We want to share a case with you esteemed readers, where the needs themselves resulted in an interesting project, which was developed for a new installation of transshipment and fuel transportation. In today’s business world, portability and flexibility are very important, ranging from our portable access points to equipment that we cannot do without; and these -in turn- serve different purposes.
So, this new company was created to do something revolutionary with this great idea of high volume mobile pumps to transport fuels. But what was still resonating in the environment during our interviews was the need to give options that would work really easily. So why not share the options that have been shared with you, our readers.
So we began to point out some of them, our starting point is best transfer pumps greater than 100 GPM (gallons per minute, 378 liters aporx.) And with many configurations such as pumps with diesel engines, gasoline or alternating current.
We would not like to distract you with these technicalities that we have just defined since the solutions are more than a small snack.
Well, here we go:
1. If you are looking for transfer of diesel, biodiesel, or ethanol, here is a great option that will give 100 GPM with gasoline or diesel engine.
The safest way to perform any hazardous pumping operation is to use a pump suitable for the challenge. Gorman-Rupp offers Shield-A-SaprkTM pumps for transferring and sending flammable liquids without any concern.
On safety and the most relevant: self-priming centrifugal pump / motor with anti-spark and splash shield / muffler and fuel filler cap / ignition / encapsulation cable / spark plugs / approved spark arrester / non-combustible air filter and valves long life. There are models available with gasoline or diesel engines.
2.- Now, if what you are looking for is greater flow, we would go to the model whose rank is 380 GMP
Designed for applications that require high efficiency in the transfer flow and solids handling capacity. These pumps are constructed of heavy duty molded aluminum or molded iron with ductile iron impellers and steel or cast iron plates.
A clean front design allows easy removal of garbage and debris without disconnecting the hoses. The pumps are available with Honda, Kohler or Lombardini gasoline engines, John Deere or Deutz diesel engines. All are equipped with aspiration filters and 90 ° discharge elbows.
4 “x 4” NPT (National Pipes Thread) 13 HP (horsepower) Honda gas engine, with aluminum body, Viton seals, and frame. This model is also available with diesel engines.
3. – Well, here comes the “Powerful” are you looking to achieve a flow of 1000 GPM? Now we go to the range of our 6 “pumps.
Made of molded iron or aluminum / Viton silicon carbide mechanical seals / up to 25 ft. (Ft., 305 m) self-suction / With Honda, Kohler or Lombardini engines, John Deere or Deutz diesel engines / Engines available from 13 to 57 HP (horsepower) / Two tractor / trailer wheel assemblies for standard highway on some models (DOT approved trailers on request).
Now, it is important to emphasize that “explosion proof” has nothing to do with the pump itself but rather with the engine (diesel or gasoline). So the option to have an explosion-proof motor or not is certainly an option for you. However, we must point out that we will not sell any pump that is not explosion proof for ethanol handling.
4.- To add an additional option, we can take a look at the high-flow transfer AC motor.
For this you must have a generator with capacity of 380 v (volts) three-phase to use this giant. We will not get into this issue a lot since most of the pumps that have been ordered are diesel or gasoline, but we have this option ready for you.
This is the line of high flow pumps that we handle. These pumps can be used for transfer, driving or filling of diesel, gasoline, biodiesel or ethanol in particular.
From our line of high flow pumps; monitoring meters for filling, driving and transshipment flow; up hoses and reels; count on us to create an economic package but very complete, that will help you to move forward in your projects.
