. What are the selection criteria based on your experience?

Yes both (reciprocating and centrifugal) are suitable candidate for High pressure Ammonia pumping. But reciprocating is good for energy efficiency and bad due high/ frequent maintenance. Maintenance also poses risk during hand over (operation) and maintenance to the plant crew along with loss of ammonia to environment.
If plant capacity is large, high capacity centrifugal pumps are better option due to its trouble free (mostly, if installed & commissioned properly) operation.
