Pumps and Valves for Propane Autogas Fueling Stations
Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Blackmer has folded the Ebsray line of pumps and calves for propane autogas fueling stations into its product mix for North and South America markets.
Blackmer is offering Ebsray RC20 and RC25 regenerative turbine pump models for autogas-handling applications that require long pump life, quiet operation and the ability to handle high differential pressures. “In side-by-side tests with competitive models, the Ebsray pumps were proven to be 30% more efficient in terms of energy use,” states a release.
The Ebsray pumps have single-stage, bronze impellers, ductile-iron casings and high-tensile alloy-steel shafts.
High Flow Rates with High Efficiency
To complement the pumps, Blackmer is also offering the Ebsray RV18 bypass valve, which it says “enables regenerative turbine pumps to offer full pump flow while maintaining controlled, preset maximum pressures.” The RV18 is made with ASTM A395 ductile iron with steel springs, hydrostatically tested to 1,000 psi and UL-listed for LPG/autogas service.
Blackmer also offers its own LGL150 series sliding vane pump for autogas applications. The LGL150 boasts “the highest level of energy efficiency in autogas-handling with no compromise in flow rates.”
The Ebsray brand was acquired in May 2013 by Blackmer parent PSG, a Dover company.
