We wanted to share a case with you, our readers, where the need for options became such an intersting project that was developed for a new transloading facility. In today’s business world, flexibility and portability are very important to all of us. I know for me they are, from our portable hotspots to the equipment we cannot do without, serving many different purposes.
So, this new company was set to make a splash with a great idea of high volume portable pumps for the transloading of fuels. But the one thing that kept on resonnating during our many conversations was, please give me otions that work out of the box. So, we thought why not share the options that were discussed with you, our readers.
So we begin by hightling a few of them, our bench mark is trasfer pumps greater than 100 GPM, and with many configurations such as diesel powered transfer pumps, gasoline powered transfer pumps, or AC powered pumps.
Stay with me here because I may get a bit geeky (technical) and the options are more than a mouthful.
Ok here we go:
1) If you are looking to transfer diesel, Biodiesel, or Ethanol. Here is a great option that will get you 100 gpm with a fuel diesel or gasoline powered motor.
The safest way to approach any hazardous pumping operation is to use a pump that is built to handle the job. Gorman-Rupp offers Shield-A-SparkTM pumps to transfer and deliver flammable liquids with peace of mind.
Highlights and safety: self-priming centrifugal pumps / spark and splash shielded engine / muffler and fuel fill cap / spark plugs / ignition wire/ sealed ignition / approved spark-arrestor muffler/ non-combustible air filter and long- life valves. Models are available with gasoline or diesel engines.
2) Now, if you want higher flow rate. We step up to the 380 GPM model range.
Designed for applications which require high flow efficiency and solids handling capability. Pumps are constructed of heavy duty sand cast aluminum or cast iron with replaceable ductile iron impellers and steel or cast iron wearplates. Simple front cleanout design permits easy removal of trash and debris without disconnecting hoses. Pumps are available with Honda or Kohler gasoline engines or Lombardini, John Deere or Deutz diesel engines. All are furnished with suction strainers and 90 degree discharge elbows.
4”x4” NPT, 13 HP Gas Powered Honda Engine, Aluminum Body, Viton Seals, and Roll Cage (Frame). This model is also available with a Diesel Powered Engine.
3) No here comes big Bertha, looking to achieve up to 1000 GPM? We step up to our 6″ pump range.
Cast Iron or Cast Aluminum Construction
Viton®*/Silicon Carbide Mechanical Seals
Self-priming up to 25 ft.
Engine Options: Honda or Kohler Gasoline Engine; Lombardini, Deutz or John Deere Diesel Engine.
Available in 13 – 57 HP Engine
Two (2) Wheel Truck Assembly or Highway Trailer Standard on Some Models (D.O.T. Approved Trailer – Upon Request)
Now, its’ worth mentioning that “explossion proof” really has absolutely nothing to do with the pump itself but rather with the motor. (diesel, gasoline powered)
So the option for having an explossion proof motor or not is certainly an option to you. However, I must say that we will not sell any pumps that are not explossion proof for the handling of Ethanol.
4) Now to add one more option, we can look at an AC powered high flow transfer pump. For that you will need to have a generator capable of 380 v three phase to run this bad boy. I won’t get too much into this one since most of the pumps being requested are diesel or gasoline powered; but the option is there for you.
So that is the line up for high flow transfer pumps. These can be used for the transloading of diesel, gasoline, biodiesel, and ethanol in this particular case.
