Bulk Fuel Motor-Pumps


Motor-pumps skids designed and manufactured to transfer bulk quantity of Diesel fuel and Jet fuel according to client’s needs and requirements.

Client: United Nations (United Nations Operation in Còte d’Ivoire).
Destination: Republic of Ivory Coast – West Africa

Technical Specifications:


  • Self priming volumetric rotative vane pump, supplied with mechanical seals and over pressure by-pass valve with regulation.
  • Pump Inlet and outlet diameter of 3”.
  • Flow rate up to 1000 l/min.
  • Maximum Pressure (static) 10 bar, Head 20 m.
  • “T” cast iron strainer size , 3″ installed upstream from pump and meter.
  • Maximum Operating Temperature : 150°C.
  • Mechanical Seals are very reliable and don’t need any maintenance.
  • Ball bearings are isolated from the pumping liquid, by mechanical seals. The shaft is symmetrically supported by the ball bearings, balancing forces and reducing wear, providing an optimal operating life.
  • Adjustable “By-pass” valve, keep the inlet pressure constant. This valve doesn’t allow over pressure in the piping system and overloading on the engine.
